One of the most exciting programs over the last few years at RTS Charlotte is the Center for Campus Ministry (CCM). The CCM is designed to equip our students for the challenges that are unique to campus ministry–and there are many. The college campus is one of the most critical battle grounds in our world today, and we are pleased to play a role in sending well-trained men and women to labor there.
The CCM involves a specialized degree emphasis in campus ministry, as well as the CCM Fellowship (a community of folks headed to campus ministry), CCM events and lunches, and more. You can read more about it here.
While the CCM serves a number of different campus ministries, it is no surprise that Reformed University Fellowship has become one of our biggest constituencies. Many RTS Charlotte alumni have become RUF pastors or staff over the years, and we look forward to that trend continuing in the future.
For that reason, I am pleased that this installment of the Where Are They Now? alumni series is focused on Crawford Stevener, class of 2014 and RUF pastor at Duke University (and my former TA!). But, he has just taken a call as the new RUF pastor at Stanford University and will be moving there this Summer.
Crawford’s wife, Rachel, also received her degree at RTS (MABS) and I hope to include her in a future installment in the series. [Read more…]
