Zach and Emily serve in East Asia (Undisclosed Location) in a major university city, multiplying disciples in the universities where they work.
Description of Work & Ministry
Zach and Emily have both served with Cru for over 10 years, and currently serve at UNC-Chapel Hill to win, build, and send college students out to the world as Christ-centered-multiplying disciples. After 5+ years of reaching college students in East Asia, God used the pandemic in 2020 to eventually bring them back to their alma mater for this season of life and ministry.
Today’s students have less exposure to the Gospel than ever, so they are excited to connect them to Jesus, deepen their faith, and engage them in God’s global mission. Among other things, Zach and Emily are passionate about seeing young men and women turn from the narratives of the world and grasp the larger story that God is calling them into, using their experience to coach and develop the younger staff on their team, and raising up future “sent ones” for the workforce and international mission fields.
- Zach and Emily are currently trusting God to provide student leaders in their ministry for the next school year. They believe that God wants to use students to reach those around them in their dorms, classrooms, and clubs. Please pray that God would lead the right students to serve in areas like leading Bible studies, outreach, and prayer, and to generally be looking for opportunities to care for and talk about Jesus with others.
- Cru at UNC is committed to sending students to 2 international locations: Prague and a new location in the Middle East. Please pray that God would help students understand His heart for those near and far, and raise up students to go this summer, next school year, and beyond.
- Both of them serving on campus and raising a 2-year-old has its joys and challenges! Please pray that God would help us stay rooted in Christ and His Word, to be quick to apologize and forgive each other, to raise their son, Isaiah, to know, love, and follow Jesus.
