Today's young adults, while described as the most unchurched generation in America's history, are not without hope. Millennials stand boldly against hypocrisy, evil, and injustice. They want to be a part of making the world a better place by righting wrongs and meeting needs in the context of deep and meaningful relationships. Cru believes that God is using this generation to make a difference in cities across the globe. We are convinced that as Jesus heals their hearts, their passion will be contagious and His love will go viral. We are committed to helping them to ignite their passion, connect with Jesus, and to live out His purpose in every facet of their lives.
For many, life in the city offers only a bleak existence. The bitter realities of human slavery, homelessness, neglect, and food insecurity plague the lives of countless men, women, and children in cities around the globe. Although none of these issues are easy to solve, the love of Jesus compels us, followers of Jesus and kingdom citizens, to action. Cru is partnering with hundreds of like-minded churches and passionate organizations in an effort to catalyze Gospel transformation and bring light to the darkest places of the city.
Many of the devastating effects of poverty are due to a lack of options. The inner-city ministry of Cru builds partnerships with inner-city churches to help increase their capacity to reach out to the poor with options. We offer products and programs to our partners which address the needs of the poor. We equip these churches to construct developmental programs for children and adults. Everything we do helps our partners pioneer ministries of evangelism and discipleship in the context of compassion.
