Being part of Cru at University of Louisville connects you with the vast network of Cru partnerships around the world and right here in the United States. Our specific Louisville Cru partnership is with the Dominican Republic! We are so excited for what the Lord is doing there and are committed to sending students to proclaim the gospel in “The DR”!
On top of that, Cru is one of the biggest missions organization in the world, with hundreds of global partnerships and movements in over 180 countries! There is an opportunity for everyone to go! Will you go where the Lord calls you?
Reach out to a university of 120,000 students who are very receptive to the Gospel! Our goal is to launch movements in various relational pockets on campus as well as train and disciple the Christian Dominican students. There are currently 2 full-time staff members working at the country’s largest and only public university and the ministry needs our help. The Dominican students respond well to Cru tools such as the Knowing God Personally booklet because it shows how we can have a personal relationship with God instead of lifeless religion. So come with us to see more students be won, built and sent to reach their country for Christ! In the process you will learn greater skills in personal evangelism (especially with friends) and discipleship of new believers to take back to your campus in the United States.
The university students of the Dominican Republic are extremely relational. Much time is spent cultivating relationships and building friendships to open doors to the gospel. Most students are raised Catholic, but very few are practicing. As a result many students “believe” in God, they know of Him, but most have not heard about a relationship with Him.
This partnership is one of the most exciting we have to offer. Central Asia is full of countries in the midst of transition. Formerly part of the Soviet Union, there is a unique combination of new governments, Muslim religion, Russian culture and economic possibility. Though Central Asian countries are no longer part of the Soviet Union, independence has not brought freedom and economic prosperity.
There is a real mix of ethnic groups with most indigenous peoples having a long history of being Muslim. Statistically, less than 0.1% of the population are followers of Christ, which makes this country one of the most unreached countries in the world, yet also one of the most strategic. Imagine if college students in this country came to Christ, were built up in their faith, and then sent out not only to reach their own country, but also the other unreached countries surrounding it that we cannot get into. Not only is this partnership strategic, but also a great place to live and minister.
The city has over 2,500 years of history and beautiful scenery. The people are the kindest and warmest people on the face of the Earth and they are truly in need of opportunities to hear the Gospel and respond to it. Please come to the Central Asia partnership for a summer or for a year and help reach Muslims for Christ!
A unique country in the Middle East (the only Arab state that is not officially Muslim) offers a surprising and important clash of cultures. Lebanon has a long history of religious diversity, with over 30% of the inhabitants identifying themselves as Christians.
With a beautiful location overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, this home of the ancient Phoenicians is a study in contrasts. Many future leaders in the Middle East attend college here at one of the most prestigious universities in the region, while the average person lives on an income that is 11% of the US average.
Serving in Lebanon provides opportunities to influence leaders who will play major roles in the future of the Arab world. Helping to reach college students in Lebanon is very strategic, and there is no better time than now to offer hope in this part of the world. See the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob work in a powerful way in Lebanon!
Dakar, Senegal is the western-most city in Africa. Students from all over Africa come to college in this port city on the Atlantic Ocean. We are excited about the pioneering opportunities we have in Dakar.
95% of the inhabitants in Senegal are Muslim, and most people speak French. The cultural environment is fascinating, mixing traditional culture with modern realities. Dakar is a cultural center in West Africa, and reaching students at this key university (Cheikh Anta Diop) will help advance the gospel in the Sahara belt and beyond. Investing your time in Dakar can help spread the kingdom in Senegal, Africa and beyond.
God designed you to make a difference in the world.
Whether it’s a prayer walk on a college campus, a conversation about Jesus in a coffee shop or a night of worship on a sandy beach, a Stateside Summer Mission with Cru is your opportunity to make your summer extraordinary, while also working to change the lives of others for eternity!
