New to Cru?
Welcome to UNC! For more about our organization, our staff, or our statement of faith, check out “Who Are We.” UNC can be a big place to find a place to belong and thrive, but we hope to make it easy for you to find your way with us. Here’s what we suggest if you’re trying to find a way to plug in to our ministry:
Find a community group: Our hope is to have groups for guys and girls led by students and staff all across campus no matter who you are. We have students leaders and staff that would love to get to know you and help you find your way. In addition to meeting weekly to study the bible, these groups are great sources of connection, community, and friendship.
Greek Life, Destino, and Athletes in Action: If you are an NCAA athelete or involved in the programs, in a fraternity or sorority, or are of Hispanic descent and prefer a Spanish lanauge community, you might want to check out one of our many groups focused on experiencing God in those contexts. Or you may simply come to Cru as well, whichever place you feel most comfortable.
Join the Cru at UNC GroupMe: Yeah we’re on GroupMe too. It is a great place to follow the constant stream of social events, casual hangouts, Cru and non-Cru related events going on. It’s a mess but it’s fun!
Drop by our weekly meeting: Join us on Thursdays night at 7:30 p.m! Though the location sometimes changes (we’ll let people know on Instagram and GroupMe), you can usually find us in the Genome Sciences Building on Thursday nights at 7:30pm starting the first week of class. Cru’s weekly meeting is our weekly time to gather together as a group. Together we engage in musical worship, find out what’s going on throughout the ministry, and hear a message from one of our local leaders. This is also a place where you can meet other students who are looking to invest in their spiritual growth, and connect with one of our staff members.
Meet the Staff: We would love for you to get in touch with one of us. We have ten full-time staff members, and our primary job is to meet with students just like you. Questions about faith, the Bible, or Christianity? Struggling with some of life’s big issues? Searching? While we don’t have it all together, we understand the pressures and realities of life and UNC and we’d be happy to grab coffee or lunch with you to listen and offer our help.
Community Groups Community Groups are a huge part of Cru at UNC. The Thursday night large group meeting is the flagship of the ministry, but these small groups are where you will really find growth amongst a community that grows deeper and more honest with one another. Learn more about joining a community group near you here.
Servant teams are smaller leadership teams that serve the movement in the different areas of support. We would love for you to join one of our teams. Learn more about Servant Teams here.
