Kyle & Carolyn Coleman

Kyle & Carolyn work with Athletes in Action/Cru Campus. Founded in 1951 by Bill Bright on the UCLA campus now reaches every corner of the world as we are in over 192 different countries.

We want to Win students to Christ, build them up in their faith, and send them out into the world to do the same wherever God calls them. Our hope is that every person on the college campus would know someone who truly follows Jesus.

Even with Covid we saw over 200 students engage in our bible studies and discipleship this past year. We sent two graduates to the Middle East as missionaries of the gospel. We launched a new Athletes in Action ministry at Winona State. We say 20 students place their faith in Jesus and engage in being discipled.

  

  • I (Kyle) am a team leader this coming year. Pray I lead out of humility and brokenness and that I experience the gospel myself daily. Pray campus allows us to have large group meetings and that the athletic coaches Grant us access to their teams.

How Can We Help?

We are $500/month short of being fully funded. We need laborers. I am the only Athletes in Action Staff trying to reach 8 campuses.
Please pray God would raise up more full time staff to join me.

Liz & Luis Pomares

We serve with Cru México. It is a ministry focused on reaching students with the Gospel, helping them to grow in their faith, and sending them out to reach others with the Gospel.  In Mexico City we currently have several college student movements, as well as a movement for recent graduates.  

We have served with Cru for the last 12 years, most recently in Mexico City, a city with a population of approximately 8 million people, 400 universities, and a great need for Jesus to be shared with everyone. Our heart and passion is to share the good news about Jesus among college students, help them grow, and learn how to do the same. We serve with a team of 9 staff and are working to start new movements in more universities throughout the city.

Recently we finished an 8 week on-line training class called MC2. Together with students from 9 different cities in Mexico, we learned how to share our faith in simple ways with people from our relational network that God has put in our path to help them know Jesus. During this time in total we had 282 spiritual conversations, 128 evangelisms and 24 decisions for Christ. Within these decisions, Miguel, one of the participants, for several weeks followed the process of learning together with his best friend who did not know Jesus, but the last week Miguel shared the gospel with him and that day his best friend accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior! Now they will start discipleship together. We give glory to God for the people who accepted Christ as Lord and Savior during these weeks and who are going to start a discipleship process with the people who shared with them.

  

  • Please pray for our upcoming virtual summer project called "Sent" from July 18-23, where we will have times of training and teaching, virtual outreach, and online fellowship. 
  • To have a safe and enjoyable time in Wisconsin connecting with family, friends, and Community Church. We will be here until mid August 2021. 
  • Join us in praying for a safe return to classes for college students this September (as well as our children). Some colleges have not had classes the majority of the pandemic. We also need wisdom as we determine what ministry will look like in this transition. Many people in Mexico are still not vaccinated. They are just starting the 40-49 age group in several districts and states. So many people will be going back without their vaccines.

How Can We Help?

We are currently inviting more people to join our ministry support team both in prayer and financial giving. We need to raise an additional $400 in monthly support. If you are interested in connecting and hearing more about how you can support us please contact us via email.
