CRU+ – Zach and Kylie Hanje


Zach and Kylie Hanje

Zach and Kiley Hanje serve as staff missionaries with Cru+ in Rochester, NY seeking to reach college students  with the hope and message of the gospel. Through Bible studies, discipleship, evangelism and outreach, they are trusting God to turn lost students into Christ-centered laborers from one of the most diverse and influential cities in the world.

Zach grew up in Noblesville, and Kiley in Wabash. Both were believers from a young age but learned important truths about God and the gospel from their time at Ball State University, where they served as student leaders in Ball State’s Cru ministry. It was there they learned of their calling and desire to serve God for a lifetime by investing in college students. Zach and Kiley married in 2014 and welcomed their first, Silas Owen, into the world in March of 2016.  They are expecting their second son in February 2018.

Zach and Kiley can be reached at:  Campus Field Staff, New York City, 317.496.6424
