Preview Weekend

Operations in Cru

With tens of thousands of missionaries seeking to win people to Christ, build them up in their faith, and send them to do the same (all in the power of the Holy Spirit), Cru is uniquely positioned to develop entry-level personnel professionally and spiritually as they work on projects designed to send the gospel to the nations.

Preview Weekend is designed for college upperclassmen and recent graduates interested in using their professional skills in ministry. 

Investigate some of our ministries, locations, and opportunities on this website.
