Cru is a nonprofit organization and has no central funds. Staff members, including the president of Cru, raise support to cover salaries, benefits and expenses. Each staff member has a team of ministry partners who invest into their ministry financially and by praying for him or her. Below is a statement from one Ministry Partner:
“I have been a ministry partner for about four years. It has been a rewarding experience that has caused me to grow spiritually and also taught me to be more giving. It has also allowed me to see how God multiplies the little you have to meet all your needs.
It wasn’t always easy. Every month has not been the same in terms of expenses. At times, I felt like I couldn’t continue due to the increasing financing demands of life. However, when at those times when I felt I couldn’t afford to give anymore, God always reminded me that He would provide all my needs and when I give to Him first, I would surely never lack.
God revealed a lot about me personally through my experience as a ministry partner. There are some flaws we are unaware of until God reveals them to us. God showed me that I had to step up a notch in my giving, not only to Him but to others around me. He reminded me how true contentment in life comes not from how much you have for yourself but how much you sacrifice for the sake of others.
Giving is very rewarding, especially when your giving goes towards a most worthwhile and fulfilling cause. I am grateful for the opportunity I have been given over the past four years to give back to a ministry that has helped in my personal growth and development in the past and continues to do so even now.”
