Have You Ever Wondered, “Why Me?”


The rescued become rescuers.

The Bible makes an astounding truth clear from beginning to end. We are God’s messengers, commissioned with carrying the gospel throughout the whole world (Psalm 67; 2 Corinthians 5:18-20; Matthew 28:18-20).

But how often do we hesitate to tell others about Him, especially those who are different from us? How often are we unsure how or where we can make Him known?

What if we truly grasped that part of God’s design in rescuing us is to make us rescuers too—that the gospel came to us so that it could then go to someone else?

“You and I both know Jesus because someone who knew Him was brave enough to tell us.”

On campuses and in cultures around the globe, students are coming to know Jesus. Many are then boldly telling others about Him—multiplying the blessing of salvation to the hurting people around them.

Wherever you are, you can be part of this great move of God, too.

Maybe you have a passion for seeing university students come to know Christ. Maybe you enjoy conversations with other professionals in your city, or you want to build relationships with the people who share your backyard. You might love the adventure of exploring the world and observing firsthand the need for the gospel overseas. Or maybe you’re unsure of where to begin, but you know you have a heart for making Jesus known.

The opportunities below can propel you into God’s great rescue operation.
