Simply put, we’re about three things: winning, building & sending. We want to win, or introduce students and faculty to Jesus so that the gospel may capture their hearts. We want to build students & faculty up in their faith and help them grow in their relationship with God as he transforms their lives. Finally, we want to send, or launch them out into a lifelong adventure with Jesus where they can repeat the process.
We are passionate about everyone knowing someone who truly follows Jesus.
Our official history in Richmond goes back to 2014 when the first Cru movement in recent history was established at Virginia Commonwealth University, but for years prior, men and women have been praying for this city and for Cru to be launched here. They were so passionate about seeing the eight different campuses in the Richmond Metro area reached for Jesus and in God’s timing, he has begun to answer those prayers and establish them.
Starting at VCU and then expanding beyond to other schools and movements in the area, like J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College and Destino at VCU, we are continually looking for opportunities to follow God and see what He will do as He brings men and women into a relationship with Himself. We are confident that as students and faculty are reached and eternally impacted, the surrounding areas of the city and the world will be forever changed through the Cru movements in Richmond.
We are trusting God to lead us to students or faculty who have a passion for their campus and for Him. If you are interested in seeing a community centered around Jesus launched somewhere in Richmond, contact us! We’d love to help you reach your campus – and the world – with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
