About Us

Roger grew up in Central Illinois, coming to know Christ at an early age. He went to Wheaton College where he came into contact with Campus Crusade for Christ. Impressed with the desire to share his faith, he transferred to Illinois State University in 1968.

Maggie grew up in Chicago. She also came to know Christ at a young age and was involved with Campus Crusade for Christ at Illinois State University, where she met Roger after he transferred. They were married in 1969 and joining staff in 1970.

Together they served at the University of Texas in Arlington and Southern Illinois University. Roger’s gift of administration became evident. He served as Area Administrator for Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota/Upper Michigan and Associate US National Administer.

In 1976, the Lord led Roger into business, heading up the family business, Glass Speciality, with 14 offices and franchises in 12 states. The Lord led them back into ministry in 1980 where Roger eventually had opportunity to lead all the CCC ministries in the US except for Campus. In 1995, he did special projects for the President including several major administrative roles. 2002, he became VP of Global Operations.

In the meantime, Roger and Maggie raised 4 children. Maggie developed writing skills, publishing articles, poems, co-authoring Leading a Child to Independenc and the script for Tunekids (children’s musical). As the children grew, she took on more CCC responsibilities, including the development of Global Human Resources.

Today, we are both active in ministry. Roger is full-time as the director of Operational Advisory Services (US) while Maggie is Staff Emeritus (semi-retired) working with the Office of the President facilitating projects. Maggie continues to battle what the medical community considers an incurable cancer (multiple myeloma).

We are humbled and thrilled with the opportunity to serve the Lord wherever he leads and we praise Him for each day He allows us to serve Him. We know that we would not be here except for the grace of God in our lives and for the hundreds who have partnered with us in ministry over the years. As you look at our site, we invite you to praise Him with us for all He has done!

    Magie,
    I am sorry to learn that you struggle with cancer but I see that you have been given His strength to keep going! You grew up at Des Plaines Bible Church, correct?, as did I. I believe you were the younger sister of Beverly, who was more my age. I have forgotten your maiden name. Jot me a note when you have a minute and let me know if my memory serves my correctly. If not, it won’t be the first time!

    Have a great day!

    For some reason, the hands in this photo speak to me. I love that so many of you were reaching toward others and holding on. Apparently, the Bruehls know how to stay connected.
