Be part of a team committed to partnering with wholistic inner-city churches and ministries to fulfill the Great Commission, seek justice, and change a city! Applying to the full-time staff of Cru® is one of the greatest decisions you will ever make. Here are some basic questions people ask when joining staff.
We currently have staff teams in twelve U.S. cities: Atlanta, Bakersfield, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York, Orlando, and Seattle/Tacoma. Your placement would be determined by a city's staffing needs, your preference, and the best environment for your personal development.
Yes! It begins with New Staff Training at one of four annual Cru New Staff Trainings. Ongoing field training in both ministry skills and spiritual development happens at your city assignment. Online courses from the International School of Theology and summer study ensure that you continue growing throughout your ministry career.
Our full-fime missionary staff members raise their own financial support, as do all Cru missionary staff. Don't let this prospect intimidate you! If God has called you, go in faith that He will provide the resources. Extensive training, coaching, and tools are provided.
Urban Ministry Interns spend 9–12 months in inner-city ministry to develop their abilities and to help discern God's call to full-time ministry (see "Urban Internship"). Associate Staff members volunteer in inner-city ministry while working at a secular job. You may also raise support for training and ministry expenses.
