CCI is a strategic partner of Cru, formerly Campus Crusade for Christ, and the Greenhouse Movement, a church planting movement born out of the Anglican Church of North America. CCI exists to transform lost students into lifelong church laborers by multiplying Chicago campus movements that are meaningfully connected with the local church.

Cru is the largest missions organization in the world, it comprises a community of people passionate about connecting people to Jesus. They help Christians around the world do evangelism in a variety of ways, but it all began on college campuses. Today Cru has campus ministries in 2,300 locations engaging more than 100,000 students and faculty members on U. S. college campuses

Greenhouse is a Chicago-based movement that works to facilitate rapid and spontaneous church growth by following the Holy Spirit’s lead. After studying the infrastructure that arose during the East African Revival, Greenhouse founder, Fr. William Beasley, wanted to see the same kind of growth happen in the Americas. Today, Greenhouse trains leaders, plants new congregations, and helps catalyze movements of churches and Christians across the globe.
