We are Ben and Jennifer Seiler, on staff with Cru at Oklahoma State University. We help students take steps of faith to change the world. We believe that God has called us as followers of Christ to have a legacy that is more significant than fame, success or money can bring.
In the world we live in today, we are told value comes from wealth, fame, and success. In addition, distractions from the things that truly matter are present every second. Through growing in our ability to focus, connect to people and multiply our life, we have seen people leave a spiritual legacy that will have a significant influence for years to come.
How often do we feel too busy to balance all that God has called us to? How often do we aimlessly refresh our social media feed? We have seen that when we aren’t focused on what matters, we easily fill our schedule, time and energy with things that prevent us from being a good steward. Focusing on the areas God has called us to lead well is the first step to having spiritual influence.

Relationships are necessary to having influence. Truly understanding that God desires a relationship with you free from performance sets up a foundation for us to connect well in our other relationships in life. From there you can love your family, peers and people different than you well. If we aren’t living in relational connection with these people, we may have influence, but the influence isn’t going to be one that leaves a legacy.

In order to leave a life of spiritual influence, we have to multiply our life. Multiplication consists of evangelism and discipleship. What makes the idea of multiplication unique is the awareness of how valuable passing on what you know is. When we are intentional to live in other people’s lives and help them grow, we will leave a legacy that will have ripple effects for generations to come.
