Leading the Sending Team at CCC Headquarters

stevesummer2010We help fulfill the Great Commission by sending out missionaries. Steve leads the Sending Team, a group that recruits, evaluates, helps prepare and train, and places US staff members in overseas assignments for Campus Crusade. These individuals and families that our team sends are serving in strategic roles for American staff to best contribute in outreach, discipleship, training of nationals and cross-cultural impact for the gospel worldwide.


As a leader for the Sending Team, Steve also participates in providing direction for his department, the Human Resource Connexion, a broader group that provides overall member care for our missionaries and their families, and assists in all those family transitions going and coming from overseas.

His Sending Team also recruits staff and volunteers to fill the many positions at the world headquarters.

For 23 years we served in Japan with CCC. Steve and Rochelle gained much experience on campus, leading teams of campus staff, serving in operations, finance, and human resources. Steve also developed Jesus Film strategies and plans for Japan CCC. He created new resources and evangelistic websites for Japan as well. We trust that the Lord has us in a good position to use these experiences as we continue to serve missionaries.

rochellesummer2010Rochelle continues to care for our children and home and helping us all adjust to this “new country!” She is coaching young women who are joining our staff in their ministry partner and funding development as they join staff through Steve’s team’s work. She is learning about outreach opportunities for moms here, leading women’s bible studies, and seeking to make connections with Japanese as well.

We are also assisting the Jesus Film East Asia team in ways that help reach more Japanese and Asians. Steve makes use of his Japanese by following up those who respond in Japanese to CCC’s many evangelistic websites as an online missionary. Please pray with us as God leads us in this new adventure of faith!
