Cru at VCU

Cru at VCU  meets multiple times a week in a variety of forms! From Community Groups that meet each night of the week and outreaches on the compass to socials on the weekends and conferences and retreats over breaks and holidays, there always seems to be something going on to connect with other students and to grow in our faith! Connect with us at one of our events below!

RVA Cru Weekly Meeting

VCU: Student Commons Theater Thursday nights at 7pm

Gather with other students from all over Richmond for a game or two, meeting new friends, worshipping God through music, and learning more about God from a speaker.  We also usually hang out afterwards as part of our Cru: After Hours – going to get bubble tea or playing games together in the Commons. No matter where you OR your friend is spiritually, we’d love to have both of you join us!



Community Groups

Women: Upperclassmen (Mondays) // Freshmen  (Tuesdays)

Men: Upperclassmen (Wednesdays) // Freshmen (Wednesdays)

Every week, we gather in smaller groups all around campus for an opportunity to go a little deeper into learning about God through studying the Bible together, getting to know each other more, and praying together. Joining a community group is an awesome way to get more connected with the overall RVA Cru community – bring your friends & look forward to having Community Group be a highlight of your week!



Evangelism & Outreach

Regularly throughout the semester all over campus

We love engaging our campus in spiritual conversations to listen to what others believe and potentially share what we believe as well.  Whether it’s through conducting surveys like Soularium or setting up the Perspective Banners on The Compass, we want to meet new people, learn their thoughts on God, life, and spiritual things, and talk with them more about what we believe as well! We also are regularly praying for opportunities to engage with our classmates, roommates, coworkers, and friends as we get to know Jesus better ourselves. Our heart is that everyone in Richmond would know someone who truly follows Jesus!



Fridays at 1pm

We know that nothing will happen on our campus and in our lives unless God does the work! So we come together before God every week to pray for our community, our campus, our city, and the world. We know that God meets us when we join together and ask Him for things in Jesus’ name, so we love to do just that.  We want to pray for you and we want to pray for the needs of those around us – join us here every week!



Retreats & Conferences

Fall Retreat: September 28-30 Camp Silver Beach

Cru Winter Conference: December 28 – January 1 Baltimore, MD | more info here!

Spring Break Trip: TBD

Cru Summer Mission Trips  | more info here!

We love being on campus and knowing Jesus together in our normal weekly rhythms, but there’s something special about getting away together with a bunch of students from all over the East Coast – Virginia up through New England – for some intentional time of learning, growing, and serving others.  Winter Conference is the perfect opportunity to join 1000+ other students to get away, mid-school year, enjoy the Baltimore Inner Harbor, learn more about God, and kick off the New Year in the best way possible: a dance party, followed by prayer & worship! You won’t want to miss this life-changing week.
