NEWARK, Del. — Blue Hens for Christ, the campus ministry of the University of Delaware, is building a daily prayer team of 23,028 people. 

“We believe to effectively reach the campus here, we need one person praying for every student and academic faculty here,” minister Rusty Jordan said. To join the prayer team, see www.PrayforUD.com.


JONESBORO, Ark. — The Campus for Christ organization, formerly known as the National Campus Ministries Seminar, is launching an effort to plant campus ministries.

Chris Buxton will lead the effort while continuing to direct the Wolflife campus ministry at Arkansas State University.

Campus for Christ wants to do more than just host a conference each year, Buxton said.

“We want to ask students from existing strong campus ministries to form teams among those students who are graduating within a semester or so of each other,” he said. “With our assistance, they would relocate to a campus that’s in need of a campus ministry. In some cases, there will be partner churches already in place to assist the work.”



JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. — Childplace Inc. has a 50-year history of serving children and families in southern Indiana, including operating a 22-acre residential campus in Jeffersonville.

Now the child-care agency, associated with Churches of Christ, is taking over operations at the facility formerly known as KingsField Children’s Home in Sellersburg, Ind., Childplace CEO Nathan Samuel said.

“The opening of a second residential treatment campus will allow Childplace to expand services and meet the needs of children and adolescents potentially statewide,” Samuel said.



ABILENE, Texas —
Rick Lytle, longtime business college dean at Abilene Christian University, has been named director of its new Center for Leadership and Faith Development and CEO of CEO Forum Inc.

Lytle has been involved with the CEO Forum for a decade. The organization comprises about 225 Christian CEOs and senior executives who serve companies with at least $100 million in revenue.

“This new center and my role with CEO Forum opens a spectrum of additional opportunities for COBA (College of Business Administration) to partner even more with the world’s best business leaders who also have a heart for Christ,” Lytle said.
