Barrett and Dayna Brown

CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ)

Barrett attended AHUMC during his high school years, as did his wife, Dayna, and his mother, Jean Brown, is still a member. All CRU employees, even those working in their home office, are required to secure funding from supporters to provide their salaries. Since 1986 God has called us to help everyone know someone who truly follows Jesus. We have served with Student Venture, The JESUS Film Project, the US Campus Ministry, and our World Headquarters. For the past 22 years we have served in different Human Resource roles to help our staff and students be who God has called them to be, and serve where He has called them as well. We have worked at raising up and developing leaders to serve effectively. Currently Barrett serves as the director of the HR team who sends, equips, resources and cares for the 1,000 staff at our World HQ, and the 1,000 Americans staff serving overseas long term. Barrett also coordinates our global response to crises that affect our 26,000 worldwide staff and ministries. He works with a team around the world who are preparing for and responding to crises ranging from health emergencies and political instability to terrorist bombings and arrests. We feel there is no better time to minister to our staff than when they encounter a crisis that affects their ability to minister effectively.

Lisa Lockwood

CSI Ministries, Jamaica

CSI mission teams have been serving in Jamaica since the mid-1970's. During that time thousands of Jamaicans have been ministered to through close, personal interaction with team members. Each ministry project, from VBS to house building, is intended to deepen a team member's relationship with the Lord, while also building relationships with fellow team members, missionaries and the Jamaicans they work closely with. The majority of teams in Jamaica choose to do a construction project, meeting various needs with a hammer and saw. Historically, one such need has been housing. Since 1988 teams have built over 600 small-houses for families and individuals. To learn more click here.
