Ben will be starting work with UCCF as CU Staff Worker in August 2021.
My Dad first pointed me towards the Christian Union at university. He’d spotted a poster in my halls while he and Mum were dropping me off. God used that little nudge to shape my life at university and beyond. At that first CU meeting, I met young people like me with an infectious excitement to share the Gospel with their peers. They helped me settle into a local church and brought me alongside them in proclaiming Jesus on campus. By God’s grace pretty soon I was inviting housemates and course mates to hear the gospel and seeing lives change as God called people from loads of different backgrounds to become one with us in Christ.
CUs are uniquely placed to guide students who are at risk of wandering (like me) into churches and to share the gospel of Jesus with students in a way that speaks into their hopes, fears and desires.
In August I’ll start work in a new role supporting the Christian Unions in Sheffield. I’ll be seeking to encourage, support and equip students to speak boldly about Jesus to their peers as they live for him at uni. It’s a scary step but I’ve seen first-hand the incredible effect this can have on the lives of Christian and non-Christian students alike.
I’d really love it if you’d consider supporting me by committing to regularly pray for my work and for the CU’s in Sheffield. It’d also be wonderful if you’d consider giving financially to help support me and the CUs in this life-changing work. Either way please get in touch!
