There are more developments in Cru’s steady demise into wokeness and a false Gospel. I do not say this with any kind of happiness. It is tragic what is happening. From all appearances, the national organization has embraced a false, social justice Gospel. The Bible-believing staff members who see the evil of the woke social justice narrative are going to face difficult choices.
Perhaps the solid people from Cru and InterVarsity could come together to form something new. I say this as a former InterVarsity staff member who believes IVCF has also gone off the rails nationally.
I know many in conservative circles aren’t thrilled with parachurch ministries, but bringing their networks together could help them pivot more quickly than trying to recreate the wheel.
In the following comments I’ll put some videos Jon Harris made about this. I have not had time to review them all, but am still going to share them for those who are interested.
Is Cru’s “Lenses Institute” the Underdog?

Acts 21-24 and the Social Justice “Underdog” Tactic
I don’t know if this specifically mentions Cru, but it is in the series of videos he did recently so I’m going to place it here. I’m assuming Harris is referring back to the video I just shared above.

The Whistleblower video by former Cru staff member Will Hoyler revealed shocking details showing how Critical Race Theory was used to indoctrinate Cru staffers through the Lenses Institute training. According to the notice from YouTube, the copyright holder filed a copyright claim, resulting in the removal of the video from YouTube.
Hoyler’s original whistleblower video pointed out some of the absurd Leftist talking points promoted by Cru in trainings required of its staff. In that first video, Hoyler asked a great question: if there were nothing to hide, then why is it secret?
