Summer Missions with Cru
You can spend part or all of your summer growing in your faith alongside other students.
What's this all about?
Summer Missions give you the opportunity to spend anywhere from a week to 10 weeks of your summer growing in your faith. You'll have a chance to meet people from across the country and around the world. You will get to study the Bible with others, share your faith, and build friendships that can last for the rest of your life. It's a grand adventure that you won't ever forget!
Where can I go?
You can go just about anywhere. This summer buckeyes are heading to Slovakia, Chicago and Ocean City, New Jersey, but there are Summer Missions in tons of other places. Head to the Cru Summer Missions page to check out other locations and to learn more!
Freshman Leadership Team (FLT) exists to give freshmen the opportunity to meet other freshmen involved with Cru and to form community around pursuing Jesus, to grow as followers of Christ, and to take more ownership of the movement of Cru at Ohio State.
At FLT, we will hangout, have fun, do life together, grow in our understanding of leadership, and most importantly, discover how the good news of the Gospel applies to our daily lives! If you are a freshman, we hope to see you there!
