Young Life, South Jersey

Young Life is a ministry that outreaches to adolescents in the Southern New Jersey area.  They began in 1982 with a few simple ideas about sharing the truth of God’s love, which has led to time tested methods for reaching out to middle school, high school and college students in friendship and hope.  Currently, YL consists of five clubs in the local area led by 17 leaders that include the following: two high school clubs, one all area middle school club called Wyldlife, one special needs club called Capernaum, and one college club.

Young Life, Salem County

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency. Young Life exists to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith. Young Life Salem County started in 2015. There are currently two high school ministries- Woodstown High and Salem high. The area is about to begin new work, Wyldlife (ministry with middle schoolers) and Young Lives (Ministry with teenage mothers). Young Life is partnered with several local churches in the area.

The campus ministry of Cru (known globally as Campus Crusade for Christ), was born in 1951 by Bill and Vonette Bright who believed that God would reach college students today to change the whole world tomorrow.  Since then, Cru has built movements of evangelism and discipleship in 193 countries.  Over the last 3 years, God has used Cru to draw over 70 million people into saving relationships with Himself.  Jeff and Karen focus on launching these gospel movements at colleges in NJ and across the country, and equipping church members how to build relationships with these amazing young people.

CRU, New Jersey Metro CRU

With over a half-million students attending college in New Jersey, which has a Jesus following population of less than 4%, there exists a tremendous competition for the hearts, minds, and souls of college students. Despite this reality, God is making Himself increasingly known to believing and unbelieving students alike. Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) is a caring community passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ. As the Cru ministry in NJ (Jersey Metro Cru), it is our desire to join in God’s mighty work of making Jesus Christ known on every campus, influencing the state and ultimately the world. We desire to do this through the empowerment and leading of The Holy Spirit. Brianna serves with her co-laborers on the Jersey Metro team to meet students right where they are spiritually through intentional evangelism, caring community, and discipleship relationships. We trust God that, in reaching students today for Christ, we can reach the whole world tomorrow.

Juan Jose & Sara Eliker Santizo

Juan Jose & Sara Eliker Santizo

Commission Ministers Network, Guatemala

Sara knew she was called to serve in Guatemala during a short-term mission trip in 2009, but God didn’t open those doors until 2015. Throughout those five years, the Lord was preparing her – teaching her patience; how to trust completely in Him; understanding truly what it means to be filled and walk in the Spirit. Her desire is that the Lord will use her in Guatemala for His glory. Sara currently serves at New Life School in Santa María de Jesús as the Director of Marketing & Communications as well as in staff and student relations. New Life School is dedicated to serving those children with special needs. Sara also coordinated servants teams for Calvary Chapel Antigua. She plans their time and serves alongside of them while onsite. Juan José felt the call to serve full-time in ministry for years. The doors opened in 2018 as he completed and graduated from the Calvary Chapel Bible Institute Antigua. Juan José currently serves as the Administrator for Calvary Chapel Antigua. In addition, he serves the Good Samaritan Ministry and holds a weekly Bible study in Alotenango.
