Aloha, my name is Wes. I graduated from UH in the 90's and was involved in Cru as a student. After graduating, serving overseas and working with international students, I am privileged once again to find myself involved in Cru. It's been awhile, but I've realized that even though much has changed, much has remained the same. People still need the Lord.


The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers few. God still commands us to, " Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to everyone!" It is a privilege to be working along side my younger brothers and sisters in this eternal work. To God be all the glory!

Moving to Hawai'i as well as serving at Cru has grown and stretched my faith in the Lord in more ways than I can count. As I continue to serve at UH Manoa my continual prayer is that I would INSPIRE and make an IMPACT on college-aged students through what God has done and continues to do in my life.


As I partner with the Lord, my hope is that I EQUIP students to listen to the HOLY SPIRIT to direct their lives and eventually be able to be SENT into the WORLD to use their talents and gifts in their every day lives to glorify God in all they do so they can further WIN others to Christ by LOVING, SERVING and SHARING THE GOSPEL.
