I am on staff with an international, interdenominational Christian missions organization called Cru. Cru (formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ) was founded in 1951 by  Bill and Vonette Bright in California. It began as a college ministry and has grown to host 70 other evangelistic and discipleship oriented ministries. The purpose of Cru is to:

Help to fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others; and helping the Body of Christ do evangelism and discipleship.”

My calling

I came to know the Lord through Cru in college and know the Lord will really use my testimony to reach other college students.  In 2011, I left America to do a two-year long internship with Cru in Dakar, Senegal. I got to share the gospel in Senegal and pour into local believers. Senegal is 95% Muslim, but it is a really open country spiritually.

In 2014, I joined Cru staff and am going to be a Campus Missionary in the Detroit Metro area. I am excited to work with American college students as well as international students in America. I have a sweet vision of training this new wave of young people to be able to go out to the world and share Christ wherever they go-an office or India!

We have a vision of reaching every nation, every student, every person with the good news of Jesus Christ. We do that through Winning students to Christ, Building them up in their faith, and Sending them out as lifetime laborers for Christ. We’re more effective as the body and I love to help equip the saints!

How you can help. Co+Mission.

As a full time staff member with Cru, I depend on the consistent financial support of concerned individuals and churches who function as my ministry partners. Your monthly financial partnership or prayer partnership in this ministry is so important. Before I can move to Detroit, I must raise 100% of my financial support. For a detailed reason of Why Cru Staff Members Raise Their Support, click here.

We all play a part in this big, beautiful story of redemption. It really is a partnership with God and what He’s doing in redeeming the nations. A Co+Mission. would you consider joining my team and helping me reach the nations through college students?

If you would like to become a member of my ministry team through monthly financial partnership, please do one of the following:

If you would like to receive my monthly prayer letters, please write to me at Mary.Smith@cru.org.

I appreciate your encouragement, prayers and support as I  strive to make Jesus famous in the hearts of college students.

May Christ be glorified in us and across all the nations.
