As Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) staff members we have the same responsibility as other missionaries do which is to develop a team of partners.  These partners provide the crucial prayer and financial support for an effective, God-honoring ministry.  God works through this team to provide our needs for everything from spiritual strength and wisdom, to our salaries and ministry-related expenses.

If God moves your heart to be a part of our ministry with Athletes in Action, we would be so grateful.  If your desire is a financial commitment, would you prayerfully consider giving $100, or some other amount each month?
If you have questions about the ministry and how you can be involved in it, we would love to talk with you.  Please do not hesitate to contact us.

All contributions are income tax deductible.
