Dave and Crystal Hughes
Dave and Crystal Hughes, McCade (17) and Teagan (13) serve CVNext, a new branch of Campus Ventures. Crystal is the daughter of Lee and Loretta Muhr (the faithful custodian of our building) and the sister of Cassie Clement. After serving Campus Ventures for over 20 years, the Hughes are starting this new branch which is focused on helping graduates as they leave Campus Ventures and enter the work world.
Spearfish, South Dakota, is where the Hughes live. They are a very busy family. Dave received his masters in October. He has been meeting with staff, seniors in college and graduates to help cast the vision and mission of CVNext. Crystal signs for their church. She also focuses on the kids and their friends and meeting with gals. McCade will graduate this spring and will be attending South Dakota School of Mines next fall. He has done some welding sculptures. Teagan is in seventh grade. She sings in an ensemble, paints, and does photography. The Hughes recently celebrated their twenty-second anniversary.
Dave says, “As I started contacting former students, it was obvious that many were not doing well in their faith walk. There are many factors for this, but the reality was they needed encouragement to press on. . .
These graduates who were discipled in college have great potential to advance the kingdom and to be a vital part of the Church. . . One of my biggest roles currently is to help them connect with those of like heart and to keep active in their pursuit of God. . .”
Some prayer requests from the Hughes family are for Dave’s dad who has been in the hospital and rehab for ten weeks. Pray for Dave and his sister as they get his affairs in order, encourage him to keep doing rehab so he can go home, and may be assured of his standing with the Lord. Dave and Crystal also need wisdom as they help graduates transition well and help them get plugged into a like hearted community after college.
A written note of encouragement can be mailed to the Hughes family at 1645 North 3rd Street, Spearfish, SD 57783 or an e-mail can be sent to email@example.com. Thanks for praying for Dave, Crystal, McCade, and Teagan.
