Cru is a faith-based mission organisation. This means that full-time staff members, including the President of Cru, have the responsibility to mobilise a team of ministry partners to pray and give for their personal ministry.
This is called "support-raising", a common practice among many mission organisations. It is also known as MPD (Ministry Partner Development) in Cru.
Raising support is rooted in the Old and New Testament. For example, the churches of Philippi supported the Apostle Paul (Phil. 1:3-5, 4:10-19) through financial gifts.
Each staff member raises support to cover the following:
When an applicant is accepted as a staff member, he/she is assigned an MPD coach who coaches them all the way through the completion of raising the needed support.
The amount is dependent on factors such as one's qualifications, relevant experience etc.. You will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Yes, you will be trained upon acceptance.
A coach will also be assigned to help you through the process. While this person will not be raising the support for you, he/she will give you weekly instruction and encouragement along the way.
This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Being in debt does not automatically disqualify you from serving as a Cru staffer.
Our salary package is constantly reviewed to allow fresh graduates the ability to finance his/her student loan debts.
Please do not share your support needs until you have been interviewed and accepted on staff.
You may share that you are applying to join Cru Singapore, awaiting the interview, and if accepted, you will need to raise your own financial support (for support-raising positions).
