Watch the recording from the “I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist” event at Union South! Christian apologist Frank Turek gave an amazing presentation with scientific, logical, and philosophical responses to two of the most important questions people face: “Does truth exist?” and “Does God exist?” He then responded to comments and questions from the crowd.

God calls us to bring the Gospel to all people in the Great Commission. “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:18-20, NIV) At our recent “Heart for the World” themed Primetime, we took some time to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in a country where we are free to express our faith in Jesus, where we have easy access to bibles, and where we rarely fear persecution because of our beliefs. We also learned about the great need for the Gospel around the world and what we can do to fulfill the Great Commission in our lives.

Badger Cru is an interdenominational Christian group and a registered student organization at the University of Wisconsin- Madison. Badger Cru is part of Cru international which is active on over 1,200 campuses in the UW and around the world.
Badger Cru exists to help UW students on their spiritual journey. We love to help students discover how they can have a real, personal connection with God and we work to help students strengthen that relationship.
And the best way to take a journey is with a bunch of friends, right? So we provide plenty of opportunities for students to become part of a tight, supportive community.
Here are just a few ways we try to do that: our fun weekly gathering called “Primetime,” small group Bible studies, our Fall Getaway retreat in October, Christmas Conference, Parties/Socials/Sports, Big Break spring break trip, and much, much more!
So, why not come check us out?
