Perhaps God is calling you to serve Him as a full time international missionary with Cru. What are the steps to getting there?
The first step is to engage in some experience with one of our Cru ministries. This will help you learn more about our teams and what it is like to engage in sharing the gospel and discipling others.
Through this experience, whether volunteering, going on a short term mission, or engaging with one of our ministries in your city, you will gain great experience in ministry that will support your application to be a full time staff member.
You should seriously consider going on an international internship for a year to the country you are interested in, as this is the best preparation for long term service.
Once you have engaged with one of our Cru ministries, you’ll fill out an application to be a Full Time Staff Member. Once you are accepted, you'll attend a New Staff Training conference held in Jan/Feb, May, June/July or September to learn the essentials of our mission and receive training in how to develop your financial support team.
You’ll be assigned with your international team. When you have completed raising your financial support, you, or your family together, will attend cross-cultural training in June. If you are married with children, Cru has a ministry to and with your kids, starting at the cross-cultural training.
After the training, you will make your moving preparations and join your international team, building spiritual movements as a full time missionary.
