Cru was founded in 1951 at UCLA by Bill and Vonette Bright. There are currently about 60 ministries under the umbrella of Cru.
The Campus Ministry is one of them—that’s us. Since the beginning, God has called Cru to help fulfill the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) in this generation by winning, building and sending.
Turn lost students into Christ-centered laborers. (Matt. 28:18–20; Matt. 9:36–38)
This is what our mission means:
We know that apart from Christ we can do nothing. So all the above is fruitless if we do not depend on the Lord to work in and through us.
1. The Holy Spirit is the One who glorifies Christ. When we placed our trust in Christ as Savior and Lord, Christ enters the lives of believers by His Holy Spirit. Jesus said many things about Him:
2. Prayer. God longs for every person to know Him. He wants us to depend on Him. One of the best ways to demonstrate our dependence and faith is simply by talking with the Lord about what is on our hearts, minds and what we long for Him to do on the campus.
Remember, even if only a few of you are praying together, Jesus is there with you (Matt. 18:20)
Every student. We want to link arms with Christian students, volunteers and churches to help give every student an opportunity to say “Yes!” to Christ and experience God’s love and forgiveness. We look for every available means to share Christ in a relevant and compassionate manner.
Every person on earth. Cru is committed to unite with the worldwide body of Christ to help accelerate world evangelization through ongoing training, discipleship and prayer. We want to influence a chain reaction of people reaching people with the Good News of Christ’s love and forgiveness.
Fraternity Brother Dalton Hook entered university thinking he it was about partying and studying. He never expected to find God there, and pray and receive Christ in May of 2011 at Greek Summit, a summer trip for Greek Students involved with Cru.
If you’re leading a team then you know you that this is crunch time. There are a few precious weeks with these people who have been entrusted to your care before your staff peel off to focus on MPD and prepare for their summer assignments. You can help your team end well by reminding them that they are not lone rangers. You can lead a discussion on what it means to be a TEAM.
There is tremendous comfort in the knowledge that we are "seated" with Christ. You have a seat at the table with Jesus. You are seated with Him right now. You are at the Greatest Table with the Greatest King.
