serving with Cru :|: equipping messengers for God’s mission

I love honing a message expressed through words and visuals! I’m part of a creative team near Indianapolis, and I help develop new ministry tools using my skills in research, video editing, web design, writing, and copy editing. I also periodically coach for Bible Study Methods classes and communication training events that help Cru staff members and students speak in front of groups with confidence and lead musical worship expressively.

Personal Ministry Highlights

  • Over 40 years of ministry with Cru in the US and Canada as a musician, then a trainer, and now an innovation specialist
  • Short-term mission trips to nine countries in Asia, Europe and South America
  • Students, Cru staff members, and lay leaders from 25 countries trained to communicate God’s message through music and public speaking


With all my heart, I believe that this is God’s heart:

to see “a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne” in worship! (Revelation 7:9, NIV) God wants to redeem His creation, and He wants us to help.

Together we can help fulfill God’s vision to redeem the world.

    Seeing God Work in New Ways

    I recently heard the following encouraging stories from elsewhere in Cru. Even with summer mission trips canceled due to COVID-19, God worked in exciting new ways this summer. On Campuses in The Middle East “Faith-stretching. Awe-striking. Thrilling.” Planted amidst Middle Eastern students this past year, that is how an international …Continue reading

    The Power for Unity

    I recently coached a small group for Cru’s Bible Study Methods class, a required course for all staff members. I’ve done this twice before, but because of COVID-19, this was unique – the entire class took place online. Between the group sessions and coaches’ meetings, I spent four hours on …Continue reading

    I hope this finds all of you healthy and safe! I am doing well and working from home as part of the “new normal” brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Campuses are closed and Cru has also cancelled all conferences for a least the next couple of months. So we …Continue reading
