Fuel Ministries International
Fuel International began in August of 1996 when President and Founder, Dan Crosby, and his wife, Maria, had a vision to see short-term mission trips make a long-term impact in communities in the US and in the nations of the world. The name for Fuel International came through a literal dream that Dan had one evening after asking God to give him the name of this new founded ministry. In the dream, Dan saw a map of the world; and as he looked closely, he noticed that is was a collage of people’s faces from all over the globe that made up each of the continents. As he continued to watch, each of the faces came morphing up off of the page into a lapping flame of fire, and these words began to ring in his head, “Fuel International, fuel for God’s fire to ignite the nations of the world.” Dan then realized the vision for the ministry, that each of us are to be living sacrifices on the altar of God and to be burning embers with holy passion for the peoples of the world and to be God’s fuel for His fire!
It is the desire of Fuel International to be on the cutting edge of missions. Recognizing the need for more strategic short-term trips with long-term impact, Fuel International set out to make a difference. Through our short-term missions training, strategy, mission, and vision, we have mobilized, trained, equipped, and sent out several churches and hundreds of individuals. Through short-term mission teams we planted a church in a 99.9% Muslim community. With the prayer to remain on the cutting edge of missions, God began to show the leadership of Fuel International how things are changing in missions strategies to reach the Priority People Groups of the world.Through this leading, Fuel began to implement the God given vision of Mid-Term missions, the merging together of short and long-term missions to strategically partner together with the national church to reach the priority people groups of the world.
In order to help meet the physical or humanitarian needs of communities, we are also beginning to take schools that want to do humanitarian projects that line up with short-term trips that lead to long-term impact.
