US Mission Network

Cru is pleased to partner with the U.S. Mission Network, a network dedicated to helping YMCA's share the message of Jesus with the members and communites they serve.

It's pretty easy to share that message. It's a matter of talking about what Jesus is doing in your life and the hope that He offers everything.

Just remember - everyone is on a spiritual journey. God is already at work in the lives of your members, friends, and neighbors, and God longs to use your willingness to walk alongside them.

Ready? Let's explore 4 basic steps to sharing your faith.
