Renee is a conference and events specialist for the Red River Region of Cru, encompassing the states of Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. She creates conferences and events that help meet the spiritual and practical needs of the region in order to see the Great Commission fulfilled in this generation. Events and conferences occur throughout the year and include large conferences of over 1,000 students and smaller retreats to refresh and encourage campus staff, as well as trainings for students preparing for missions.
Praise: God really met our regional staff as we engaged in discussions related to diversity in the ministry and reaching every student (we're often more prone to reach students similar to ourselves or our culture). God is growing our relationships with our ethnic minority brothers and sisters to press into ethnic diversity challenges. Praise: For a great winter conference in 2016 around understanding the Spirit-filled life, incorporating different types of worship that are contextualized to different cultures.
Prayer: Pray for us to continue to move forward in growing our skills and understanding to craft conferences that incorporate students from varied backgrounds while also improving the quality and systems set up to execute conferences with excellence. Prayer: Pray we continue to grow more dependent on the Lord to move in powerful ways.
