Josh McDowell Ministry


Josh McDowell Ministry exists to serve others until the whole world hears about Jesus.

As a Cru ministry, we help build multiplying disciples until the whole world knows that the Christian faith is reliable, relational and relevant to their lives.

Together we serve and equip students, parents, leaders and churches through the production of innovative events and cutting-edge ministry resources in the heart languages of people everywhere.

Josh McDowell has been at the forefront of cultural trends and groundbreaking ministry for more than 54 years. He shares the essentials of the Christian faith in everyday language so that people of all ages and stages are prepared for the life of faith and the work of ministry.

Together with our partners, we work in five strategic regions of the world including:

     • Eastern Europe and Russia
     • Asia
     • North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia
     • Latin America
     • North America

This year we have a need of $10,340,384.40 to fulfill our most urgent requests for resources, teaching, training and ministry worldwide.

When you partner with us you are helping people know truth, understand why they believe it and experience it in their relationships by living out their faith. Will you give today?
