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. Many Buckeyes head to Slovenia, Brazil, Chicago and Ocean City, New Jersey, but you can go to Colorado, Ecuador, Africa and tons of other places. Head to the Cru Summer Missions page to check out other locations and to learn more!

Columbus City Engagement
Our goal is to combine learning and service to provide a week to get to know Columbus better and the needs of the city. The trip focuses on four key areas: 1) Education 2) Anti-Sex Trafficking 3) Racial Justice 4) Poverty and Homelessness.
During the week we will hear from different speakers and change makers in the city on these topics, and we serve with a variety of organizations that are engaging in these needs. Columbus City Engagement is a great way to spend your spring break making an impact right here in Columbus!
