College Students – Summer Missions
Imagine a summer that could change cities, countries and continents around the globe while also forever transforming your life – a summer that propels you into a deeper walk with God and gives you greater confidence in making Him known, a summer that develops your leadership skills and begins friendships you’ll take with you throughout your life.
Summer Missions with Cru bring the hope of Jesus to locations around the world – from your own “backyard” to a different continent. The ministry focus of each trip varies according to location – some trips focus on reaching individuals with the good news of Christ either on college campuses or in beach and resort communities, while others minister to people of specific ethnic or economic backgrounds.
College Students – Study Abroad on Mission
Further Your Education. Further God's Kingdom.
Immersing yourself in another culture while earning credit toward your degree is hard to beat, but what if you could make your semester abroad even more significant? As a college student, you represent a unique missionary force with an incredible opportunity to carry the gospel to the nations. Join us for the adventure of a lifetime and further God’s Kingdom while furthering your education in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East or Oceania!
Feel free to go academically through the study abroad provider or exchange program of your choice and let us guide your missions experience. You can look forward to a great semester walking with Jesus and sharing your faith as you receive ongoing mentoring, engage new friends in spiritual conversations and help launch movements of believers. We guarantee your life will be changed forever!
