Matt and Anna Shenk have been missionaries with CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) for many years now and GBPC has been supporting their ministry work for several years. Matt and Anna ministered in NYC for several years, but were recently relocated to share their gifts and talents with the people in the city of Richmond. They are currently Directors with Cru City Leadership Networks and Conveners, with the majority of their time spent on redeveloping the BlessRVA organization, as this is the primary organization in Richmond focused on accelerating church collaboration in the city. Matt says: “BlessRVA has a long history of bringing people together across lines of race, class, geography and denomination, but they’ve never had full-time staff to help them become a true gospel movement – a united, sustainable effort by churches and leaders to transform their city by meeting critical needs and sharing the love and message of Christ.”he majority of Matt and Anna’s work is focused on three key areas: relationship building and networking, vision casting, and building organizational capacity for BlessRVA. GBPC is so excited to continue to partner with Matt and Anna and the CRU organization, as they work to bring the gospel message to the whole city of Richmond to make lasting changes in the lives of the people.
