Engaging the Military Community in Your Midst

The E-Kit:  Engage the Military in Your Midst video seminar is Cru Military’s free, online resource that gives you the tools you need to minister to the military in your area. We are here to build you up and support you as you help fulfill the Great Commission by ministering to the military community. All you need is a willing heart and a little time.

We combine tried and true best practices with testimonies from a number of active duty, veterans, wives of veterans, wounded warriors, and parents that provide real context to the issues facing our military today. You will see that it’s people like you, who have helped them come to Christ and grow spiritually.

The series is composed of eight videos. Throughout the 90-minute seminar are “Take Five” breaks with questions to discuss in your group. The videos are hosted by Maj Jeff Struecker, Chaplain US Army (Ret), Pastor, Author, and Warrior portrayed in the movie “Black Hawk Down” and by LTC Jeff Presnal, US Army Reserve (Ret), President of Armor of God Military Ministry.

This seminar will encourage you to START where you are, USE what you have, and DO what you can to serve the military in your midst.
