The Men At Work Series is a way to promote the event and get to know each other at the same time. The first few spotlights will feature members of the Immeasurably More team.
Trey and Rebecca Moore have been members at Northstar since 2013 when they were undergraduates at Virginia Tech. Trey is currently part of the Leadership Team at Northstar and Rebecca is a part of Connect leadership team and helps with Discovering Northstar, our membership class. Trey is also part of the Immeasurably More team, serving as Fundraising Team Leader.
Trey is a staffer with Cru at Virginia Tech where he works toward the “vision of seeing ‘every student know someone who truly follows Jesus’ so that every Hokie will have an opportunity to hear the gospel.” accomplishing this goal Trey disciples students, develops leaders, trains students in one on one evangelism, oversees events and conferences, and much more.
Trey’s path to ministry is a testimony to the effectiveness of Cru at VT. Trey was an immature believer with a small worldview as he entered college as a freshmen. As the first in his family to attend college his motivation was to make his family proud by obtaining an engineering degree and securing a good job. Although he would eventually graduate with a degree in Engineering Science and Mechanics during his undergrad work Trey was invited to get involved with Cru where he would begin to grow as a Christ-follower. Then during a summer mission experience with Cru, a staffer planted a seed in Trey’s heart about coming to work full-time with Cru. And as graduation approached Trey made the decision to invest himself back into students by serving with Cru.
Q. What is challenging about being a Cru staffer?
A. Being an introvert in a highly relational job. My work as a campus
minister is essentially people work so I have to make sure I get time alone to recharge. Also trusting God to provide for financially for me since I raise my salary.
Q. Since it is an assumption that you are a Christ-follQower in your vocation, is it fair to ask you how being a Christ follower impacts your job?
A. Just because a person is in a “ministry” vocation do not assume walking with Christ is automatic. I could get a lot accomplished just through hard work and self reliance but to make any real impact I have to be constantly connected to Christ, he is “life-blood” of my work.
