Julie Eshelman local partner for CRUCru was established in 1951 as “Campus Crusade for Christ” by Bill & Vonette Bright on the campus of UCLA.  Its purpose is to help fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others; and helping the Body of Christ do evangelism and discipleship.  Cru has a ministry presence in 191 countries around the world and is passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ. 

 I wholeheartedly share Cru’s passion to connect college students to Jesus!  My current role is to train and develop our new campus staff to help them get to campus quickly by coaching them as they raise their financial support. 

 I joined staff with Cru because God used Campus Crusade in my life to help me grow in my new faith. It was on the campus of Arizona State University when I was a nominal Christian that a staff woman pursued me and shared the Gospel with me. It was in Campus Crusade that I learned how to study the Word of God, share my faith with others and had opportunities to go overseas to share Jesus with the world.

 Since that day I have served at UCLA, Cal Poly Pomona, and Arizona State University. During the summer time, I lead teams of students to our partnerships in the Middle East and Japan. I look forward to continuing to take teams of students all over the world so that others can hear the Gospel!
