What is a Cru Gap Year?

A 9-month adventure for recent high school graduates to discover more of who God is and who He has created you to be as you travel the world, experience new cultures, and build lasting friendships.

You will travel to multiple locations around the world, coming alongside local Cru teams and partners to reach teenagers. Lives will be transformed as you develop friendships, share your life and take opportunities to share about a relationship with God.
