We are a caring community passionate about connecting students with Jesus Christ. Our purpose is helping to fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith, and sending them to win and build others. We are committed to the centrality of the cross, the truth of the Word, the power of the Holy Spirit and the global scope of the Great Commission.
When we truly experience the real life found in Christ, it’s like nothing else. Jesus said in John 10:10 “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” Our goal is to give everyone an opportunity to know Christ or know someone who truly follows Jesus; that they would be able to find that abundant life in Him!
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 and with Jesus Christ. We are here to provide real people with a Christ-centered community where these relationships are formed, where real life is found as they grow together to strengthen (or find) real faith in Jesus, as well as share that faith with others!
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
