God used the ministry of Cru at Tim’s high school to alter the course of his life.
75% of all people who choose to embrace Jesus Christ as their Savior do so before their 18th birthday!
90% of all youth ministry takes place INSIDE the US, and yet 97% of all youth exist OUTSIDE of the US.
Reaching teenagers is one of the most strategic ministries worldwide to help fulfill the Great Commission.
65% of teenagers say there is no way to tell which religion is true, and researchers predict that only 4% of teens will become Bible-believing Christians.
Our mission in Cru is to build spiritual movements on every campus, so that every student has the chance to know and follow Jesus Christ.
Tim grew up in Steamboat Springs and Boulder, CO. He graduated in 1995 from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor of Science…
Sue grew up in Cleveland, OH and graduated in 1995 from Bowling Green State University with a Bachelor of Science in Education…
The Lord has given us a passion for launching and accelerating movements of spiritual multiplication internationally so that every student on every campus will have the chance to know and follow Jesus Christ!

From Our Ministry Partners
"We have seen Tim and Sue’s passion for youth and believe that this age group desperately needs to hear the truth of Christ as they begin to form their identities and values. It is an honor to partner with them and to see lives being changed by the power of the Holy Spirit!"
"Our family has been honored to participate with the Ehrharts in their Godly mission through CRU. We are so proud of their efforts! They have served our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by relating to and loving young people all over the world for years!"
"I served in local church youth ministry many years myself, and I saw firsthand the wall of competition and resentment that sometimes stands between the local church and organizations like Cru. Tim is a rare breed who bridges that gap, and serves the whole body of Christ in ways that bring the two together."
"We are convinced that a recipe for ministry success is to combine families who love God with organizations on mission for Him. The Ehrharts and Cru are just that and we are proud to partner with them."
"It has been such a tremendous blessing and encouragement to partner with Tim and Sue over the last 15 years! They are consistently sensitive and surrendered to God and He has them in a place where their gifts are being used effectively to further His kingdom. We rejoice in His work in and through them – and we are thankful for the opportunity to be a part of it!"
"The Ehrharts and Cru are passionately pursuing tangible and lasting impacts for Christ in the lives of teenagers. Their relational approach is both real and relevant to this younger generation that is struggling to make sense of our broken world. The same way they pointed me to Christ when I was a teen, Cru continues to point teens to Christ."
"We established a partnership with Tim and Sue more than 10+ years ago when they were in our local area. We were amazed at the Christian worldview these students had developed because of the influence of Cru in their lives. What a joy to know we can be a part of this ministry in some way."
"I want to be part of reaching and discipling youth so that they can experience the peace and security that comes from a personal relationship with the Lord."
