Lifelines is an outdoor experiential learning network of the Cru campus ministry. Our purpose is to help people grow in relationship with God, in relationships with each other, in character and in leadership. Our main audience is college students, though we also take high school students and faculty on trips.
The outdoors has historically been an effective venue to connect with people, and with our increasingly media-saturated culture it can be even more transformational. We serve Cru to see students’ lives changed through experiencing Jesus and biblical truth on adventures. We take people on outdoor trips like rock climbing, snowshoeing, or whitewater rafting- not just for adventure sake, but to help challenge how they think about themselves, others, and God. Our programs encourage participants to take physical, emotional, and relational risks, placing them in a position to grow. It is our goal for people to experience the grace and truth of the Gospel as they connect with each other and God.
The Northeast team is based in Portland, Maine. We serve colleges all throughout the Northeast, from New York to Northern Maine. Our staff also help lead the local Cru campus ministries in the greater Portland area.
