Chattanooga Cru


The greater Chattanooga area is home to over 40,000 college students spread out over several campuses around the city. Currently, Chattanooga Cru has a presence on campus at UTC, Chattanooga State, Lee University and Sewanee. Other campuses in our scope include Tennessee Temple, Dalton State, Bryan College and Covenant College. It is our hope that these students don’t merely attend class and get a degree, but that their college experience would center around connecting to Christ.

Especially here in the south, there are many who live religiously but without a true connection or relationship with Jesus Christ. Our hope is to help students and faculty engage spiritually and experience the deep fulfillment that God offers through a relationship with Himself.

We desire that students and faculty Connect to Christ: His Word, His People, & His World.

Connect to Christ: Point students/faculty to a life-giving relationship with God through Christ.
(I Peter 2:24)

His word: Help students/faculty understand, love, and follow God's word.
(Psalm 119:105)

His people: Connect students/faculty to a community of believers on campus and in local churches.
(2 Timothy 2:22)

His world: Urge students/faculty to make an impact for Christ locally, nationally, and internationally. (Matthew 28:18-20)

In order to see people connect to Christ, we host a weekly meeting where we gather to worship and receive teaching from His Word. Student leaders and staff meet weekly in small group Bible studies to connect with one another and study the Bible together. And throughout the year, we offer conferences and retreats with further training on how to live connected to Christ and as a passionate ambassador for Him on campus and in the world.

Would you consider making a donation to see students and faculty connect to Christ in a life changing way? Partner with us to provide the critical resources needed to reach every student and faculty in Chattanooga! Join others who invest their time and talents, their prayers, and their financial support to make an eternal impact on the lives of those on campus and the world!!
