We are a caring community that is passionate about connecting the campus to Jesus. 

Lives Changed by Jesus

We believe that the gospel, the good news about who Jesus is and what he has done, has the power to heal, restore, and renew our lives. Our desire is to see as many students as possible have a chance to experience Jesus and be transformed by him. 

A Caring Community

We are a caring community passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ. We care deeply about one another and are excited about helping others know Jesus.  

Here you’ll find opportunities to grow in your faith and to make a difference for Christ on campus and around the world.  You’ll find people trying hard to reflect the love and grace they have experienced through Christ. You won’t find people who are perfect – just passionate about Jesus and following him.

A Heart for Campus & the World

We believe that everyone is on a spiritual journey and that God desires to use us in the lives of those around us. Cru at Kent State wants to be a spiritual resource for every student and faculty on campus and to provide experience and training for students be a light for Jesus wherever they are. 

We hope that a student's time in Cru as a student launches them into a lifetime of walking with Jesus and making an impact for him beyond college. 

Bible Studies & Weekly Gathering

Community Groups

Here you’ll find a caring group of people who talk about life, faith, and God, explore and learn from the Bible, make memories, and walk through college together. Wherever you are spiritually interested, searching for Christian community or just looking for something new, we hope you’ll check one out. See our list of days, times, and contact info for leaders below.
