Chris and Cary Drinkard joined Campus Outreach staff in1998 and served in various roles in the Campus Outreach Augusta region for 16 years. In July of 2014, the Drinkards moved to Manila, Philippines where they helped launch a Campus Outreach ministry on two universities in the city in partnership with a local reformed Filipino church. Chris now serves as coordinator for the CO LEAD Initiative, a 2-year international ministry and development program for CO graduates. Their vision is to see hundreds of CO alumni serve and strengthen CO International ministries around the globe. Chris and Cary have three children: Susanna, Daniel, and Mary Beth.
Steve and Lindsay were both impacted by the ministry of Campus Outreach during their time at the University of Northwestern – St. Paul. There, they grew into a deeper understanding of their need for God’s grace, and they both gained the conviction of wanting others to know the good news of Jesus Christ. Steve went on staff with Campus Outreach in 2011, and after they married in November 2012, Lindsay joined Steve on staff where they both ministered to students in Minnesota. During that time, God increased their vision to minister to students in an international context. Steve and Lindsay, along with their two children, are excited to continue to bring the gospel message to university students in the Philippines and see lives transformed through Jesus Christ.
My name is Taylor Smith. I became a Christian in high school when a friend shared the gospel with me and helped me get involved in her church. When I went to college at Georgia Southern University, I got plugged into Campus Outreach almost immediately. I was taught the fundamentals of walking with God and sharing my faith, and knew I wanted to give my life away to college women after graduating college. I am currently serving in my fourth year on staff with Campus Outreach and preparing to move to Manila, Philippines. I am convinced of God’s heart for the nations and know that the Philippines is a strategic place to see God reach all of Southeast Asia and the rest of the world with men and women who love Jesus and want to see the gospel go forth!
