Region: North / North–west
Position: Northern Team Leader, working with CUs in Belfast, while leading the staff and volunteers.
Why Chris loves working with CUI and feels student ministry is significant:
In the summer of 2011 I headed to Canterbury for university, ready to live up the life that I felt I felt I deserved. One imbedded in an active social scene that revolved around rugby, nights out and occasionally attending classes.
Yet it didn’t take long for my focus to shift! Little did I realise how one lady simply asking me what I thought of Jesus would change everything. A few months later I walked through a park in Canterbury after attending an Alpha course and Jesus was the Son of God, it couldn’t have been clearer. God was real!
It changed everything! How could I not let others know? This new found joy in knowing my creator meant I wanted to tell others. And University offers an opportunity like no other. There are so many people heading to university, wanting answers to the questions they’ve never had the chance to ask. I believe this gives us the incredible opportunity to present the true Jesus to the thousands who come to university open, and searching for identity, hope and meaning.
