We want to give everyone in Boston the chance to hear the gospel, learn about Jesus, and respond to it. We think that perhaps the best way to hear the gospel is to see it lived out in community. We'd love to have you join us.
Here at BU, you'll find students gathering together weekly in life groups. A life group is a group of people who've chosen to intentionally do life together. We talk about them being communities of "grace and truth." What that means is they are places that are safe for you to be yourself, with all your questions and baggage. So that means each of us will be accepted and loved and cared for. But out of that love will come a healthy amount of "truth." We're not content having a pity-party every week. We want to see our lives changed. And so we are committed to challenging each other with what the Bible says.
Because Boston has so many universities next to each other, we gather together on Friday nights at Harvard for a meeting we creatively call "City Wide." At our City Wide meeting, you'll find a couple hundred students from across the city. There'll be a great band with students from Berklee and other great music schools, there'll be a student sharing a little about their life and what's happening on their campus, and there'll be a talk by one of our staff. After the meeting, everyone hangs out eating 50 dozen fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. We've got parties, dances, and all sorts of fun stuff after the meeting is over. It's a great way to meet people from other campuses across the city.
Cru at BU, Real Life Boston, and Bridges International are all part of Cru (formerly called Campus Crusade for Christ). You can read our statement of faith here.
