Luke & Jamie Ulrich
After being the Children's Pastors at Elston for several years, God has called us, Luke and Jamie, to take the Gospel of Christ and the hope of His saving grace to a people group in Malawi, Africa that is currently unreached (does not have a significant movement of Christ). He has asked us to use our gifts to work with and disciple children, raising up a hope-filled generation devoted to Christ and actively sharing their faith and hope with others. Though we alone are not able to accomplish this task, we know that through the partnership of individuals, families, and church bodies, Christ will work through all of us together to accomplish His task.
To keep up with what is going on with us please feel free to see us here.
Dennis & Julie Runner
God has led our family to Purdue University to minister to the International student population through the North American Mission Board as self-funded Mission Service Corps missionaries. We came from Charlotte, North Carolina in 2011. We began International Campus Ministry to partner along side Purdue Collegiate Ministry (American student group). Our primary group is the undergraduate International students, however, our group continues to become diverse with International graduate students and visiting scholars. Purdue has the 3rd largest International student population in the U.S. Our commission and calling is to make disciples and mobilize the Church to reach these students.
Ben & Nettie Beck
We have two daughters, Michaela and Breanna. We serve as a family as missionaries with the North American Mission Board, leading the Purdue Collegiate Ministry (PCM) for the past 12 years. The PCM is a body of students striving together to glorify God and share His love through relationships and service.
We enjoy working together to reach college students for Christ. Statistics show that 70% of people between the ages of 18-24 walk away from church and only 30% ever return. Our vision is to equip students to be fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
We raise our support from churches and individuals through Mission Service Corps. You can make a difference for Christ at Purdue and around the world by partnering with us, to reach the lost for Christ and disciple young Christians to make their faith their own.

Nick & Amanda Dunn
Hi! We are Nick and Amanda Dunn and we have 2 daughters; Ramiah and Aliza. We are missionaries in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Our state-side organization is called Christian Missionary Fellowship and we partner with 2 local NGO's: Strong Hearts and Ellilta Women at Risk. Through SH’s we work with a home-care hospice program reaching out to those that are terminally ill and in need of a saving relationship with Christ. Through EWAR we reach out to at-risk women via Hareg House. HH is a daycenter that serves to help those who find themselves in prostitution due to social and economic factors.
We are local to Indiana and lived in Lafayette for 5 years prior to leaving for the field. We could sense God calling us to serve internationally as individuals and soon after we married, we felt Him confirm that calling. If you would like to know more about us, our story, or our ministry, our how to partner with us, please email, or check out our blog. If you are interested in giving please visit here.
