• Thursdays at 8pm

    Join us on Thursday nights for worship, stories, talks from the Bible, and opportunities to connect with other college students who are pursuing Jesus.

    RealLife's "home" is Hitchcock Hall 131, but we will occasionally be "on the road" at other locations. Check out our Instagram feed for week-to-week updates on the location of RealLife. We can't wait to see you!

  • What Would Jesus Undo?

    New series beginning September 15.

    In this 8 week series, we will walk through the 7 woe’s that Jesus issues in Matthew chapter 23. We hope to go beyond simple slogans of what it means to follow Christ, and open ourselves up to discover the knots in our own lives that Jesus wants to undo, so that we can live an authentic faith. Whether you consider yourself a Christian, a skeptic, or an unbeliever, we invite you to join us this semester as we explore the question: What Would Jesus Undo?

    Is it Reasonable to Believe in God?

    Special RealLife with Dr. DiSilvestro, OSU Human Nutrion Professor, on September 29.

    Is it possible to be an academic and to believe in God? With all the scientific tools that we have at our disposal, how can someone believe that Jesus really rose from the dead? Join us on September 29, as Dr. Disilvestro, an Ohio State professor of Human Nutrition, shares why he believes it is reasonable to believe in God.
  • What is RealLife?

    RealLife is a place where students bring students to grow in our understanding of who God is, who he says we are, and how that impacts our lives. You can expect stories of how God is at work in the lives of other students, worship led by the RealLife band, and a practical teaching from one of our Cru staff members.

    At RealLife we like to laugh, have a good time, and think deeply about God, our lives, and the world around us. We love seeing new faces, so the door is always open and you're invited!

  • Would you like to join the RealLife Band?

    You can audition by following these four steps.


    Get Familiar

    Thank you for your interest in auditioning for the RealLife band! First, please read this "Things to know prior to auditioning" document. Then take a look at this document to find the audition songs for your particular instrument.



    For your audition, listen to the songs for your instrument with headphones, and play along as you record. Please learn the parts from the recording and play them as closely as possible. If you want to add some of your own style to your video, feel free.


    Before Submitting

    Your completed video should only contain audio from your instrument. If you have any other previously recorded videos of your playing that you feel are a good representation of your playing abilities, feel free to submit them in addition to the required songs.



    Fill out this form to submit your audition file, and we will get in contact with you soon. If you have trouble recording or submitting your videos (I don’t have my instrument with me at school, the file is too big, etc.) please let us know and we’ll figure something out. Thank you again for your interest!
