Cru Santa Barbara
A caring community passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ
We desire to have real, genuine relationships in order to fully live a life with and for God. Our staff and student leaders welcome others into spiritual journeys by being fully committed to coming alongside them to inspire growth wherever they are along the journey towards God.
Cru fosters relational environments of openness and vulnerability where you are able to ask tough questions and share hard things all while being surrounded by a group of people who love and support you, at all times.
