    "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 (NIV) Campus Crusade for Christ, one of the world’s leading evangelistic ministries, is changing its name. Apparently the passage of time and changing cultural sensitivities have made its old name – in place since its founding on the campus of UCLA in 1951 by Bill and Vonette Bright – a liability. “Campus” evokes images of youth and enthusiasm and institutions of higher learning. But, in the ensuing 60 years, the ministry had expanded into...

    The funeral services for two Virginia Tech sophomores who apparently were shot to death last week in the Caldwell Fields section of the Jefferson National Forest are scheduled for today in Lynchburg.

    BLACKSBURG, Va., Aug. 28 -- In what has become a sadly familiar ritual, about 100 students huddled together Friday on the Drillfield at the heart of the Virginia Tech campus, weeping and singing hymns as they mourned two slain classmates. Heidi Childs, 18, and David Metzler, 19, bright and promising students who were active in Campus Crusade for Christ, were found fatally shot Thursday morning in a national park about 15 miles from campus. Police said Friday that they had no suspects.

    Seven high-ranking officers, including four generals, could face discipline for what the Pentagon considers their promotion of Christianity. The Pentagon inspector general found the seven officers to be engaged in misconduct when they appeared in a promotional fundraiser video for the evangelical group Christian Embassy three years ago, according to OneNewsNow. Christian Embassy was founded by the late Dr. Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ and ministers to diplomats, government leaders and military officers. The ministry holds prayer meetings each Wednesday morning at the Pentagon. The officers were said to be in uniform at the Pentagon when they expressed...

    HAMPTON -- Lauren McCain is still talking to people and sharing her faith. Six weeks after she was killed in the April 16 massacre at Virginia Tech, the 20-year-old from Hampton is beginning to attract attention from churches and Christian groups across the country through an 8 1/2-minute video clip -- filmed less than two months before her death -- in which she talks about her faith and her belief in an afterlife. Her father, David McCain, in his first public comments since her death, said the video is a fitting legacy for his daughter. "That was her desire," he...

    The CBS film crew just finished shooting at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. The focus of the story is the increased spiritual interest of college students and their involvement with Christian groups. CBS shot the entire UW weekly meeting with fantastic footage of a classic Crusade gathering with students streaming in and hanging from the rafters. They also filmed an entire freshmen girls dorm Bible study. Two students were interviewed sharing how they left the party scene when their lives were changed by Jesus. Now they are leading Bible studies. The feature is tentatively scheduled to run on Wednesday,...

    College students are replacing the sun, sand and surf of a typical spring break with the mud, muck, mold and mildew of Katrina relief, according to a campus ministry spokesman. Campus Crusade for Christ has drawn thousands of students from campuses across the nation to spend their respective spring breaks helping Gulf Coast communities recover and rebuild. The campus ministry had originally planned on 8,000 participants but drew another 2,000 student registrants to the Katrina-devastated lands. Students flew and traveled by bus for up to 36 hours from such cities as Berkeley, Calif., and Buffalo, N.Y., for the "rolling" spring...

    More Evangelicals are attending Ivy League universities where spiritual interest is growing more than ever, according to university faculty and campus fellowship officials. "People are more hungry than I've ever seen; people want to know if it's true or not," said Craig Parker of The Navigators, according to CBN. "I've seen a growing spiritual interest." Noting the increase in Evangelicals at Ivy League schools, Michael Lindsay, a Ph.D. candidate at Princeton University, said, "This is the unintended consequence of having a more diverse student body. As these elite institutions have recruited geographicallythey've also produced religious diversity, so there are more...

Edington is an extremely respected minister and at the time was the personal pastor to Bill Bright, founder of the megaministry Campus Crusade for Christ.Edington could have retreated into his grief, but instead, he preached three Christmas sermons that week on a topic...

    When Karol Wojtyla stepped out on the Vatican balcony on October 16, 1978, as the new Pope John Paul II, waving to the crowds in St. Peter's Square on the first day of his auspicious papacy, the person preaching for him in his home pulpit back in Krakow, Poland, was none other than Billy Graham. Behind that fact is a surprising story of the late pope's personal involvement with American evangelicals. With his passing, it is time to tell that story. In the mid-1970s, American mission organizations like the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association began taking the gospel behind the Iron...

    Acting on a tip, FBI agents in early October began digging up a vacant, swampy lot in Queens with a backhoe, searching for bodies of Mafia victims. One person the agents were seeking disappeared 24 years ago after he accidentally killed the 12-year-old son of John Gotti, the late "Teflon Don" mobster. I knew exactly where they were digging. I had been on that lonely dead end on Easter. For the past two years, I have been searching hundreds of streets and alleyways to discover the civilizing effect of Christ on New York City. I could have told them where...
