Who We Are – Cru at IU
Cru is an interdenominational ministry on campus that is here to help students grow in their walk with the Lord – no matter where they are spiritually. We’re no ordinary club. We’re a network of students and staff on thousands of college campuses in the US and around the world; a global movement for the world’s culturally diverse students. Facilitating spiritual awareness on campus by introducing students to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, providing students opportunities to grow in that relationship, and training them to help reach others is what we major in.
Although we each have different experiences and interests, we all share two things in common: We love to have a good time and hang out with each other, and we are convinced that our personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the most fulfilling thing in the world.
Are you investigating a relationship with God for the first time? Or are you just looking for a place to deepen that relationship? If so, we welcome you to check out the hype for yourself. Maybe you too will discover the enjoyment that comes from the relationship we would love to tell you about…
Who We Are Internationally
When Bill and Vonette Bright first launched Cru as a campus ministry in 1951, the underlying concept was to “win the campus today and change the world tomorrow.” More than 50 years later, the mission remains the same.
Today, the campus ministry of Cru is a network of vibrant, growing movements on 1,029 campuses in the United States and beyond. Proven and diverse outreach strategies expose millions of students to the gospel each year. Over the past five years, more than 37,900 students made a decision to become a Christian.
Cru International is an interdenominational ministry committed to helping take the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations. We cooperate with millions of Christians from churches of many denominations and hundreds of other Christian organizations around the world to help Christians grow in their faith and share the Gospel message with their fellow countrymen.
