Cru Conveners


City Leadership Networks and Conveners

Conveners are collaborative leaders who are convinced that their unique relationship networks and influence are to be wielded to serve God’s vision for the city. Conveners unite to meet the cities deepest needs and show that Jesus and His gospel are better than anyone can possibly imagine! A Convener’s passion is to lift huge burdens, solve big problems and create great opportunities to bless their city.
