  • Campus Crusade for Christ: What's in a Name? ("Crusade" dropped because of bad image it evokes)

    "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...

    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...

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...

    The Supreme Court refused Monday to hear an appeal from the Boy Scouts over what the organization says is discrimination because of its policy against hiring gays. The case revisited the gay rights fight surrounding the high court's ruling four years ago that the Boy Scouts have the right to ban openly homosexual leaders. This time, the question was whether states may treat the Scouts differently than other organizations because of that policy. The Scouts asked the justices to hear a case from Connecticut, where officials dropped the group from a list of charities that receive donations through a state...

But students can hear the raucous music emanating from one old stone building long before they step inside. "Blessed be Your glorious name!" sings a throng of 100-plus students, led by amped-up guitarists, a drummer, and backup singers on stage. It would take more than rain or exams to keep them away from these Thursday nights of singing, praising God, and sharing their relationships with Jesus.

However, the legal director of the Hawaii branch of the American Civil Liberties Union defended the rights of the Campus Crusade for Christ to pass out such material.
