Cru has adapted a simple model to reach college students: win, build, and send.  “Win” is just introducing people to Jesus.  We do this through conversations, large outreaches, and social media.  “Build” is simply creating life changing communities.  We want to help students grow in their faith through mentoring relationships, small groups, large retreats, and learning how to share their faith.  And then lastly, “send” is living life on a mission.  We want to see our students sent into church leadership, long-term and short-term mission trips, ministry in the workplace, and full-time mission work.  The idea is that 100% of students involved in our ministry will be equipped, called, and desiring to share the Gospel wherever the Lord calls them.
