How to Apply & Upcoming Training Dates

Work with Cru as a Full-Time Missionary

Application and Training Process

  • For all full-time missionary staff positions with any ministry of Cru, start by filling out an online application and submitting your references.
  • Our applicant liaisons will contact you about our process, and your application will be evaluated. If you are accepted for staff, your initial training with Cru will involve two components: Institute of Biblical Studies and New Staff Orientation. IBS is held 2 times a year and NSO is held 4 times a year (see below).
  • After NST you will develop your team of ministry partners who pray for and financially support your ministry with Cru.
  • Once your full support is raised you'll report to your assignment and join your team reaching people for Christ!
