Eli and Karen Perez


We joined Cru in 1988 and worked as campus staff; first at Texas A&M University and then SMU. From 1999 to 2018, we served at FamilyLife with the Live Events team, Legal Administration team and the Content Development team. In 2018, we joined the JESUS Film Project. The JESUS Film Project gives people the opportunity to have a face-to-face encounter with Jesus, no matter where they are in the world. 

To gain a greater glimpse of our ministry you can go to www.JesusFilm.org. The JESUS film (based on the Gospel of Luke) has been translated into more than 1800 languages and has had more than eight billion views since 1979. More than 500 million people around the world have placed their faith in Jesus Christ after seeing the movie. 

"The JESUS film is one of the most powerful tools God has given us to proclaim the gospel today." -- Billy Graham

Karen and I work with the development team as regional representatives. We connect people and resources with outreaches and strategic projects that advance the good news of Jesus Christ worldwide; and help believers grow in the faith. We get direct opportunities to tell others about Jesus and to strengthen believers in the faith (2 Peter 3:18). 

Our partners make it possible for us to do this full-time. We invite you to join us as a ministry partner by praying and investing generous monthly contributions. Can we count on you to join our team?
