My name is Andrew Brown and I am the Director of Cru at UVA. We currently have a staff of seven of us that are at UVA (check out our staff page to learn more).
Thank you for all the time, love, and energy that you have invested in your son or daughter’s life. We know that you desire for your child to thrive during their college experience. We also want your child to do well, and we believe that part of their success in college is to grow in their relationship with God.
You may be wondering what Cru actually is. We are a community where the gospel captures hearts, transforms lives and launches men and women into a lifelong adventure with Jesus. Cru is a ministry that has been on the grounds of UVA for many years and has existed nationally for over 60 years. It continues to be our privilege in the campus ministry of Cru to help college students know and follow Jesus Christ.
To help your son or daughter experience growth in their relationship with God while at UVA, we have small group Bible studies, socials, prayer meetings, weekly meetings, as well as regional and national conferences throughout the year. We also partner with several local churches in Charlottesville, because we know that being connected to the local church is critical to our faith.
We care very much about your son or daughter and hope that our community will provide a place for their continued spiritual growth and development. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I hope to meet you at one of our events in the future!
