Starting fresh is something people always yearn to do. And I am just the same. Right now, my wife and I are applying to be on staff with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) and it is an exciting time.
Exciting because we can see lives changed through our impact at the collegiate level. But also scary because we have to move outside of our comfort zone and reach out to those people who desire to make an impact in this world in a great way.
Most college students I know are looking to change the world in whatever facet they choose. They are looking to go aggressively into whatever avenue affords them and take charge. And this would be an honor to help push students further. These are the types of people who don’t take crap from anybody and they don’t care what you know as long as you reach out and share that love and desire with the world.
One other benefit is that if you can’t reach these students in college for Christ, they probably won’t ever be reached for Christ. Studies have shown that college is the time that you build a foundation on where your life will be headed. Even more so than high school and after this time.
And to be a part of that is exciting. But also scary.
Not just scary because of the work that we will be doing and the students we will have the opportunity to impact. But scary because when one joins Cru, one has to raise the funds necessary to support themselves. And that is terrifying to my wife and I. I am not sure how to fundraise other than through a a bake sale or car wash and to do so while putting my family’s livelihood on the line takes that fear up another few notches.
But all in all, this is where we feel led at the moment and we are trusting God to bring us to the realization of how to do it. So be praying and if you are willing, send us an email at musicbunch[at]hotmail[dot]com or jasonbunch89[at]gmail[dot]com. We can tell you more about our heart and what we may need from each of you.
