John Stokes who now serves with FamilyLife, a ministry of Cru, said that he was about 10 years away from retiring from his management position when God moved him in a new direction.
"God was calling me right now – not 10 years from now," John says. "If I push back and wait, who knows what is going to happen tomorrow or the next day?" Read John's story.
Roger and Maggie Bruehl served with Cru for five years before leaving to take over a family business.
Then, five years later, Roger returned to work with Cru – giving up running his father’s company that was grossing $15 million a year.
“I’m willing to put up with the hassles I’m going through for eternal things,” Roger told his wife, Maggie, “but I’m not willing to go through the hassles just to make more money.”
Tom and Julie Meiner were involved with the annual mission conference at their church, but they never wanted to be full-time missionaries.
“But over the period of time, God started working on our hearts,” Tom says. “Maybe what about us? Should we be involved?”
Sometime later, a coworker asked Tom a hypothetical question:
“What would you do if you won the lottery? Would you quit your job?”
“Yes,” Tom said. “If I were to win the lottery, I would quit my job and go into mission work.”
“Right then, God convicted me,” Tom says.
He sensed God was saying to him, “Why won’t you trust Me to provide those finances now?”
About six months later, Tom and Julie visited the Cru headquarters in Orlando and met with employees from Jesus Film Project®.
This was the point they determined that God was leading them to serve with Jesus Film Project. They moved to Florida in 1997.
