Featured Missionary

Immanuel Christian BookstoreJason and Anastasia Turner
Orlando, FL - U.S.

Jason and Anastasia lived in Philadelphia, where they ministered to college and university students and where Jason served as intern/STINT coordinator for Cru’s Mid-Atlantic region, an area that was expanded to include New Jersey, New York and New England. The program encourages young people to join the mission field after graduation and hopefully continue as full-time staff. He was also the Sending Coordinator, overseeing the evaluation, hiring, on-boarding and placement of all categories of staff (full-time, intern, part-time and volunteer) for that area.

Earlier this year, Jason and Anastasia were asked to move to Cru headquarters in Orlando, FL, to take on a larger role of mobilizing laborers and sending them into the mission field. Jason describes his new role, the Domestic Sending Director, as "overseeing the intern program across the country along with part-time staff, and coordinating all the systems and processes involved in allowing people to join in the mission of making Christ known not just on college campuses but in our other US based ministries as well."

Prayer Requests:
1. For Jason and Anastasia as they adjust to new roles and additional responsibilities.
2. For interns and STINTers as they minister to students in the U.S. and around the world.
3. For Jason and Anastasia and their three children as they make the transition from Philadelphia to Orlando.
