Michigan's UP Cru Retreat

March 26-28, 2021

Spring Retreat 2021

March 26-28, 2021
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.

Speaker: Roger Hershey

Roger “Hersh” Hershey graduated from Penn State in 1972. While in college he was in the Marching Band for 2 years, a cheerleader for 2 years and in the Chi Phi Fraternity.

He met his wife Roxanne in college and have been married 42 years. They have four kids, ­ ages 40, 37, one in Heaven and 26.

Roger has been on staff with Cru for 43 years and served with the high school and university ministries and is presently a leader on the Great Lakes Regional team overseeing campuses all over Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Michigan.

He loves to play volleyball, racquetball and Risk. Roger is a die hard Penn State Nittany Lion fan. He loves to hang with college students and have fun.

Roger has written a book, The Finishers, which talks in detail ­why this generation could be the one that completes the Great Commission and hastens the return of the King.
