Meet Our Team

Beth Beach

Beth graduated from Ohio University in 2008 and immediately joined staff with Cru. She served at OU for 6 years and just moved to Cleveland in May 2014. She loves to cook and bake, especially if she can enjoy it with other people. She enjoys spending her downtime either reading and drinking coffee or painting her nails, both of which are passions in her life.

Nate & Megan Berkey 

Nate and Megan were involved in Cru as students where they developed hearts that ached to see college students come to know the Lord and grow in their faith. Once Nate convinced Megan to marry him they didn’t mess around. They married in 2009,  graduated from Mount Union College in 2010, and joined staff directly afterwards. They have two daughters, Lia (4) and Josie (2) who spend their days twirling, dancing, singing, and are way better at evangelism than they are.

Brian & Jenny Metzer 

Brian and Jenny moved from Columbus to lead Cru Cleveland and Northeast Ohio during the Summer of 2011. Previously they served at The Ohio State University (where they each graduated), since 1999 for Brian and 2006 for Jenny.  They love the city and consider themselves Clevelanders (Brian’s an impostor, but it’s a secret; Jenny grew up here). Brian talks with his hands a lot and uses big words. Jenny is the fun one and people prefer spending time with her (she wrote this bio). They have a 4 year old son Joey who has the energy of  thousand suns, and a sweet and wrinkly newborn, John.
