Campus Crusade for Christ

ORGANIZATION

Founded 1951 by Bill and Vonette Bright at UCLA in Los Angeles. In 2011, the group shortened its name to Cru, explaining that the new name "enables us to have discussions about Christ with people who might initially be turned off by a more overtly Christian name."

"Helping to fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others; and helping the Body of Christ do evangelism and discipleship."
