Inner City Dallas/Fort Worth


The Inner City Ministry of Cru began in New York City in 1983 and now serves in 17 cities around the country. We build partnerships with inner-city churches and ministries as they build bridges to those in poverty with the hope of Christ. Cru DFW started in September of 2012.

Cru DFW helps our partner churches and ministries CONNECT with people in need through five outreaches throughout the year. These relationship building outreaches include offering clothing and blankets for the homeless, school supplies and new shoes for children in need, and holiday meals for families. Everything we do involves reaching people in need so they can be enfolded into the body of Christ.

We EMPOWER our urban partners by looking for ways to build their capacity as they establish solutions to the issues of the poor. We offer education, training, manpower and material resources to help them serve men, women, and children in need.

We equip churches to construct DEVELOPMENTAL programs for children and adults. Youth development programs, like S.A.Y. Yes! Centers and Life-on-Life Mentoring, are designed to minister to the needs of the whole young person. Adult development programs help churches meet the needs of the working poor and at-risk populations with biblically-based tools focusing on character, life skills, career planning and job readiness.

Will you please partner with us in this mission to bring wholistic transformation to the poorest zip codes in the DFW Metroplex through the empowered inner-city church? We can't do it without you! Your partnership with us is as important as the work you are allowing us to do each and everyday. 

God Bless you!
