About Us

Our Passion For This Conference

The concept of "we" is the mission-critical value for Cru Inner City...true partnerships, rooted in legitimate friendships with our co-laborers, in ministry that targets the inner city. We’ll join what God is already doing among His image bearers in our communities and give Him the glory! This conference is a tool, a gift of love and a direct way to offer “a cup of cold water” to our compatriots serving among “the least of these.”

The heart of this conference is discipleship in the context of grace and justice. Together, we’ll discover how to build a lifestyle of discipleship to reach the world, to be conduits of his grace and voices for justice. We’ll invite believers to step away from a neutral stance on the issues of biblical justice and engage in the gospel issues of the day such as poverty, fatherlessness, and racism.

It is an extraordinary opportunity to share the loaves of bread that have nourished us in our Master’s service. TOGETHER we can live out grace and justice for those who are poor and marginalized. Join us for Creating Options TogetherTM 2016!

Cru Inner City

In the inner city, if you can't touch it, you can't use it. If it doesn't help you survive, then it isn't real. Don't talk about "hope" unless you can demonstrate it. Enter Cru’s Inner City Ministry which began as Here’s Life Inner City.

We partner with inner-city churches that are committed to ministering to the whole person — body, mind, and spirit. At the heart of these partnerships is a proven 3-phase strategy (Connecting, Empowering and Developing) called the "Circle of Hope."

When we Create Options, we work innovatively to turn ideas into practical resources for families and individuals in need. Many of the devastating effects of poverty stem from a lack of options. By working together with friends and partners in ministry, we find fresh ways to apply the hope of the gospel to the many issues poverty leaves in its wake. The resources we offer are intimately tied to finding new life in Jesus Christ and bring compassion and valuable life training ... to the ultimate fulfillment of the Great Commission.
