London, United Kingdom - Serving with CRU (www.cru.org)

 

 

Nicole began working with the Student Ministry of Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) in 1996, after she graduated from Oregon State University. Since then she has worked with university students in the US and around the world. After working with the Campus Ministry at the University of Washington in Seattle, she then spent 10 years in Florence, Italy serving as the Campus Director at the University of Florence and then as the National Student Director for Italy. She found her way back to Portland, Oregon for four years to work on the Northwest Regional Global Missions Team for Cru, helping to  mobilize staff, students and faculty to go to the world, and also coaching Cru Interns serving internationally to help launch Student Led Movements around the world.

 

In the fall of 2016, Nicole moved back overseas to work with Cru (called Agape UK) in Britain and to serve as the Associate Student Director for the UK. She is helping to coach and develop Agape Staff and also part of the local student team in London. After nearly 20 years of working with University students, she still loves getting to see students come to know Christ, to grow in their faith and to challenge them to come help change the world.

 

Nicole says, “When I think about being a part of helping to fulfill the Great Commission by launching Student Led Movements around the world, what I envision are movements of students from every tribe, tongue and nation who are boldly declaring, 'I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.' Students who have understood the truth of the gospel, are growing in their faith who love Jesus above all other things and are galvanized to not only reach their own campuses, but are compelled to mobilize others to go to and make disciples.”

 

 

PRAYER REQUESTS

 

1. Pray for our Agape Student Life Staff in this season of transition. We had  Seven Senior staff transition off staff this summer, most of them going to serve the local church, but transition is always hard. It's change of relationship and people are feeling that.

 

2. Pray for me, my goal is to visit every city with a Student Life Team by April and to sit down with all of our staff and get to know them. I want to listen, to hear what are the things they love about what they do, what is hard for them etc.. and to just come alongside and listen. In my role as the Associate Student Life Director, caring for our staff is one of my most strategic roles.

 

3. Pray for our Student Led Movements in London. Pray that on each of our three campuses (Kings College, London School of Economics and City University) that the Lord would raise up more student leaders. Pray that we would have Student Leaders with a heart to reach non Christian Students on their campus and that they would see their campuses as an opportunity to be involved where God is already at work in the lives of Students.

 

4. An area where I have been asked to give leadership to is in partnership and collaboration. We recognize that Agape is only a part of God's Kingdom work in the UK, but we would love to partner and collaborate with local churches and other organizations so that in the UK people would experience God's unconditional Love where they Study, Work and Live. Pray for me as I seek to help make Agape more visible. There are many opportunities to meet and network, but please pray for strength and energy for me as I meet new people. Especially now in this season of grief, those social settings, which I love, are more draining than they would normally be.

August 2017

 

Hello Friends!!

 

I hope you have been having a lovely summer. I have been praying for many of you in the past weeks, with the threat of fires in the Northwest and the flooding in Houston. Though I am a few miles and a bit of an ocean away, you are near to me always and I will continue to lift you up in Prayer.

 

Last time I wrote I shared that I was going on Holiday and asked if you would pray that I would rest. The Lord answered your prayer, it was such a refreshing holiday, and I came back feeling so rested. You know my life and that it is not always easy for me to slow down and when I do, I can still not really slow down, but the Lord really worked through your prayers and I wanted to say thanks.

 

Since my Holiday, I have been catching up on a few things with work and I went to my first Agape Staff Conference. What a great week of studying God's Word together. I did a class on the Upper Room Discourse in John, which was incredible good and also very challenging. I also got a chance to connect with our Student Life Staff and some of our new team leaders as well. The last night of the conference was our commissioning and I was asked to be the speaker for that. Needless to say I was quite nervous, to be in front of all the UK Staff with a wide range of ages and ministry focus, it's a broad group to speak to, but the Lord showed up. I spoke on John 20:21 "As the Father sent me, I now also send you." I spoke on how often when we think of the Great Commission we focus on the What--Make Disciples, by Going, Baptizing and Teaching or even the Where--All Nations, but often we don't look at the How. How did the Father send the Son and what does that then mean for us, what is the How of our calling. If I manage to get a copy of it, I will try to send it along.

 

Now we are starting to gear up for the year. Please be praying for our London and Cambridge Staff and Student Leader Retreat the 13th-17th of September. We have 10 student leaders from London coming this year, which is double from last year and about 6 students who couldn't even join us. It is amazing what we are seeing with our Student Leaders in London and we have doubled the number of campuses we will be on this year as well. Pray for our Team Leader Meetings next week, the 7th and 8th. We have some new team leaders this year and I am really excited to see what God is going to do.

 

With Love,

Nicole
