Go Gophers!

We’re a caring community passionate about connecting YOU with Jesus!

We’re all on a journey to understand, know, and love God.  Wherever you’re at in life, we desire for Cru to be a safe & fun place for you!  We’re helping build spiritual movements so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus.  So what are you waiting for?…COME JOIN US!

Cru is more than a weekly meeting or Bible study.  Cru exists to help U of M students on their spiritual journey.  We are fellow students who love to help each other discover how to have a real, strong, and personal relationship with God…and the best way to take a journey is with a bunch of friends, right?

We provide plenty of opportunities for you, so come be part of Cru today!

UMN Cru is:
  • Community: We’re 350+ students strong.  We’re from all types of racial, denominational, & political backgrounds.  We have a weekly meeting called Shift that everyone is welcome to join where we gather to learn about God and grow in relationships with each other.  We also offer small group Bible studies where a more in-depth community is able to grow.  In addition to these weekly events we have conferences and parties to grow our community and love for the Lord.
  • International: Cru is active on over 2,000 campuses all around the world…in over 190 countries!  We provide opportunities for students to travel internationally on summer-long “Summer Missions”, week-long “Vision Trips”, & more!
