CRU STAFF & VOLUNTEERs






  • Pete and Michaela both became involved with Cru as students at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, and married shortly after college. After graduating, they enjoyed a few years of interning with Cru at their alma mater, followed by 7 years downstate, where they served at Illinois State University. New to Fort Collins as of Summer 2017, they both love working with Cru and are excited to see what the Lord has in store here! Pete enjoys playing around with stringed musical instruments, wood and leatherwork, and exploring the mountains. Unfortunately, he has been unable to shake his love for the Northwestern Wildcats, a reality that typically brings more heartache than joy. Michaela loves coffee and a good book, classical music, and British period dramas. With their 4 young kids, there's always something interesting happening at their house.

  • About Us: Alexandra and Bobby met in college at Fort Hays State in western Kansas, and remained good friends until reconnecting five years after Bobby graduated. We got married March of 2010, our daughter Hope was born in 2015, and our son Bridger in 2017!  Bobby has been on staff at Colorado State since 2005, and Alexandra joined in 2010. Alexandra loves to sing, play guitar, and is getting into road biking. She loves to sit down and get into deep long conversations about life, relationships, and most importantly relationship with God and how that effects everything else. Bobby loves being active, he coaches high school baseball at Rocky Mountain high school and has a deep love for all things baseball, except the red sox! ;) He loves climbing, mountain biking, but LOVES Skiing!!! He also loves getting to know new people and hear their stories. Don't be shy to contact either of us!

  • About Us: We got married in August of 2003 and started working with Cru that same year. We served in Boulder, as well as in Madrid Spain before arriving at CSU in the fall of 2006. In 2012 our family took a year away from CSU to work on the Universities in Cape Town, South Africa. We have 2 daughters Lacy and Katelyn who are amazing (dont believe us, just wait til you meet them) and our son Parker was born in May of 2014. Shannon enjoys spending time with women on campus when shes not being an amazing mom to our kids. Tyler enjoys investing in the lives of men and encouraging them to grow in their relationship with God. He loves rock climbing and is learning to road bike when the weather is nice. His real passion, however, is watching Colorado sports.

  • About Us: We've been on staff for over 10 years, all of which have been spent in Colorado invested at either CSU, UNC, or surrounding community college campuses. In addition to working on the on the Community College Campuses in Northern CO and WYO, Christian is also the regional team leader for Valor (Cru's ROTC ministry) in the Greater Northwest. We have two beautiful little girls, Lily and Anya , that keep pink, laughter, and joy flowing in our house. If you're up for a mountain bike ride, call Christian. If you're having a dance party, call Mia. If you're up for babysitting, call either one of us!:)  

  • About Us: Josh graduated from CSU in 2002, and went straight to New Zealand on an internship with Cru. He loved it so much he joined Cru staff and decided to stay in NZ for 8 years! Josh has many passions, including: running marathons, classical music, fishing, climbing 14ers, reading books and playing board games. Liz graduated from Cedarville University in 2006 with a degree in Early Childhood Education. After spending a year working with orphans in Eastern Europe, she relocated to Southern Indiana to teach Kindergarten. During her first year of teaching she was "set up" (ask us, it's a funny story!) with a zany missionary guy... and it worked out! :) We were married in 2009... and have lived in New Zealand, Orlando and now Ft Collins. We're excited to be at CSU, and we're looking forward to investing in students' lives! :)

  • About Us: As of Fall 2014 Trent and I are new to CRU. We are coming alongside the current staff team as volunteers here in Fort Collins. We were both born and raised in IL, where we too raised our 3 sons. Currently empty nesters we are excited that God has lead us to this point and is giving us the opportunity to share the Gospel with students at CSU! We both love hiking, biking and entertaining...so if your a student reading this and want to escape the dorms for an evening..give us a call. We would love to get to know and share a meal with you!!

  • About Me: My friends call me Si. I am from Northeast Colorado and graduated from Northeastern Junior College in May '14 with an associate's degree in Early Childhood Education and from Colorado State in May '16 with my bachelor's in Human Development and Family Studies.  During college I studied abroad in Costa Rica with Cru and this year I'm interning with Cru at CSU

    I really enjoy people and their individual stories. I'm a huge fan of mornings (true), lawn games, camping, coffee (really), gathering together over good food, traveling (I know, #cliché), card games, hiking, games in general, sitting with my people around a campfire, and a million more things.  This year, I get to help our ministry reach out to transfer students and students interested in Destino (Cru's Hispanic ministry), what an honor to be able to do this. My Instagram is @siannargomez, and you can find out a lot about me and my ministry by checking that out. Reach out if you have any questions or want to chat.
