We are a student organization that exists for anyone to explore who Jesus Christ is and begin to experience His promise of a fully satisfied life with Him. We are a movement engaging with our campus in honest dialogue about life’s questions, real answers, and what it means for our daily lives. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey – skeptical about organized religion, a committed Christian, or a member of another religion – you are welcome at Cru.
When we truly experience the real life found in Christ, it’s like nothing else. We know “we are more broken than we could ever imagine, and at the same time more loved and accepted than we could ever dream”*, and Cru is full of real life stories of this challenging but ultimately joyful process. This is our desire for every U of M student – to be able to say that they have found real life in Christ.
Personal, Authentic, Grace-filled, Spirit-filled Community.
Cru exists within the context of the Christian community at U of M as a place for authentic, deep, life-changing relationships with people & with Jesus Christ. We like to think we’re like that restaurant only the locals know about: personal (where everybody knows your name–or tries to!), authentic, fun… and unique.
Cru (the name of Campus Crusade for Christ in the U.S.) is an Interdenominational Christian movement committed to helping people know God in Jesus Christ, grow in their relationship with Him, and make an impact on our world for Christ with a presence on 3500 campuses and in 180+ countries.
Cru has existed on the U of M Campus since the late 1960s. Over the last 40+ years, God has changed many lives through this ministry and set many free from the lies, wounds, or addictions that held them captive.
We believe that God has revealed himself to us through his Word, the Bible, which allows us to know who he is and what he desires of us. We also believe that Jesus Christ is God who came to earth as a man to sacrifice himself that we might live with him forever.
Though we’re an on-campus movement, we attend many different multi-generational (people of all ages) churches immersed here in the Ann Arbor community.Find a Local Church
