While some students, leaders and mentors will come only to the conference, many will be joining the mission trip portion of Getaway 2023. Right after the conference is over, you will be invited to step on a plane. You and a team of 10-20 other people will connect with teams in a new country and help them grow their ministry.
Thank you for your interest in Cru’s High School Ministry summer mission trips! Every year God uses these experiences to change lives. We hope that you’ll encounter the Lord in a personal way as you complete this application. We trust that God will continue to lead you as you seek His face and His will.
Here’s a brief sketch of what you need to do to apply for your mission trip.
After giving us some basic personal information, you will be asked about your relationship with God, others, and yourself. We want to learn more about you to determine if a Cru mission trip is a good fit for you. Your application will automatically save every 30 seconds, every time you go to a new page, and when you hit the save button.
You will need to contact two people who are not related to you and a parent/guardian to give you a reference. Once you give us their email address, an online reference form will be emailed to them to be completed on your behalf. Be aware that sometimes these emails end up in their spam folder. References needed:
Once you submit your application for review your parent/guardian will receive an email from Cru’s Risk Management Department which will be the Parent Consent Packet. They will need to read and sign the document before your application can be reviewed.
Soon after submitting your application you may receive an email with instructions to complete a background check. Please email our office with any questions you may have concerning this process: email@example.com.
There is a $25 dollar application fee that must be paid before you can submit your application. You can pay with a credit/debit card or with an account transfer through a staff/ministry/scholarship account. For an account transfer, ask your local Cru staff member (or your parents if they are on staff with Cru) for that information.
