Missionary Spotlight ~ Chuck & Lauren Askew, South Carolina

Chuck Askew is the campus minister for Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at Coastal Carolina University. Chuck is originally from Atlanta, Georgia, but became involved with RUF in his time at the University of Florida.

After graduating, Chuck desired to test his gifts for ministry and so he spent 2 years as an intern with RUF at Mississippi State. After those two years, Chuck went to RTS Jackson for seminary. There he met his lovely wife Lauren, originally from Syracuse, New York, who was in the Marriage and Family Therapy program of RTS. After graduating in 2005, Chuck and Lauren moved to Conway, South Carolina to start the RUF at Coastal Carolina University.

Coastal Carolina University is a public university in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area. Coastal has 8,000 students, drawing heavily from the Northeastern states. You are just as likely to meet someone from New York, Pennsylvania or Ohio as you are to meet a native of South Carolina on Coastal's campus.

During the first year of the Askew's ministry at CCU, God blessed them with their first son, Charlie, who is now 21 months old. This past April, the Lord blessed the Askew family with the birth of a daughter, Eleanor Katherine Askew.

Please pray for:
*Freshmen Outreach this fall: Pray that God would connect new students to the ministry of RUF.

*Developing leaders: Pray that God would use RUF to equip and encourage students to reach out to their friends and classmates.

*An office near campus: Pray that God would provide an office at or near the campus for Chuck to be able to have a place to prepare for Bible studies in between student meetings.
