World Change
Expanding the Kingdom of God
The Vision of Cru is

to see a world where
everyone knows someone
who truly follows Jesus.
The Situation of the World

Violence, hunger and
poverty define much of
the world’s experience.
Spiritually empty, people
everywhere are searching
for meaning and purpose.
God sent us to touch lives
in Japan with good news
We lived in Japan for 23 years
Among the crowds and amidst the beauty

120 Million
People
Less than
1% Christian
God Used Us to Share the Gospel and
Disciple Japanese

Students on campus, women’s groups,
young leaders, pastors, staff
God Used Us to Partner with Churches
to Introduce Japanese to Jesus
Japanese Jesus Film tools.
Projects distributing the tools
with local churches in Japan’s
country-side and cities.
Now We Are Sending Cru staff to the
World from the Orlando, Florida HQ
Steve Leads the Sending Team
Recruits new
missionaries
Evaluates potential
Prepares and places
Coordinates with the
field leaders

We put 50 to 70 new missionaries
on international fields each year
Called to Help Reach the World
Ukraine, Germany, South Africa, Mexico, Middle East, UK, Haiti, Philippines, Thailand, more.
We Invite You to Become a Partner

Your partnership will help reach people
for Christ!
Partners pray for and fund individual
missionaries with Cru.
Giving to God through Cru
• Cru has no central funds for paying
salaries and ministry expenses.
• Like many other mission organizations,
Cru depends upon the consistent
financial support of concerned
individuals and churches.
• These contributions are
used to fund the ministries
of our staff members.
We Must Find a Team of Partners
• Currently we need 12 new
partners who can give
$100 monthly or some
other amount to support
our ministry.
• As soon as this team is
complete, we can turn our
full attention back to
sending laborers who will
help reach the world for
Christ.
Our Commitment to our Partners
• To work diligently to touch
the lives of people for
Jesus Christ.
• To regularly let you know
how God is blessing the
ministry through
newsletters and email.
• To share prayer concerns
with one another.
Would you make a monthly partnership
commitment of $100 or some other amount?
There’s Another Way You Could Help

Introduce us to friends
at church, neighbors,
family, co-workers, and
your small groups.
This will help us grow
our team faster and
return to full time
ministry sooner.
Thanks for Your Partnership
Helping us send and care for US
missionaries with Cru

Thanks for your prayers for our family!
