Jesse and Bethany Schlender


Hello! Thanks for wanting to learn more about us and our ministry with Cru.

We (Jesse and Bethany) serve with Cru in the Boise metro area, sharing the Gospel with 50,000+ students in the southern Idaho and eastern Oregon region. We are a part of the U.S. Campus Ministry to serve the nations of the world in reaching college students for Christ.

Boise State University, Idaho State, Eastern Oregon University and other colleges in our scope are where many future leaders are now studying. How these students are influenced now will impact the world. In light of this, our mission is that every person on these campuses would have at an opportunity to respond to Jesus Christ.

We are committed to building a campus movement at Boise State and other regional schools where students can encounter Christ and be developed as believers. We desire to equip them so that they live life on a mission, wherever God is taking their story. We are launching spiritual movements that will develop the future spiritual leaders in Idaho and beyond.

That is why we are so excited to be a part of what God is doing in Boise and the surrounding area. We are passionate about sharing Christ with others, building them up in their faith and sending them out to the world.

As a family, we are also grateful to share what God is doing through us in our marriage and as parents. We have been married since 2009, and have worked together with Cru since 2010. We have five children: Emily, Judah, Noah, Luke and Thomas.

Your gift would be a great blessing as we share the Gospel in Boise!
