He (the student activities director) didn’t give me much of a chance to talk, but he said what he can do is put us under re-organizational status, which means we can meet, but we can’t participate (as an official organization that is) in other campus events, or do fund-raising or anything like that. We have to send him a letter explaining why we didn’t meet the Sept. 30th deadline, then he will ‘check with policy’ and see what he can do, and get back to us then. He also told me they basically gave us multiple opportunities to do this, that they started telling us last April that we needed to fill out the form, along with contacting our advisor
So I guess for now we’ll meet in Dearborn, until this stuff gets straightened out. Should I write the letter, or should staff, what do you think? Thanks guys!
Jen is the student Vice-President of the group at Edinboro, she has done an excellent job doing the footwork to get these things done. Pray for our continued ministry there and that students would not be discouraged from this.
As of the beginning of October, Edinboro University has revoked CCC’s status as a recognized group. To clarify, this is not a case of the University discriminating against us.
At the beginning of every school year every recognized student organization has to turn in paperwork confirming that they are still an active group – the paperwork is due on September 30th.
On September 30th I received this email from the faculty advisor Dr. Hurd:
The Campus Crusade for Christ has not sent in their paper work. The Organization Registration form. It is due today. After today they will be inactive for a semester. Please get this paper work in. Thank you

So, needless to say all the running around was not done that day, it was just not possible. Last Wednesday, when we went to go into our room to meet the doors were locked and we were not allowed to enter because we are no longer an active group and therefore are not allowed to reserve rooms. We met out on the basketball courts and had a great time of worship and prayer – but the situation is obviously less than ideal.
As I type I had and idea of a possible remedy and one of the students leaders is following up on it. Please pray that the Lord will do whatever He is intending through this and that our ministry at Edinboro will be advanced through this!
Edit:Cru at Edinboro is not the only organization that lost their active status – 50 out of 120 student organizations did not turn their paperwork in on time. That is more than 40%!
The national media may have begun to forget about the disaster in the Gulf Coast, but we have not. From October 28th through the 31st a group of at least 20 Western PA students and staff will be heading to Pass Christian, MS to help with the relief effort there.

Hey there. This week we got good news. We are going to be able to stay on campus – part time.
Usual CCC protocol is that you get all the way to 100% with support before you’re aboe to work on campus at all; they’re making an exception. We’re going to be working on campus for the most part, but setting aside time to do support stuff. Mondays on the whole will be support days as well as many Fridays and some Saturday mornings.
We’re still in need of about 5% of our basic support, not to mention special gifts and making up for outstanding support that just has not come in.
Please pray that we’d be able to be dilligent to do our job(s) to their fullest!
