(formerly Campus Crusade for Christ Australia)
Power to Change exists to help fulfill the Great Commission in Australia and beyond in our generation. The Lord Jesus said "I have been given all authority in heaven and earth. Therefore, go and make disciples in all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and then teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you; and be sure of this - that I am with you always, even to the end of the world." (Matthew 28:18-20, Living Bible )
Power to Change is part of the Cru Network, which started om 1951 under the name of Campus Crusade for Christ. The Cru network has grown into an international movement of over 19,000 full-time staff and 200,000 part-time staff and volunteers in over 172 countries on earth who are exposing people to Jesus Christ, winning them to faith in Christ, building them in their faith, training them for ministry and then sending them out to help share the wonderful news of Christ with others in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Power to Change was established in Australia in 1967. We have around 150 full-time workers in four states (NSW, QLD, VIC and WA) and ongoing work in ACT and SA. We are non-denominational and our workers and volunteers go to many different churches around Australia. Our Statement of Faith can be found here.
In Australia, we work with university students, high school students, churches, families and film to connect people to Jesus and each other. We send regular mission teams to a number of Asian countries to demonstrate the love of Christ through aid and community development. We also have long-term partnerships in four other countries with a focus on university students.
Our Headquarters is in Melbourne but we also have offices in Sydney and Brisbane.
We have one purpose – To help fulfil the Great Commission in Australia and beyond.
We have one process – connect, build and send multiplying disciples.
We have four major priorities – students, churches, leaders and digital.
Our Values -
- Bold Faith (we trust God for what only He can do)
- Character Growth (we model our lives on Jesus)
- Fruitfulness (we go after effectiveness)
- Interdependent Community (we thrive together, not apart)
