Michigan's UP Cru Retreat

October 2-4, 2020

Notice: Due to the recent spike with Covid-19 cases in the Houghton, MI area, we needed to ask our MTU Cru students to not attend this retreat in person. Only NMU students and those living in the Marquette area will be attending. 

We will be attempting to have a Zoom link so that our main sessions are able to be joined.  Thank you all for understanding.

Fall Retreat 2020

October 2-4, 2020
Retreat is an opportunity to spend a weekend away from school and campus to spend time with other believers and focus on God. It is a potentially life changing experience.


We have the privilege of hearing from Jared & Allison O'Connor, Matthew Plant and Dave Michels. They are all Cru staff here in the UP.

The topic is Defining Moments.

You won't want to miss what they will be saying.


$77 per person 
$20 total for First time Freshmen
$5 discount for first timers
