We recognize that God created men and women differently. As men, we prefer bonding over doing activities together. We need to be challenged and encouraged to be all that God has created us to be. The common perception is that men are too self-reliant and don’t need deep friendships. Get involved with Cru Men and you will be challenged and developed in ways that will prepare you to one day be a better husband, father... and man.
While video games and Sports Center are both truly awesome, it's time to get out of our fraternity and dorm rooms and grow as men. As guys, we need accountability and community for the unique challenges we face. This year, in addition to all our other Cru Men events we are adding CRU PAINTBALL WARS. Along with free play we will also use paintball as a way to teach Biblical manhood principles. It's going to be... awesome.
Men's Retreat is always a highlight for Cru Men. In the spring, we join college men from other schools in MO for a weekend of manliness, spiritual growth and bonding. There is also the annual "Manhood Challenge" where Cru at Mizzou has traditionally dominated any and all competitors. Don't miss this opportunity to grow as a man!
Every Friday afternoon around 2:30pm, we meet to play basketball at the Mizzou Rec. Anyone can come play...feel free to bring a friend. You can find us playing on the courts at the West (Near Stankowski Field) entrance to the Rec. We usually end up at the two courts furthest from the racquet ball courts.
"Deep in his heart, every man wants to be a part of a team that does something great. Just look at the movies men adore. A team comes together to save the world, steal the money, or win the championship. The Lord of the Rings, X-Men, The Matrix, Saving Private Ryan, Oceans Eleven, Remember The Titans… feature a band of brothers who attempt the dangerous, the outrageous, the impossible. Each member of the team has a specialty and makes a vital contribution. A band of brothers. Though he may not realize it, every man longs to be a part of one” (D. Murrow).
