Cru offers spiritual guidance, resources and programs tailored for people from all cultures in every walk of life through many diverse outreaches, including:
Cru was originally founded as Campus Crusade for Christ in 1951, when Bill and Vonette Bright began the ministry on the UCLA campus. God had given him a vision portraying the total fulfillment of the Great Commission throughout the world. We are only a part of God’s workforce to accomplish that, but we are passionate about our part and how we can help others achieve their parts. From the beginning we have sought to be a caring community as well as a community on mission.
During Bill Bright’s first talk at a Greek sorority, he invited the group of 60 students to enter into a relationship with Christ and 30 became new believers. Within a few months, 250 students were involved.
Our goal is to give everyone an opportunity to know someone who truly follows Jesus.
Cru is committed to helping proclaim the gospel throughout the world. The context of winning, building and sending most often occurs best in relationships. Even when the initial proclamation penetrates from outside a community, typically the gospel continues to spread among family, friends, neighbors and peers. For example, when the woman at the well heard from Jesus, she ran to tell others: “Come and see!”
We want to equip you as you share your faith with those in your community. You can find valuable tools to bring Christ into every area of life.
