How to Start a Campus Ministry

Step by Step


Share in the Vision

Our most significant ministry happens when we train students to become missionaries to their peers. We call it "Win, Build, Send."

What is your Vision?

  • After spending a significant amount of time in prayer and the Word, what needs of teenagers are most pressing on your heart?
  • How would things be different if all teenagers at school would come to know Christ?
  • What do you want to see God do at your local school? How do you want the school to be different 2-4 years from now? 

How to explain Cru High School - (School within a School)


Talk to a Coach

Share your vision with your Campus Ministry leadership and then call Cru High School. You can talk to a local Cru High School staff person in your area or call Cru High School's Coaching Center at 877-GoCampus to speak with a personal ministry coach who is available to provide phone “coaching” or training, along with tools and encouragement - all for free.

877-GoCampus (462-2678) or find out how you can volunteer with Cru High School here.


Apply to Volunteer
