• Join us for Fall Getaway October 28-29!

    Our annual Fall Getaway is a highlight event for the Cru movements at Ohio State and Central State. Together we head away from campus for a weekend of community, worship, learning, and fun. Whether you've been connected to Cru all year, or you've just started to come around, Fall Getaway is a great way to dive into community, connect with God, and grow in your faith.

  • What to Expect

    Here's just a few of the things you can expect to experience at Fall Getaway.

    Three Main Sessions with Worship and Talks from Pastor, Author, and Professor Mark Buchanan

    On Friday night, Saturday morning, and Saturday night, we will have main sessions with worship led by the RealLife Band, talks about God's character from our guest speaker Mark Buchanan, stories of how God is at work in our lives, and small group (no worries, we will assign these when you arrive!) times where we will discuss what we are learning.

    Time for Fun in Community

    One of the most important parts of Fall Getaway is having time to connect with others from our Cru movement and build community. Whether you are getting to know your small group more, reconnecting with old friends, or making brand new friends, Fall Getaway will have time for you to connect in community. We will have formal chances to connect in small groups through discussion times during main sessions and through the annual Amazing Race competition. And we will have informal chances to connect by playing volleyball and other games in the gym, competing in the Capture the Flag tournament on Saturday afternoon, playing board games in the game room, sipping on coffee from the coffee tent, boating on the lake and much more!

    Time to Reflect and Connect with God

    While we want Fall Getaway to be a fun and community filled weekend, we also want to provide a chance for you to slow down a bit and spend time connecting with God. On Saturday morning we will give you tools and space for a "quiet time" where you can read the bible and talk with God for a few minutes about your semester and what you are learning at Fall Getaway. We would also LOVE for our community to spend time throughout the weekend casually sharing about what we are learning and growing in.

    Who is Speaking?

    • We are thrilled that this year we will be joined by Mark Buchanan as our Fall Getaway speaker!
    • Mark is a pastor, author, and Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at Ambrose University. His books include "God Walk: Moving at the Speed of Your Soul." He regularly contributes to the Leadership Journal and Christianity Today.
    • On his website Mark writes, "I am a husband and father. A brother and friend. I was a son, but now I am an orphan (if one can be such a thing at my age). I am a writer, a professor, a speaker. I sometimes make noises on the guitar, sometimes even in front of people. I like nothing so much as to sit and read in front of a fire, or else nothing so much as walking deep in wild places. I love to scuba dive, and ride a motorcycle, and fish a slow bend of a fast river. My goal in life is to be a saint, but I often have to settle, simply, for not complaining while carrying out the trash or getting stuck in traffic. I take all the small victories I can get."

    What should I bring?

    • A Bible, journal, and pen.
    • A pillow and sleeping bag (or sheet and blanket).
    • Toiletries
    • A towel and shower stuff  (If you plan to shower)
    • Athletic clothes (we will have an optional capture-the-flag tournament as well as sports going in the gym).
    • Warm clothes- A lot of Fall Getaway takes place outside. Be sure to pack accordingly!
