David loves hunting, fishing, and anything to do with the outdoors. More than that he loves Jesus, his wife, Laura, and his two boys Thomas and James. He is a graduate of the University of Texas and is currently working on his Masters degree at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.


Originally from the Chicago suburbs, Laura moved to Texas in 2014 after marrying David. After 15 years on staff with Cru (2 years in New Zealand, 5 years at U. of Illinois, and 8 years at Baylor), she still loves discipleship and helping women know what God’s Word says. Being outdoors, unhurried conversations, watching her kids learn new things and taking naps are just a few of the things that bring her joy.


Husband to Brie. Father to Ellie and Rae. Jeff was born and bred in Pennsylvania and served five years with the campus ministry there before following God’s call to move to Texas in 2018. Jeff has a calling and passion to expand the Kingdom of God through discipleship. He loves to read and finds great joy in being surrounded by books.


Brie was born in Austin, TX and even though her family moved to the frozen tundra of Minnesota when she was five, she was never able to shake her “y’all”. After twenty years away, she has now returned to her roots. Brie loves coffee, gardening, and cooking for guests.


A native Dentonian, Jacob graduated from the University of North Texas and worked at a church in Denton for four years before moving to Waco to intern with Cru. Two years later, he joined staff alongside his wife, Brooke. If Jacob isn’t serving Baylor students, you’ll find him on the golf course or making coffee with friends!


Bio coming soon!


Hannah and her husband David recently moved to Waco after spending the past six years in College Station. Hannah graduated from A&M in 2019 and has been in ministry since then. She loves working with college girls and especially has a heart for sorority ministry. You’ll probably find her with friends, trying new places in town, or spending time with her husband and dog Lenny!


Sean is originally from Oklahoma, but graduated from Baylor in the Fall of 2021. He enjoys country music, reading, and all things sports. If you want to hang out, you’ll find him eating fried chicken, watching college football, or playing pickup at the SLC.


Garrett is from the promised land (Wyoming). He spent the last several years working in agriculture as a horse trainer, but has had a heart for ministry and expanding God’s Kingdom.  Garrett followed his wife to Baylor and joined staff with Cru to build impactful communities.


Caitlyn loves laughing with friends, celebrating holidays, and eating chocolate cake! She graduated from Baylor University in 2023 where she was introduced to Cru and developed a deeper relationship with the Lord. If you can’t find her, the first place to look is the Student Union Building on campus circled around a group of friends. She values spending time with Jesus, fun, and loving others well!


Joe is from Houston Texas, graduated from Baylor class of 2023. He enjoys indie rock music, baseball, and cross country road-trips. If Joe isn’t on campus serving students, you’ll find him DJing, camping or playing pickleball.


Bio coming soon!

The gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope. - Tim Keller
