It was great having the Pottorff family with us this past Sunday and hearing how God led them to begin serving as full time missionaries through Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru). Ben and Lesli shared what they have learned through the life of Abraham during this transition and challenged us to have the same willing heart and faith to follow God’s call on our own lives (audio message below). Now that we have heard from the Pottorffs, what’s next? Obviously prayer is vitally important for anyone stepping out in radical faith to do the work of the gospel, but sometimes our own radical steps of faith involve tangible support for those God has called out into full dependence of him. The Pottorffs cannot begin serving on campus at the University of Tennessee until they get fully funded, so here are their biggest needs to enable the Porttorffs to get on campus:

Have questions about Cru? The Pottorffs will be in town until 8/13/16 and would love to meet with you personally. Email Ben directly to set up an appointment.

CRU CAMPUS MINISTRY

The Pottorffs will be missionaries on the University of Tennessee campus during the school year and will participate in 6-week mission trips in the summers – both internationally and state side.

CRU’S 3 FOLD STRATEGY

Cru has a 3-fold strategy of making disciples: winning people to Jesus, building them up in their faith, and then sending them out to make disciples. We will be sharing the gospel on the campus, as well as meeting with students for one-on-one discipleship, and also in small groups to answer questions about life and point them towards the Cross and Jesus Christ.

BECAUSE OF CRU…

  • Every 3 seconds someone hears about Christ!
  • Every 2 minutes someone comes to Christ!
  • 82,000 students are being ministered to through the Cru college ministry alone!!!
  • Over 16,000 students are beginning to share their faith.

PARTNERSHIP IN CRU

Cru is a non-profit organization and has no central funds for paying salaries and ministry expenses; therefore, like many other mission
organizations, its missionaries have to raise funding to be a
missionary. We have been asking the Lord to show us who He wants to be a part of our TEAM!!! Would you and your spouse please pray about supporting our ministry financially (either monthly, yearly, or a special gift)? Our greatest needs are either a monthly gift or yearly gift since it counts towards our monthly support goal. Although, special gifts are still desired since it helps with mission trips, ministry
expenses, etc.

We must find a team of partners who will give $100 monthly or some other amount to support our ministry. As soon as this team is
complete, we can turn our full attention to reaching people for Christ.

OUR COMMITMENT TO OUR PARTNERS

  • To work diligently to touch the lives of people for Jesus Christ.
  • To let our partners know how God is blessing our ministry.
  • To be wise stewards with the money God has entrusted to us.
  • To share prayer concerns with one another.

PARTNERSHIP

Your partnership can make a difference in reaching people for Christ. Would you be willing to make a monthly commitment of $100 or some other amount?
