Michigan's UP Cru Retreat

  September 30 - October 2, 2022

Fall Retreat 2022

Sept.30 - Oct. 2, 2022
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 are at a new location this fall: Gitche Gumee Bible Camp.
Registration will be in the dining hall.

Speaker: Andrea and Chris Boeyink

Chris and Andrea Boeyink live in Defiance, Ohio with their several cats, a hamster, 12 or 13 chickens (who can say?), and an occasional stray human. They have been on staff with Cru since 2005, and are working with students at several schools in Northwest Ohio. They love books, outdoors, gardening, and good coffee. Jesus is the most important person in their lives, but after that come their amazing kids, Jack and Corrie. If they could be any character from the Lord of the Rings, they would be Hobbits, because they basically already are.
