How To Join Us...

We need your help!  As missionaries with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) and FamilyLife we depend on God to lead us to those who share the vision of changing society by restoring families to the values that make them strong.  Neither Cru nor FamilyLife generates central funds to pay our salary.  We rely completely on the financial support of families like yours for our living and ministry expenses, allowing us to accomplish together what neither of us could do alone.


By providing support to our family, you become a vital part of the team.  Our partners send their contributions to our individual Cru staff account.  Cru in turn pays our salary, ministry expenses, and benefits from that account.


As FamilyLife staff members our commitment to our ministry partners includes:

  • Faithfully investing our lives and talents fully for Jesus Christ.
  • Keeping you informed about our ministry through our monthly newsletter and our website.
  • Being strictly accountable for the use of funds within the policies of Cru and the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
  • Praying for you and the needs of your family and asking the Lord to richly bless you for your faithful partnership with us (Luke 6:38).


We have dedicated our lives to reaching families for Christ and to strengthening them with God's principles.


Please prayerfully consider financially supporting our ministry to families!


There are several ways your family can give to our ministry with FamilyLife and become involved by helping us meet our needs and goals.  First of all we need prayer.  Please pray that all we do will further the mission of reaching couples and families for Christ.  We also need regular financial support.


  • Many of our  Ministry Partners prefer to start giving Online immediately by Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) from their checking account, debit card, or credit card.  You will be directed to our giving page on Cru's secure website.
  • If you prefer to give by Check or mail in your Electronic Fund Transfer you can print the appropriate form, fill it out, and mail it to us at the address on the form.
