Applying to be a full time missionary with Cru is a multi-step process. First you will need to identify the Cru ministry and position that you want to apply for. In the case of many of our ministries, the first step may be to complete an Interest Form to help our ministry personnel connect with you in a personal way, to help you experience and begin some relationships with our current staff members.
How to Apply
Once you have identified the Ministry and position you are applying to, start an application online. Our online application is very robust, and will take you a couple hours to complete. You will be able to login and start, save your work and come back later to finish if needed.
Our applicant liaisons will connect with you once you begin your application and assist you in confirming the ministry and position you are applying for. They will also help determine the sequence of training you will need to complete if accepted. One of our staff will connect with you to arrange a phone appointment to go over your application. After the phone interview a decision will be made on your application.
