Executive Director, U.S. Campus Ministry
Mark Gauthier has served with Cru since 1986, beginning as a staff member for Campus Crusade at Harvard University. In 1991, Mark's burden for college students motivated him to extend his ministry to include students throughout the Boston metro area. In just five years, he led a team to establish a ministry presence on 27 Boston campuses.
In 1996, Gauthier joined the U.S. Campus Ministry leadership team and soon moved into his current role as Executive Director of U.S. Campus Ministry.
"College is a critical moment in students' lives,” says Mark. “College can be either a spiritual greenhouse or a spiritual graveyard. It's a place where a student's faith blossoms or it dies."
Mark is a graduate of Colorado State University with a degree in Industrial Technology. He and his wife, Kristi, live in Orlando, Fla., with their 3 children, Abby, Ben and Will.
