Groups to Reach

U.S and Global ROTC Cadets and Midshipmen

Valor is the Cru ministry for college and high school ROTC cadets and midshipmen, veterans on college campuses, and cadets at foreign military service academies.

Valor has three objectives: to WIN cadets/midshipmen/veterans to Christ, BUILD and strengthen their faith, and SEND them to reach others.

The purpose of Valor on your campus is to launch a movement where the Gospel captures hearts, transforms lives, and launches future leaders and experienced veterans into a lifelong adventure with Christ. The core of a movement is you and a friend or two (or more) coming together to live in authentic Biblical community. That community will be defined with a few basic principles: Devotion to Christ and His Word, Authentic Relationships, and Partners in the Great Commission.

Valor doesn’t replace or detract from the training and experience you get if you are at an academy or if you are in a commissioning program like ROTC, and it does not detract from your college experience if you are a veteran or future foreign military officer.  Instead, Valor enhances discipline, integrity, devotion, and resilience. 

Valor usually consists of weekly Bible studies, periodic social activities, and weekend retreats with Cru on your campus or with cadets/midshipmen or veterans in your region. All activities are voluntary and will be planned to not interfere with ROTC or other school activities as much as possible.
