Cru / Andrew & Karlayne Powars

Cru is a caring community passionate about connecting people to Jesus. Andrew and Karlayne Powars, members of Restoration, are the directors of Cru in Washington, DC, with a focus on the college campus. Their ministry involves Bible studies, evangelism, seeker groups, large group meetings, service projects, discipleship, and outreach events. Their goal is to capture hearts, transform lives, and launch men and women into a lifelong adventure with Jesus Christ.

In 2011, Cru launched on the campuses of Marymount University and American University. The Powars family is praying and expectant that God will continue to do great things on these campuses and also lead them to launch on others.


Andrew and Karlayne are always looking for people who have a passion for the next generation and would like to partner with them prayer, volunteering, or financial support. Learn more at DC Cru’s website, or visit the Powars family’s personal page if you would like to give financially to their ministry.
