Who We Are
We win, build, and send college students to experience and live their life focused on the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are currently serving in the Shenandoah Valley, where approximately 40,000 college students reside. We are passionate about sharing the love and truth of the gospel, and we believe that college students have the potential to play a pivotal role in reaching the nations!
Donnie accepted Christ in high school, but it wasn't until college that God used Cru to show Donnie what it meant to truly walk daily with Christ. Donnie loved learning to share the gospel and "live life on mission." In 2017, on a summer mission to Ocean City, Maryland, Donnie felt God's clear calling to marry Paige and join staff with the ministry that God had used to change his life.
Paige was raised in a Christian home and accepted Christ at a young age. She began to feel God calling her to "love the broken ones" in high school. When Paige went to college, she found that Cru was radically sharing their faith and she wanted to have a part. During this season, God made it abundantly clear that joining staff with Cru was the next step to live out the calling God had placed on her heart.
What We Do
We WIN students with the gospel. We BUILD them up in their faith. We SEND them out to live life on mission, wherever God leads them.
With Cru, we desire for every student to know at least one person who is a true follower of Jesus. Cru is a community where the gospel captures hearts, transforms lives, and launches men and women into a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ.
