Our mission is to offer every student on campus the opportunity to know a group of people who truly love and follow Jesus. We hope to do this by allowing students to discover the person of Jesus, grow in a relationship with him, and go out into the world ready to walk with him for a lifetime.



LifeGroups are the heart and soul of CI. We gather to embrace the highs and lows of life, discuss what the teachings of the Bible mean for our lives, and together find ways to impact the world.


It's Wednesday and you're just hoping to make it to the end of the week. Come join us for a midweek break for connecting with a joyful community, hearing from challenging speakers, getting outside ourselves in worship, and enjoying some delicious homemade snacks with friends. Hope to see you there!

Wednesday Nights, 7:30pm in Memorial Church!

“God works in everyone’s life. People within CI & AIA have challenged me so much, especially the Football guys. They have taught me how to be bold, be unapologetic about my faith, and how to show grace to people. They have been such good role models to me in that regard. He’s used people that I never really thought I would be friends with to teach me how to really love Him and be bold for Him. “
— Keziah Imbeah, Class of 2016


God is working at Harvard, but he's also working throughout the city of Boston. One of the unique things that CI offers is it's connection to multiple other movements around the city. MIT, BU, BC, Wellesley, and other campuses are also working to make Christ known on their campuses. Once a month we gather as a large, citywide movement for encouragement, teaching, worship, and fellowship at a Boston student gathering called Citywide. It's an amazing time to connect with other students and see how God is moving on campuses across Boston. 

Five Friday Nights a year, 7:30pm at Park Street Church; click here for the schedule.

summer & J-term missions

God designed you to make a difference in the world.

Whether it’s a prayer walk on a campus in Asia, a conversation about Jesus in a coffee shop in Europe or a night of worship on a sandy beach in the States, a Summer Mission with Cru is your opportunity to make your summer extraordinary.

retreats and Conferences

Sometimes you just need to get away from campus to have some fun with friends, meet new people, or simply to connect with God and his people in a deeper way. This is where Cru conferences and retreats come in to play. Come away with us with the first weekend in October to Lake Winnipesaukee, NH, for our annual Fall Retreat. Here you'll connect with other students from the Boston area and engage in a weekend full or worship, reflection, growth, and fellowship.

As winter rolls around and that J-term break comes, we have lots of options to choose from. Stay local and join us for our Body-Building retreat in Cambridge. Or you can look to get out of town with us to attend conferences specifically for international students, African-Americans, multi-ethnic groups, and/or athletes. We've got options and we'd love for you to join us!
