Elijah and Jessica Cole

Both Elijah and Jessica grew up in Christian families in Kentucky. Elijah came to a faith in Jesus at a young age, but as he grew older he wandered away from his faith. After a few years of doing his own thing, he realized that everything outside of God was hopeless and meaningless and rekindled the faith he once had as a child. Over the past several years, Elijah has worked as a businessman and been involved in various ministries. Jessica also gave her life to the Lord at a young age. She has been pursuing Him ever since. After obtaining a degree in Spanish from Eastern Kentucky University, Jessica worked for the Migrant Education Program in Kentucky for 2 1/2 years and also worked as a foreign missionary in several different countries. They both have a heart to see young people reached and transformed into disciples of Jesus. Elijah & Jessica were trained in campus ministry at the University of Kansas from the fall of 2014 to the spring of 2016. In the fall of 2016, their team launched Northstar Campus Ministry at NKU and that is where they currently serve. They have three children; two sons and a daughter.

Julia Olliges

Julia was raised in a loving Christian home and believed in God at a young age. Julia would read the Bible and go to church but still felt like something was missing. When she was seventeen she started making some selfish decisions and became depressed as a result. Julia felt hopeless and wondered if there was a purpose for her life. One night she got on her knees asking for forgiveness and singing aloud to the Lord. At that moment she experienced the presence of God like she never had and began seeking Him with a fresh hunger. After high school Julia attended “YWAM’s” discipleship training school. It was there that Julia was burdened for the lost and felt the call to full time ministry. This is Julia’s 3rd year of campus ministry. She loves talking to people from different cultures and leading the youth into a relationship with Jesus.
