We thank you so much for the vital role you play - or can play - in helping to change lives for Jesus for eternity through us.
With 27 years of ministry experience with Cru, we're more passionately committed than ever to employ our God-given gifts and abilities to help fulfill God's Great Commission: Opportunities to collaborate with the Body of Christ, connecting others to opportunities, lead, coach, teach and speak messages and the gospel of Jesus Christ abound. In fact, how can we serve you, your men's group, church or retreat? While we press after many large and lofty goals, we aim to never lose sight of helping to touch a life or lives God brings our way (neighbors, friends, family, random folk). Email firstname.lastname@example.org if we can consider serving you in any way.
