It’s All About Relationships
Posted in: Chaplains, Community, Engaging the Military
“It’s all about relationships!”
You’ve probably heard that quote before. But that statement has great meaning as Cru Military moves forward with a laser focus toward gospel-oriented ministry to those who have served, or are serving, and their families.
The spiritual needs have never been greater as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission through our Win-Build-Send strategy to produce multiplying military disciples around the world. The key to that effort, at every military base and installation, are the Chaplains. They are the “spiritual gatekeepers”. Our staff and volunteers serve at their pleasure and only at their invitation. And once we receive the invitation to minister on base, we serve under their leadership and are accountable to them.
Our experience with Chaplains has been extraordinarily positive! Trust and confidence is mutual between us. These servant leaders see us as an extension of their local team and consider us ministry force multipliers. Together, we are advancing the gospel and impacting military communities for Christ.
Today, these Chaplain/Cru Military partnerships exist at 26 installations and bases around the country. Similar relationships exist with the militaries of 30 nations around the world. Be in prayer that God will bless the plans for new ministry locations.
