• Welcome Home

    Cru at The Ohio State University

  • Join us on Thursday Nights at 8pm for RealLife.

    RealLife is a place where students bring students to worship God through music, hear a talk from the Bible, share stories of how God is at work, and connect with new and old friends. We'll be together every Thursday night this semester. We'd love to have you join us!

  • 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!

  • Spring Break Trips

    Sign up today!

    This March we will be sending three Spring Break trips out from Cru at Ohio State, Columbus State, and Central State.

    One will go across the globe to our partnership in Bratislava, Slovakia. This team will spend 5 days on college campuses in Bratislava learning about the country and culture, and engaging in spiritual conversations with students there.

    The second will be a new trip to Panama City Beach, Florida. This is a great option for any student. We will spend our mornings investing in spiritual growth through individual and group devotionals, in the afternoon we will be given training and tools to spend time on the beaches of PCB having spiritual conversations and sharing about Jesus, and in the evenings we will share meals together and enjoy relaxing time in community.

    The third trip will be right in our own backyard: Columbus Spring Break. We will be joining in with organizations in the city to serve our community in tangible ways. The trip will involve service projects, learning opportunities, and time for fun in community with other Cru students on the trip!

    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!
