Vision and Partnership

Charleston, SC: A Global City  Almost 800,000 people from all over the world now call Charleston (Tri-County area: Berkeley, Charleston, Dorchester) home.  Charleston is growing at a rate of three times the national average and was named the number one moving destination in the U.S. according to

No longer is Charleston the quaint hidden gem of southern hospitality.  While hospitality still rings true, it is now so much more.  More business, more people, more diversity…more opportunity to share Christ with those who show up.  We are here, in this now global city partnering to make Jesus known, multiply the church and serve the city.

As staff members with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) since 2004, we have seen God transform lives of all ages with His love and grace.

Our vision is that every man, woman and child knows the gospel and experiences the love of Jesus through vital, multiplying communities. 

Our strategy to reach Charleston (residents, students and visitors) has four emphasis:

  1. Connect – we connect people to Jesus through meaningful, conversational evangelism that is wise, gracious, open and clear.
  2. Develop – we equip missional leaders in evangelism, discipleship and leadership development.
  3. Multiply – we support and initiate missional community and church multiplication.
  4. Partner – we partner for Kingdom impact as we pursue our vision.

You can help reach Charleston by becoming one of our financial and prayer partners.  Cru has no central funds.  Each staff member gets to develop a team of prayer and financial partners so that we can spend our full attention on the mission.  Your partnership makes the difference for us and for the people we serve.  

Would you pray about partnering with us in reaching Charleston for Christ?  This will help us continue to put the gospel in arms reach of these influential people.

Giving online is really easy.  Once you clickGive“, you can choose how much you’d like to give and how frequently.  You’ll enter your contact info and choose the method (either electronically through your bank or with a credit card).  Your gift is 100% tax deductible.

As a team, we can help reach Charleston for Jesus!  It would be an honor to have you join with us as a partner.  Thank you for praying about this opportunity.
