Faithful partner in the Great Commission, 40 years ago Crusade for Christ was established. From humble beginnings it has grown into a mission that has and is still touching many lives in Southern Africa. Its beginnings were marked by Evangelistic campaigns or crusades where many lives were changed, resulting in churches being planted. Soon, however, the need arose to train leaders for these planted churches, which later also included the Conference and Retreat Centre as well. Indeed, Crusade for Christ grew into a “family of ministries”.
