Featured Missionary

Jason and Anastasia TurnerJason and Anastasia Turner
Philadelphia, PA - U.S.

Jason has been intern coordinator for Cru's Mid-Atlantic region, where he has been responsible to recruit, accept, set up, resource and shepherd each intern class in the Mid-Atlantic states where there are 2.7 million students on 638 campuses and in-partnership locations around the world. The program encourages young people to join the mission field after graduation and hopefully continue on as full-time staff. Cru recently went through a reorganization, which expanded the geographic area for which Jason is responsible. He is now the intern/STINT Coordinator for Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and New England. He is also the Sending Coordinator and oversees the evaluation, hiring, on-boarding and placement of all categories of staff (full-time, intern, part-time and volunteer) for that area.

At Cru's annual winter conference in Baltimore in December, attended by over 1,000 students from the East Coast, Jason and Anastasia connected with interns who have been ministering on campuses this academic year, heard stories of how God is working on their campuses, and ministered to and resourced them for the semester and years ahead.

Prayer Requests:
1. For Jason and Anastasia as they adjust to added roles and new responsibilities.
2. For interns and STINTers as they minister to students in the Mid-Atlantic region and around the world.
3. For students who made commitments to the Lord at Cru's winter conference.
