Our Role in Lifelines

The Brown Family

Katie was married in May of 2019 and we have loved adding Jon to our little family. They live in Port Alsworth, Alaska. 

Lifelines is a ministry within Cru that Brenda and I have worked with since the summer of 2006. In February of 2012, I (Mark) transitioned from full-time local student and faculty ministry to serve as the National Director of Lifelines and a Lifelines Guide. My focus is leading our resource teams across the country and networking within the greater Cru ministry.  Brenda serves as Lifelines HR Director and as a Lifelines Guide. There are about 40 Lifelines staff that serve as guides, utilizing the outdoors to reach college students for Christ and building them in their faith. 


Currently, there are Lifelines Core Teams in the Northeast, Northwest, Midsouth, and Colorado- with other individual Lifelines Reps serving in Alaska, Vermont, Maine, Virginia, Texas, and South Carolina.

Beyond this, Brenda and I still have an active ministry locally at KU, reaching student-athletes and faculty.
