Cru is a school-based ministry that engages teenagers and connects them to Jesus Christ. Since 1967, the ministry has been reaching out to teenagers across America and around the world. Cru has been ministering in Long Beach since 2012. Since that time, God has opened doors for Cru to be present at more than eight area schools, where it has the ability to share the good news of Jesus Christ. In each school, teams of full-time and part-time staff members, interns, and volunteers join hands with parents, educators, churches, and community leaders to equip students to make a positive and eternal difference.
Cornerstone Lay Leader
Cornerstone supports Cru missionaries at Wilson, Poly, Lakewood and Millikan High Schools and at CSU Long Beach. As a church, we have focused our ministry engagement on Millikan and Wilson High Schools.
The best way to get involved is to “go and see” what the ministry is all about by visiting a school campus alongside one of our local missionaries. If it’s a good fit and you are able to make a regular commitment (weekly or monthly) of 1-2 hours, you will receive appropriate training. Opportunities also exist to host meals, serve food, and offer prayer. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to take the next step.
CRU leaders meet virtually every Monday from 3:15 -4:15pm to pray over their students' welfare and spiritual growth. For more information or to join this prayer meeting, email Missions@cclb.org.
