Shannon Mellgren: Finance Committee

Saturday, January 3rd, 2009


Year: Senior

Majors: Accounting/Church Music

Hometown: Waconia, Mi-na-so-ta

(Yes, I do have an accent, kind of)

I help keep track of the finances for CRU, making sure money is used wisely and in the best ways possible.  I also take care of reimbursements for students.  Campus Crusade for Christ has been a major influence toward shaping me into an authentic Christian leader, there is still plenty to be done. But that is the beauty of it, there is always room for improvement. A favorite verses is Proverbs 16:9 “In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.” Trust in Him and depend upon Him for everything! I have enjoyed being a part of CRU because of the challenge to step out of my comfort zone in being a disciple for Christ and Christian fellowship.

Rachel Hessler: Large Group Committee

Rachel Hessler

Hi! My name is Rachel Hessler, class of ‘10!  If you’re interested, my
official title is “Large Group Committee Leader,” which basically means that
I’m in charge of all things Monday Night CRU.  So if anyone ever wants to
help out with worship or technology stuff, or knows a great speaker, shoot
me an email! I am from Cleveland, Ohio and am a Biology/Chemistry major.
Someday I want to become a medical missionary and work with people who can’t
afford health care and don’t know Jesus.  Some things I love (in no
particular order): singing and music, mountains, kids, Jesus, my roommate
Molly, the movie Pride and Prejudice (and the memories it inspires), reading
really good books by Ted Dekker and C.S. Lewis, and following my dreams and
my God with all my heart.

Molly Grime: Worship Coordinator

Molly Grime

Hey, My name is Molly Grime and I am a Nursing major that is expected to graduate in May 2010, providing that nothing bad happens before then :)  I am from Archbold, Ohio which is a very small town in Northwest Ohio, and my house is almost completely surrounded by cornfields lol.  I was very fortunate to have grown up in the church however I did not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ until I attended college.  Campus Crusade has facilitated many opportunities for me to grow in my faith and develop a deeper relationship with God.  Through Campus Crusade I am the head of the Outreach Committee, I lead a worship team for our large group meetings on Monday nights, and I also co-lead a Bible study for upperclassmen women.  Each of these things has been very important to me and has helped me become more of a leader committed to Christ.  A little more about me:  I would someday love to live in Africa working as a nurse, I absolutely love to play the guitar, intramural sports is a big part of my college life, I have the best roommate in the world (Rachel Hessler), and I love being there for people.  If you have any other questions, just ask!  I would love to get to know you!

Mathematics & Secondary Education

Griffith, IN

Since coming away to school, God has revealed Himself to me in crazy new ways. He’s walked with me through the fire that has refined my faith and my love. He’s comforted me in my loneliness and confusion. He’s been faithful and faithful and faithful. He’s blessed me with this little extension of His Body that’s in Campus Crusade. He’s taught me what it means to cultivate TRUE friendships and to unite with people of all different backgrounds within Christianity. It’s beautiful. : ) The most important thing in my life is to KNOW God (John 17:3)

“When you pass through the waters,

I will be with you;

And when you pass through the rivers,

They will not sweep over you.

When you walk through the fire,

You will not be burned;

The flames will not set you ablaze.

For I am the Lord, your God,

The Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”

–Isaiah 43:2-3a
