CRU IS THE NAME OF CAMPUS CRUSADE FOR CHRIST INTERNATIONAL IN THE US. WE ARE AN INTERNATIONAL MOVEMENT STARTED ON THE CAMPUS OF UCLA IN 1951. THE FOUNDER OF CRU, BILL BRIGHT, REALIZED THAT FROM THE COLLEGE CAMPUS CAME THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS IN OUR COUNTRY. "IF WE REACH THE CAMPUS TODAY, WE CAN REACH THE WORLD TOMORROW," HE SAID. SINCE ITS FOUNDING, CRU HAS ESTABLISHED A MINISTRY PRESENCE ON 5,300 CAMPUSES ACROSS 193 COUNTRIES, MAKING IT THE LARGEST MISSIONS ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD.
