Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) is an interdenominational ministry that was established in 1951 at the campus of UCLA by Bill and Vonette Bright. Cru is committed to fulfilling the Great Commission by winning people to Christ, building them up in their faith and sending them out to win and build others. There are over 1,100 campus ministries nationwide and Cru has a ministry presence in 191 countries.
God has done some amazing things on campus here at NC State since our current Campus Director Mike Mehaffie arrived over 30 years ago! In 1981, there were 30 students involved and only 4 staff. After lots of prayer, Mike saw the ministry grow from 100 to 800 students from 1995-2000.
We now average about 1,400 students at our first few weekly meetings and taper off to about 800-1,000 by late fall. We have around 1,000 students involved in Bible studies and 200 student leaders. We are grateful for what the Lord has done and will continue to do!
