As a commuter student at the University of Houston, Tien didn’t have many friends when she started college. But through some people she knew from high school, she heard about Chi Alpha. Her life was dramatically changed as, for the first time, the love of Jesus was demonstrated to her. Through those relationships, she soon found Jesus and gave her life to Him.

During her time in college, Tien had the great privilege of discipling young women and seeing many come to Christ. During her junior year, she realized that campus ministry was something the Lord was leading her to do for the rest of her life. The challenges of support raising loomed large as most of her Vietnamese family did not support her financially.

This past year Tien received anchor level support from the Minority Mobilization Fund (MMF) as an intern at the University of Houston. Today, you can find her leading her campus worship team, resourcing student leaders, and creatively promoting Chi Alpha on her campus.

Tien sees herself in full-time ministry for the rest of her life. Experiencing first-hand the strategic value of university missions, she can’t imagine doing anything else. She credits the MMF in helping her make the transition into a lifetime of missions.

Thank you for helping the next generation of campus missionaries get on the field through giving to the MMF. We’re already seeing great fruit through your amazing and faithful generosity!
