Mike and Staci Elsner


Thank you for partnering with us to give every athlete and staff a chance to say yes to Jesus for the first time and for a lifetime! We labor to see a Christ Follower on every team in the world.

Mike and I are serving on the campus at AIA (Athletes in Action) Sports Complex and Retreat Center in Xenia, Ohio, where AIA Headquarters is located.  We are excited to share Christ with athletes and staff who are on the AIA campus, using the platform of sport to change lives forever.  Mike will also be serving with the AIA Prep Academy where athletes will be living on the campus for a time, growing in their faith, leadership and sport.

Staci will be serving alongside the Executive Director of Catalytic Resources. Their team provides leadership, vision and alignment to Athletes in Action experiences (clinic/camps, training/academies, team building/retreats) and resources (written and digital content created to accelerate an athlete or coach's spiritual journey) to help athletes and coaches learn how to become the Total Athlete (or coach) - Body + Mind + Soul.

Your investment into this ministry is one of such eternal significance. Like many other missionary organizations, Cru has no central funds for paying salaries and ministry expenses. As Cru staff members, we have the responsibility to develop a team of financial supporters who will provide the necessary funds for our outreach.

We would like to invite you to be a part of that team. Would you prayerfully consider joining our team of ministry partners with a contribution of $100 or some significant amount to you in monthly support? All donations made to Cru are tax deductible.

Thank you so much!
