Missionary Highlight: Adam and Alicia Penning

Today's Missionary Highlight: Adam and Alicia Penning 

Serving in New York City


Adam serves as the Manhattan Metro Campus Field Director for Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru)

Prayer Requests:


For college students to be open and receptive to the Gospel and for our staff to be courageous and compassionate as they share the good news. 

We are trusting God to reach freshmen on each of our campuses this fall. Pray for 60 freshmen to get involved throughout the city and for 1/2 of those to be at NYU. 

Security in the city is tight and there is a lot of red tape to cut in order to become a student club on private universities. Pray for new and continued access to college campuses in the city. 


We are leading through a lot of organizational change. Pray for a heart, shared vision and strategy for our team.  Pray for Adam as he leads through this season. 

For our team as we continue to add people. This fall another 8 staff will join us in the city, brining the total staff up to 23. Last fall we started with 5! This is so exciting and yet chalenging as we build team dynamics and culture. Pray for the staff who are new to the city, to adapt, learn and grow through their transition.  

Pray for the new launch of 2 new teams in Brooklyn and Queens.


Pray for us as we continue to adapt to urban life in New York. We love it so far!

Pray for our family as we navigate 3 children in New York Public School.

Pray that we can bring the light of the gospel to the diverse and international families of our children’s classmates.

Pray for rich friendships and a deep walk with Jesus. 


Thanks so much to Adam and Alicia for sharing this brief look into your life on the mission field. More missionary highlights are coming soon!
