University of Illinois at Chicago

Welcome all!

UIC Cru would like to welcome you to our official webpage. We are looking forward to a great school year and an amazing time reaching out to those on our campus! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact anyone below.

Who are we?

Cru is a Christian community that is all about helping University of Illinois at Chicago students discover and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We have weekly meetings, Bible studies, retreats, and parties all designed to help you grow closer to God and build relationships with each other.

We are a group of students who want to know God and be transformed by that relationship. We have not arrived, but we are on a journey.

It does not matter what part of campus you are from or what part of the world you are from. Whether you have been hearing about Jesus all your life or you know nothing about Him, we would love for you to enter into the journey with us.

Campus Crusade for Christ is an international, interdenominational Christian organization that meets on college campuses all over Chicago, the country, and the world.  Our aim is to win students to Christ, build them up in their faith, and send them out to reach others.

We are specifically trusting God to see student multipliers: students who walk by faith, by living Spirit-Filled lives, communicate their faith by seeking to share the Gospel with as many students around them, and multiply their faith by making disciples and helping them to do the same.
