Matthew and Amanda Meier


Thank you for considering partnering with Amanda and I as we seek to give every student an opportunity to know and respond to the hope of Jesus Christ. We have served with Cru in Indianapolis for the past 4 years and will be transitioning to work in the city of Berlin, Germany on several campuses there where there are around 200,000 university students from all over the world.

Our desire is to know Jesus and to make him known on campus, in our city, and to the world.  When we look on the campuses in the U.S. and around the world, our hearts break because we see how pivotal the college years are, and how students are trying to fill themselves up with things that will never satisfy.  We believe that while students will be sent out as leaders in every sphere of society - entrepreneurs, doctors, lawyers, accountants, graphic designers—far too many will go out and live for things that ultimately don't matter.  We were meant for more.  We were designed for a relationship with God, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We each had different journeys in deciding to join Cru staff, but the common thread is that we were both challenged by Paul's words in Philippians: “I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.” We’re excited to build into students in the way we’ve each been built into by other mentors and friends.

Your partnership makes a difference in reaching others for Christ.  Like many other missionary organizations, Cru has no central funds for paying salaries and ministry expenses.  As Cru staff members, we are responsible for developing a team of financial partners who will provide the necessary funds for our ministry.

Thank you for your consideration to be a part of that team. All donations made to Cru are tax deductible.  Just click on the "give a gift" button on this page to get started!

Another vital way you can help is by introducing us to people in your life who are passionate about making a difference for Christ and who would be encouraged to hear about our ministry.  Send us an email at to help us out in that way.  Thanks so much!
