$50,000 Matching Challenge DOUBLES Your Gift

#2283732 - Cru Military

Roughly four in ten individuals under 30 identify with no religious affiliation, a proportion nearly equivalent to those who identify as Christians. That is a saddening statistic!

But, we have an exciting opportunity for you to impact the next generation right now.

This is YOUR moment to strengthen the souls of military recruits - And with TWICE the impact!


Our young military generation has a burning desire to protect and serve our country. Still, they desperately need to know the hope of Christ as they enter a new, challenging life in the military.

It only costs approximately $8 for us to reach one recruit with the Gospel message and provide a Spiritually Fit Ready to Serve booklet during basic training. Your gift of $24 will provide three recruits with the life-changing message of Jesus. A gift of $80 is enough to reach 10!

And now, your impact can go even further! Thanks to a generous matching gift challenge, every dollar you give will be doubled, allowing us to reach twice as many recruits with the hope of Christ. This means your gift of $24 will reach six recruits, and your gift of $80 will reach 20!

These Spiritually Fit – Ready to Serve booklets are instrumental in introducing them to Christ. These booklets serve as the curriculum for Sunday religious education classes nationwide at eight recruit training locations.

Cru Military is uniquely positioned to assist Chaplains with leading Sunday morning services and Bible studies for thousands of military recruits eager to learn about Christ, but we need your help to continue!

One young Marine said this:

“I truly believe God has spoken to me over the 14 weeks of boot camp. Every week, I leave SFRS class feeling encouraged. There have been lonely times throughout boot camp, but these classes remind me that the God who spoke the world into motion is on my side, which means that through Him there is nothing I cannot accomplish.”

Hundreds of stories like this are shared each week by recruits who are encouraged, strengthened, and whose lives are transformed by the Gospel message.


Will you commit to reaching as many as you can with your gift today? Remember, every dollar you give will be doubled through the matching gift challenge!
