We met in high school, and both earned degrees in engineering at Ohio State. God significantly impacted our lives during college, leading to our decision to join staff with Cru in 1997. We have led student movements at Ohio State, Denison, Northwestern, and Loyola. We have 4 incredible children: Ava, Elana, Annelise, and William, and we recently celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary.

Since 2010, we have led Cru’s Campus Ministry in Texas and Louisiana, including many influential universities such as U of Texas, LSU, Rice, Baylor, and Texas A&M. Through these movements; students are introduced to the gospel, trained in their faith, and mobilized for mission opportunities in the US and throughout the world. Our alumni serve as missionaries in Ethiopia, North Africa, Bologna, Greece, the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia—and more.

Dr. Tim Norman holds a MDiv (Trinity Evangelical Divinity) and a PhD in Theology (U of Bristol). He is a frequent speaker on college campuses and at conferences nationwide. He teaches graduate courses for pastors and missionaries in South Asia and Africa on the New Testament, Leadership, Theology, and Biblical Interpretation and Communication.

After more than 25 years of campus ministry, we are more passionate than ever about reaching college students with the gospel! Most of the leaders of tomorrow, in all segments of society, are on our college campuses today. Former Cru students we’ve worked with serve Christ on six continents, in the local church, and in their communities as physicians, teachers, college professors, advocates for social justice, engineers, journalists, attorneys, and the list goes on. Many came to college not knowing the hope that comes from Jesus and left as Christ-centered leaders.
