Looking across the table at the young, ambitious women, Allison Hines saw herself in them.
A few years earlier, she, too, was an intern on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. During those 3 months, her zeal for her country and desire to make changes grew and grew.
Most importantly, she realized she needed to be grounded in her relationship with God -- not easy amidst a flood of ideologies and influences.
Eventually, Allison took a full-time job serving a Colorado congressman. A month later, she met Sue Vernalis, a staff member with Christian Embassy, the arm of Cru that reaches out to men and women in government.
"Allison has a real eager heart for the Lord," says Sue. "It's difficult to be a Christian in Washington, D.C., and she stands out."
Sue began to mentor her, and challenged Allison to reach out to the incoming interns. Though she had never before led a Bible study, Allison started a weekly group.
And that's how she found herself in a Starbucks, sitting with 8 female interns.
"No matter where they go or what they do," says Allison, now 23, "their relationship with Christ needs to be central."
It's a foundation Allison is helping these women find amidst the bustle of Capitol Hill.
On Tuesday nights at staff member Nan McCullough’s house, three women from three different generations with three separate faith journeys meet to celebrate their friendship centered around their love for each other and their common faith.
