Sunish "Jake" Abraham was born to missionary parents in India and grew up in the Philippines. Following a few years of work as an engineer after college Jake and his wife Julie joined Cru staff in 2000 and served 7  years in Melbourne, Australia and launched multiple campus ministries.

In 2008 they moved their family to Orlando to serve with the Cru VP team for South and Southeast Asia. Then in 2013, Jake and Julie joined the City ministry of Cru, serving to engage the curious, equip the follower and help people find their place in God's story.

Their current role is to lead the City ministry of Cru, reaching out with the good news of Jesus into audiences ranging from artists to business leaders from the military to immigrants and refugees. Cru City seeks to "reflect Jesus together for the good of the city". Cities represent both a great challenge and an incredible opportunity to grow God's kingdom.
