This summer thousands of students will go around the world on a Summer Mission with Cru. They will see God move with their own eyes – and through their own lives.

As the largest missionary organization in the world, Cru is well equipped to prepare and send you for true gospel impact. Cru has many full-time staff missionaries who will lead and invest in you as you take steps of faith to share Christ with others. Our 50+ years of experience sending college students merges with our global ministry partnerships to form a summer that will be significant to both you and to local ministries.

Iowa Cru Partnerships


Jersey Shore Express

The Jersey Shore has been a favorite stateside Summer Mission location for Iowa students and we are excited to continue in what God is doing there! Though this summer will look different than in years past, we would love for you to consider kicking off your summer with us in Seaside Park, NJ for a special "express" version of the Jersey Shore Summer Mission.



France has been one of Iowa Cru's longest global partnerships. We have sent students and staff for week-long vision trips, 6-week Summer Mission trips, and longer-term missionary opportunities. France is an incredibly dark spiritually, despite its global reputation. This year's Summer Mission will be in the city of Toulouse with intentional ministry time in Paris during the trip. Would you join us in bringing the gospel to France?


Côte d'Ivoire, West Africa

The Ivory Coast is a large French-speaking area of West Africa. This is a new partnership for us as Iowa Cru and we are excited to join in what God is doing there! Consider joining us this summer!
