Mike Mehaffie and his wife Sharon have faithfully invested in young men and women for the last 44 years on the staff of Cru at North Carolina State University. In this episode, Mehaffie recalls how the ministry began on the N.C. State campus with 30 students total and has grown large enough to have 220 students in leadership positions last year.
“God is working, and we try not to mess it up.”
His incredible faith story began at age 16 when he was just too tired to change the TV channel after football practice. He saw Billy Graham on TV and wrote him a letter requesting the gospel of John.
“It started an adventure for me of walking with Christ.”
As a new believer, he didn’t know what to do, so he sought out a Bible study. He was faithful in showing up, good with people, and willing to reach out and share his faith. God used one faithful man, who recognized him as being FAT – faithful, accountable, and teachable, to disciple him for three years and encourage him in ministry.
But it is the power of prayer that resonates over every aspect of his life, marriage, and ministry.
“Little prayer equals little power, much prayer equals much power, and no prayer equals no power.”
Mehaffie’s whole life changed when he read the book of John he received from Billy Graham’s ministry. If you would like a free copy of the gospel of John from Noble Warriors, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org today.
“Jesus is the greatest model of manhood we could ever hope to look at and emulate our lives after.”
