    I became a Christian when I was twelve and was active in my faith through my teenage years. As a University Student in Brisbane I was discipled by a CO staff person and grew greatly in my faith. Kristy became a Christian through the same ministry. After serving on staff in Brisbane we are now laboring on the campus in Dunedin, New Zealand so that labourers may be raised up for these harvest fields.

    Travis grew up in a Christian household, where he was immersed in biblical teachings. However, it was during his college years that he truly comprehended the weight of his own sin, the profound sacrifice Jesus made on the cross for him, and the significance of cultivating a personal relationship with his Savior. As a result of his involvement with Campus Outreach, Travis spent his final two years at Bethel University discovering the joy of sharing his hope in Christ with others and recognizing the pressing need to spread the message of the gospel worldwide. Motivated by the billions of people who lack access to the good news of Christ, Travis eagerly chose to join Campus Outreach in Dunedin, New Zealand, dedicating himself to sharing this transformative hope with the world.

    I went to church only twice a year as a kid and was first exposed to the gospel when I was a sophomore in high school at a weekend retreat. I left knowing that I was sinful, that my sin separated me from God, and that I needed a savior. The summer going into my senior year, God softened my heart and showed me that Jesus was my savior. I went to college and joined a fraternity so that I could tell people, who seemed to only be living for the weekend, about the joy, peace, and purpose I’d received from Christ. I fell in love with telling college students about Jesus throughout my time in school and fell in love with sharing Christ with post-modern secularized people during my time at a liberal arts school and studying abroad in London, UK. I have been given the opportunity to go to the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand to share Jesus with college students and to help build Christ-like leaders for the next generation.

    Rebecca is from Wichita, KS and attended Kansas State University to receive her degree in Elementary Education. Growing up, Rebecca was blessed to learn about God and knew she wanted God to be a part of her life. However, it was not until college that Rebecca learned what it meant to have a personal relationship with God and truly give Him control. During her time in college, Rebecca was involved with a college ministry called Student Mobilization. Rebecca’s involvement with Student Mobilization helped her learn what it looked like to develop in her faith as well as share her faith with others. Rebecca is extremely excited to be partnering with the Campus Outreach team in Dunedin, New Zealand, with the prayer that God will use her to reach college students and see them come to know Christ.

    I am from Topeka, KS, and I came to know the Lord personally during my freshman year of college. Throughout the rest of my time in college, God grew my heart for the world. This has led me to serve in Dunedin, New Zealand. I will have the opportunity to share the Gospel with students who have never heard who Jesus is and show them what it looks like to have a relationship with God. I am excited for the Lord to use me to glorify Him and make His name known among the nations!

    I grew up in a Christian family and became a Christian in high school. When I went to University, I became involved with Engage Otago (Campus Outreach Dunedin). I am so thankful for the people who invested in me and helped me to know and love God more. They showed me what it looked like to live as a Christian and helped me to grow in my faith and share it with others.

    I graduated in 2014 and worked for 4 years as a primary school teacher while continuing to volunteer with Engage. Through Campus Outreach, I went to Thailand twice for short-term missions. I saw the need for laborers in Thailand and applied to join the Campus Outreach team there.

    I served in Thailand for 2 years and was thankful to see the Lord’s work in His church and people throughout my time in Udon Thani and Chiang Mai.

    Since returning to New Zealand I continue to be convinced of the need and unique opportunities in student ministry. I am excited to be part of the team serving in Dunedin, coming alongside students to help them to know, worship, and serve Christ for the rest of their lives.

    I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home in North Canterbury. At 17 years of age, I moved to Dunedin to pursue a career in medicine. However, the Lord had greater plans. Being involved with Campus Outreach/Engage grew my heart for the lost and my passion for glorifying God through my studies. I am now on staff with Campus Outreach/Engage as the Women’s Coordinator.
