  • Spring Retreat

    Save the date for April 8-9, 2022

    Together we will spend a weekend reflecting on what God has done this year, worshiping with our RealLife band, hearing wisdom from a handful of seniors in our movement, and growing in friendship and relationships with God in the process. It's a great way to celebrate what God has done as the school year comes to a close. Stay tuned for dates and details as spring semester gets underway.

  • 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 disciples of Christ, and to take more ownership of the movement of Cru at Ohio State and Columbus 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!


    If you'd like more info about FLT, ask a small group leader or email Josh and Natalie!
