Cru is a community passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ.
Cru (also known as Campus Crusade for Christ) is the parent ministry of Cru Foundation. Cru exists to fulfill the Great Commission through the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ.
They focus on creating spiritual movements that build up disciples and send them out to bring others to Christ. Cru’s vision is for everyone in the world to know someone who is truly living out new life in Jesus.
Cru was founded in 1951 by Bill and Vonette Bright. This ministry, which began on the UCLA campus in Southern California, is now active in 191 countries.
