When Aaron started college, he expected to grow spiritually by going to church and joining a cool Bible study on campus. Through his involvement with Cru, he discovered that real growth happens through intentional relationships where people knew what was really going on inside of him. He learned how to do the hard work of being open and vulnerable, and began to experience deep relationships, something he’d always wanted!
Aaron’s experience of real relationships went to an even deeper level on a Summer Mission with Cru. If you want to put yourself in an environment that will accelerate your growth in these areas, nothing compares to a Cru Summer Mission:
What about you? Would you take an intentional step towards vulnerability with a safe community of friends? It takes effort and courage, but the rewards in relationships are worth it.
When you head to college, you might discover you hold beliefs about your faith that you haven’t ever examined on your own. When Shelley was in college, one particular guy on her dorm floor bombarded her with hard questions. Instead of throwing out her faith because she couldn’t answer those questions, Shelley used those unexamined beliefs as a launch pad to make her faith her own.
Parties and drinking are pretty common at college. By making the conscious decision to not engage in underage drinking, you will definitely stand out. How will you answer when someone asks you about it?
Having a roommate in college is super different than sharing a room with a sibling at home. You’ll share a relatively small space with a stranger who you know very little about. How can you make it a good experience?
