Cru | Faculty Commons


Rick and Sonya are committed to bringing all the resources of the university (faculty, students, and ideas) to the world for the advance of the loving rule and reign of Jesus Christ. They dream of the day when movements of Christian faculty willingly wrestle with the ever-challenging question: “As Christ-followers, what should we do in the academy?”

Rick has been the Executive Director of Faculty Commons since 2005. Rick has also directed the student ministries of Campus Crusade at Rice University and Duke University. He is a summa cum laude graduate from both Georgia Tech and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

Focus Points/Highlights of Ministry:

  • Co-authored the book A Grander Story for Christian professors
  • Using the book to launch new faculty groups across the country and the world
  • Sending profs and students on mission trips

Prayer Requests:

  • For us to walk with Jesus
  • We need wisdom/good models for launching/resourcing Christian faculty groups at a distance
  • We desire to send more professors overseas for the cause of the gospel
  • Pray God would bless Christian professors in the academy
  • Ask God to raise up more Christ-following professors in every university
