The ministry of Cru began on a college campus in 1951. Though much has changed on campuses since then, students still grapple with life issues – who am I? why am I here? It is crucial that the truth of the gospel be a ready topic of conversation and investigation.

In the New York metropolitan area, there are about 1.3 million college students. Cru ministries on campus seek to express love and life to these students so that they may be captivated and changed by Christ. Bible studies, fellowship times, and outreach events, as well as spring break and summer projects, foster friendships and strengthen faith.
