Cru Central Coast is a part of Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ Int'l.), an interdenominational, worldwide Christian ministry with the goal of giving every student the opportunity to hear and respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ.

With over a thousand students involved in our ministry, we have dozens of opportunities to make lifelong friends and share Jesus through Community Group Bible studies, social events, Discipleship relationships, short-term missions, and weekly large group meetings.


We are currently active on the campuses at Cal Poly, Cuesta College, Allan Hancock College, Cuesta College North Campus, and SLO High School. We have weekly Bible studies in every campus residence at Cal Poly, as well as in several locations throughout the greater SLO area.

We gather as a large group every Tuesday night from 8:00-9:30pm at Mountainbrook Church for praise, fellowship, and a message from various speakers, including our staff and local campus director, Jamey Pappas. There are rides available from Cal Poly meeting at the PAC at 7:30pm.


There is always a huge need for new staff and interns as we are on many campuses and are shepherding well over 1,000 students! Our current teams has 15 full-time staff members and nine interns and part-time staff.


You can help change one life at a time through the message of The Gospel! Partner with us to provide the critical resources needed to reach every student on the Central Coast with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
