Connecting Through Gloo
Posted in: Cru Military Connection
Challenges to staying connected
Military members and their families face many unique challenges, particularly as they seek to learn about and follow Jesus Christ. The military is a highly transient community and though they may have been connected to a loving Christian community at one location, often years go by before they may experience similar opportunities.
It is not uncommon for a service member to put their faith in Jesus Christ, or renew their commitment to their marriage, or even take initial steps in recovering from the physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds of war … only to transition to a new duty station or assignment within weeks or months of a personal growth experience. This can leave many feeling alone on their journey.
New Ways To Stay Connected
The Connection Initiative of Cru Military has provided a mobile app, powered by Gloo, to help military members connect to people who are dedicated to loving them and helping them grow in their faith. Gloo has strong discipleship content for the military member to get established in their faith – and the means to help them help others grow as well.
Gloo not only has great content, but also spaces where the user can write privately, as in a journal, or spaces they can share with one or more people. In these group spaces, members can interact together over the things they are learning in the programs.
The Gloo app can be downloaded on mobile devices. Users can also sign in through their desktop web browsers.
