Valor is the ROTC cadet and midshipman ministry of Cru. Valor movements benefit from being under the local campus ministry leadership, with additional coaching and resources provided by Cru Military. Valor works in partnership with Officers’ Christian Fellowship to resource and equip Christ-centered, spiritually fit officers for our U.S. military equipping them to win, build and send fellow servicemen.
MILITARY CAMPUS MINISTRY
It is the vision of Military Campus Ministry to reach our future military leaders for Christ at their initial entry points at our U.S. service academies and the more than 270 Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) college campuses. We help them grow in their faith and help them become disciple makers around the world at their future duty assignments.
Along with other divisions of Cru Military, our focus is to help reach the world through the military of the world; to help military men and women and their families in all nations become followers of Jesus Christ.
Military Ministry headquarters is located in Newport News, VA amid the largest concentration of military bases and headquarters in the United States.
SIX STEPS TO LAUNCH A VALOR MOVEMENT
Pray . Invest time in prayer with like-minded friends, asking God to guide you each step of the way. Remember to talk to God about people before you talk to people about God.
Connect with your Valor staff coach . They’ll information about reaching your unit for Christ. If Cru staff members are on campus, you will also want to initiate with touch with them.
Communicate with your ROTC cadre (faculty) . Let them know: What Valor is and what we offer them. Publicize. By using Cadet & Midshipman Survival Kits (CMSKs) and posters.
Gather interested students together . Start weekly discipleship groups and begin forming the core leadership group.
Involve further. Show students how to communicate their faith in Christ to others. Help them make appointments to talk with their friends about Christ.
