Cru offers spiritual guidance, resources and programs tailored to people from all cultures in every walk of life, 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 gave Bill a vision of the total fulfillment of the Great Commission throughout the world. We are only a part of God’s workforce to accomplish that vision, but we are passionate about playing our part and about helping others play theirs. From the beginning, we have sought to be a caring community on mission together.
During Bill Bright’s first talk at a 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 in the ministry.
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. Our mission of winning, building and sending often occurs best in the context of relationships. Even when the initial proclamation comes from outside a community, typically the gospel continues to spread among family members, friends, neighbors and peers. When the woman at the well heard from Jesus, she ran to tell others, “Come and see!” (John 4:29).
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.
There are thousands of opportunities through Cru to be involved in the Great Commission. From summer mission trips for students to a week of helping pack supplies for needy families overseas, Cru is continually looking for new ways to engage people with the gospel.
As we seek to create spiritual movements everywhere, we are also committed to helping you reach your community with the message of God’s love.
Find tools and articles that will equip you as you seek to tell others about Christ.
