Emily and Damon are working in campus ministry with CRU at Appalachian State University. They spend most of their time in the following ways: one-on-one discipleship with students, leading small groups of 8-12 students, leading weekly large group sessions, and taking students to conferences, retreats, and missions trips over Spring Break (Guatemala) and in the summer.
“There are over 18,000 students enrolled at App State, and we absolutely love working alongside college students as they grow in their faith and taking the message of the Gospel to students on campus who do not know Christ. We long to see Jesus Christ transform the lives and hearts of college students and equip them to follow Jesus for a lifetime.”
- Pray that students would develop a love for God’s Word– that they would not just go to “easier” sources for truth (social media, books about God, etc), but would grow in their understanding of Scripture and learn to love the God of the Bible.
- Pray that as they develop a love and understanding of Scripture, students would stand firm in TRUTH in the midst of a cultural current that can so easily consume them.
- Pray for students (and us!) to develop a heart for the lost and respond in sharing their faith both on campus and in other parts of the world through mission opportunities.
