Make a lasting impact.

College students are making decisions that will change the course of the rest of their lives.  It is during these short years that many of them will choose who to marry, their career path, and what they will believe about God.  It is a confusing time.  Your giving allows us to be there for these students.  Acting as spiritual guides and life coaches, we come alongside students on their spiritual journey and help guide them to a personal relationship with Jesus.


Lifelines is the outdoor and experiential learning arm of Cru, one of the world’s largest mission organizations.  Cru has no central funds, so like many missionaries, we must raise support for our living and ministry expenses through church partners and individuals.  We are blessed by the many families and churches who have supported us, many of which have partnered with us financially and prayerfully since we first joined staff.

Many people choose to give on a monthly basis, which helps us count on an ongoing income.  Others prefer to give annually, quarterly, or as a one time gift.  We are grateful for every gift, every bit of which makes this ministry possible.  Not only do these contributions provide for our livelihood and care for our family, they also provide resources for ministry, from photocopies to white water rafts.  Special gifts and year end donations help cover the costs of annual conferences, spring break expeditions, and the summer projects we lead.

If you would like to give in support of our ministry, you can do so here, or use the link to the right “How to Give.” Both will take you to Cru’s secure giving site so that you can choose to give online, set up a monthly banking EFT, or get information on where to mail a check.  We thank you for your desire to reach college students with the grace and truth of Jesus Christ, and for your faith in God’s work through us.  If you would like to contact us with questions, or to receive our monthly email or paper newsletters, please email us at

If you would like to support the ministry of Lifelines itself, providing resources to fund student scholarships, outdoor trips, gear maintenance and replacement, ongoing outdoor certification for Lifelines staff, and office expenses, you can do so on our Lifelines Ministry page.  Thank you for your interest in joining the effort to spread the love and hope of Jesus Christ to our future world leaders.
