- Huerd | GCC
Steve & Nancy Huerd Cru Phone: 651-592-6576 Website: www.give.cru.org/0392804 Address: 4806 Lakes Edge Lane Kissimmee, FL 34744 Birthday: Steve: September 25 Nancy: January 31 Mission Focus One of the greatest challenges of being a missionary is trusting God to provide all your financial needs. Steve devotes most of his time to leading this critical area in coaching our new and senior staff to ensure they are fully funded and financially faithful. He is also very involved in the HR side of ministry, helping shepherd and develop our staff to their fullest potential. A blessing is being able to send full-time workers to locations nationally and abroad that we will never be able to visit or see. Nancy's mission focus: Cru High School summer assignment coordinator, application evaluator, staff care and assisting where needed. All are opportunities to be used by God to bless, serve and assist our High School staff in helping to reach teenagers with the gospel, but they also can be challenging in hard situations. Testimony Steve's Testimony Growing up in Minnesota, I did not attend church and was sincerely searching for the truth. During my sophomore year in high school, I became a Christ follower as the result of a large outreach presented by Student Venture (Cru’s High School Ministry). I became a student leader in this movement, reaching many of my peers with the gospel. Because God had changed my life so much, instinctively, I knew God had called me to join Cru even before graduating from high school. Nancy's Testimony I grew up going to church. In second grade, I told our pastor I wanted to become a Christian and be baptized. My real motivation was because my best friend had done it and I wanted to be like her. However, something was always missing, so I put much effort into excelling in grades, sports, being a good person and thought this would please God. However, as a junior in high school we lost the state basketball championship and God used that to humble me and see my need for Him. The next day I went forward at my church saying I wanted to rededicate my life to God, but this is really when I became a Christian. Later as an adult while attending Grace Community Chapel, I realized I needed to get baptized as a true believer in the Lord. I was baptized by Pastor Miller.

When: May 9 - May 18 Where: Chongwe, Zambia (central Africa) Why: Though Zambia is majority protestant Christian, many pastors, particularly in outlying areas, have no formal Biblical training.

- PERSONAL DISCIPLESHIP | GCC
Personal Discipleship Where to Begin The process involved in achieving spiritual growth as a Christian can perhaps be accurately described through a simple phrase that is joined with the idea of Me Becoming More Like Jesus . Advancing spiritually in the direction of becoming more conformed to the image of Jesus involves an act of God’s grace that is aimed at our transformation in alignment with His purposes. However, this act of grace is also intended to function in coordination with our will and determined efforts as we engage in a life of surrender and consistent practices that are designed to further the cause of Christ in our lives. These practices are commonly referred to as spiritual disciplines . It may be helpful to consider spiritual disciplines in the context of athletes preparing for the Olympics. These individuals engage in consistent and determined training for many years so that they can be prepared to compete and win in their chosen events. If they fail to prepare properly, it is very likely that they will perform below the level of their hopes and expectations. As Christians, if our win involves increasing conformity to the image of Jesus, there are clearly things we must earnestly practice to achieve that goal. Common Spiritual Disciplines There are very exhaustive lists of spiritual disciplines that have been developed over time. While most of these lists have merit, they can also feel a bit overwhelming to many people as they try to imagine engaging in the breadth of these activities. So, for the purpose of challenging those within our church family to consider a more narrowly focused approach to the practice of spiritual disciplines, we have provided a prioritized list of the disciplines that are most commonly practiced.
