• Join us for our Spring Retreat on April 9-10.

    As we approach the end of a challenging year, we want to set time aside to come together as a movement. At Spring Retreat we will take time to reflect on what God has done in our lives and in our Cru communities at Ohio State, Columbus State, and Central State this year. We will worship together led by the RealLife band, hear talks from graduating Seniors about walking with God in college, and have plenty of time for fun in community. Like our Fall Retreat, this year's Spring Retreat will be best experienced in Pods. Throughout the weekend you will watch sessions, discuss, reflect, pray, and compete in challenges alongside your Pod. You don't want to miss out on Spring Retreat! Click below to register now!

    • Spring Retreat Sweatshirts! It's been a hard year for all of us. Even into the future, your Spring Retreat sweatshirt will serve as a reminder of our celebration of God's faithfulness and provision during the 2020-21 school year.

    Who is Speaking?

    • One Spring Retreat tradition isn't going anywhere! Like always, this year we will be hearing from several of our graduating seniors. Through a combination of talks and panels they will share what they have learned about God, the Christian life, missions, relationships, community, and more! 
  • What to Expect

    Here's just a few of the things you can expect to experience at Spring Retreat

    Three Main Sessions with Talks and Worship

    On Friday night, Saturday morning, and Saturday evening we will jump on YouTube Live together to worship God led by our RealLife Band, hear encouraging and relevant talks from our graduating seniors, and to hear stories of how God has been at work in our movements this year!

    Spring Retreat Pods

    Life is better in community, and we think Spring Retreat is too. That's why we're bringing back pods! Pods are groups of 5-10 people who you will have the opportunity to experience retreat alongside. You will meet with your pod before each of the three main sessions to connect and get to know one another, watch the session together, and then spend some time discussing what you are learning afterwards. Pods will be happening in person (if allowed under current university guidelines for student organizations) and/or virtually. When you register you can choose the option that fits best for you!

    Time to Rest and Connect with God and Community

    This weekend will have time built in for you to spend leisurely time with God. You can go for a walk to pray and reflect on your year, head to your favorite spot on campus to journal about what you are learning during the retreat, or sit down at your favorite coffee shop and use our guided reflection tools to read God's word and talk to him about your life.
