Here’s some highlights of the annual Cru Conference this past December. It was my favorite one in recent memory.
There is nothing like the a New Years party with more than 500 students. Let the craziness begin!
Students in the main session gather around a team of recent graduates heading overseas for a year to pray for and commission them!
Students were trained, equipped and set loose to have conversations with people across the city. A group of students during the afternoon gather in Pioneer Square to pray for the city of Portland.
Students served the schools of Portland during an afternoon of service. Here they cleaned and organized a whole room of teaching materials. The Portland Public Schools are facing a desperate budget crisis. The response from the various principals of these schools was off the charts positive.
Two years ago we had three students from the Portland area attend Cru Conference, last year 16 and this year almost 30. We’re starting to see the fruit of what we’re doing here in Portland. Pray for these students below. Many of them are leading significantly on their campus.
