Our vision in Cru is launching movements everywhere until everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus.
It’s a big picture goal of what we are trusting God to do through our movements. But what does this practically look like as we lead our movements today?
The steps to reach our vision are prayer, win, build, and send. We call this our Cru DNA. Each part of our DNA plays a unique role in the development of a movement culture and vision for building a spiritual movement.

Wouldn’t it be great if we all took steps of faith, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to live out this Cru DNA every week of the school year? What might God do in and through us?
How do we know if we are being successful in leading our movement? Here are some things to consider.
There are times of the year in which students have more time available and others when exams seep into every minute of their schedule. Here are some rhythms of the school year, and Cru ministry, that you will want to be aware of.
