This year we have the privilege of serving at our headquarters as part of the Lake Hart Stint Leadership Development program. We are receiving personal and professional development and meeting critical staffing needs to serve our global ministries reaching 191 nations!
We are excited to see how the gospel is expanding through the work that happens at Cru’s world headquarters—also known as “Lake Hart.”
On our first day of work, we toured Lake Hart. We walked through the “Jesus Film” department which is responsible for billions of people hearing the good news of Christ through the translation and distribution of the “Jesus” film.
We passed by the National Campus Office which resources campus ministry (including colleges and high schools) across the globe with new tools and strategies for evangelism and discipleship. It was here that we read a sign above a person’s desk, “Because of what I do today, people are coming to Christ!”
Those on the front lines of the field are better trained, equipped, cared for and made more effective because of the work that happens here.
Another department at Lake Hart develops strategies to spread the gospel on the internet.
In the last three months, the website Everystudent.com was visited by over one million people in closed countries.
Recently, this website helped connect a high school student in Hungary with a staff member there. In the process that student placed his faith in Jesus! He continues to meet with our staff member to study the Bible and grow in his new relationship with Christ.
We are humbled to be a part of this ministry and to help meet critical needs within Cru for the next year. Thank you for being a part of this ministry. Through your partnership we are making a global impact for the gospel!
