Unto is the humanitarian aid ministry of Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ). Unto specializes in going to tough places where most traditional aid agencies do not go. We work primarily in undeveloped or underdeveloped countries where basic necessities are scarce or disasters create a crisis that local and national governments do not have the resources to adequately address. For 30 years, we have provided humanitarian assistance in partnership with Cru missionaries in 190+ countries, fueling the discipleship process and church planting strategy of local partners worldwide. By enhancing the ministry of Cru partners with humanitarian assistance and coaching, Unto helps provide them with access to people groups who might otherwise be unreachable. We also help our partners build credibility in the eyes of governments and authorities. In many cases, humanitarian aid is the main reason ministry is allowed to continue. Because we work in partnership with native Cru staff members who live and work in the places we serve, ministry work continues long after Unto staff members return home.
Sometime in 2007, a friend invited us to a packing event at the Unto (then called Global Aid Network/GAiN) Logistics Center in Mount Joy, PA. We went as a family and were immediately impressed with the operation and the impact they were having around the world. Kelly and our children began going to more packing events, working with various church, school, and college groups and individuals that came to help sort and pack aid. It was a great blessing to be able to involve our children in the ministry. Over the years, Jeff began to see areas where his various trade skills could be used for the ministry. We began to pursue full-time ministry at the Logistics Center (warehouse).
Because of the prayer and financial partnership of many friends, we are now able to begin serving with Unto on a part-time basis. We continue to share about our ministry and build our team of partners with the goal of full-time ministry at the Logistics Center as well as with the disaster response team.
At this time, there are three ways you can help us directly:
*Pray for us!
*Partner with us financially (monthly, quarterly, annually...)
*Help us meet others who might be excited to hear about the work of Unto and how they can be a part of it.
