It was so fun to travel to Fair Oaks, California about a month ago. It is a rare thing to be able to say thank you for 40 years of generous, faithful, and faith-filled giving through Cru which has totaled to more than a million dollars! That is what the community of believers at Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church (FOPC) has done.
Extending their reach through numbers of staff (Lisa and I included), students, and ministry projects, this community of believers has literally circled the globe with their impact. Such intentionality, generosity, and commitment to being about our Father's business is worth celebrating. Well done, Church family.
While visiting friends in Fair Oaks, one friend mentioned that she wished more people at FOPC could be trained to share their faith. That is particularly distinctive of what we do in Cru. Our distance from FOPC—living in Orlando—makes it challenging for us to personally respond to that need.
However, we can help any willing people receive great training via Cru.org. In conjunction with our Global Outreach Day that took place this past Saturday, May 21st, Cru has created videos to equip a person to share their faith. Each video is no more than 90 seconds long. If anyone wants to learn how to talk to a neighbor, a family member, a co-worker, or a friend, it is easier than you think.
Check out these great tools and tell a friend, too: click here for the Cru website, and download God Tools on your phone or tablet for an interactive, spiritual growth-enhancing app that you can use with yourself or a friend.
