Partnering to build leaders


2016 YLG16 Audience

Young leaders gather from over 140 countries.


Partnership, encouragement, equipping for ministry…

Cru seeks to make Jesus known throughout the world, partnering with and encouraging any ministry that is seeking to do the same. One such ministry is the Lausanne Movement.

The Lausanne Movement, founded by Billy Graham, mobilizes global evangelical leaders to collaborate for world evangelization. The vision is “the whole church taking the whole gospel to the whole world”. My team at Cru provides financial accounting for this ministry even though it is not a part of Cru.

Recently, two of my teammates were in Jakarta, Indonesia to help with the finances of the Lausanne Movement’s Young Leader’s Gathering (YLG).

This conference occurs once every 10 years. Participants are 25 to 35 years old, must be nominated before they can apply to attend and are mentored for ten years after the conference.

With speakers like Ravi Zacharias, David Platt, Os Guinness and many others, YLG develops and encourages young evangelists around the world.

Participants said,

“Connecting with others allows us to feel that we are not alone.”

“When I came I was tired, but connecting with people reenergized me to go and fulfill my mission.”

“I’m so excited to see how God has brought together His people to fulfill the Great Commission!”

You are part of raising up a new generation of world Christian leaders through Cru and also through other ministries!
