Historically, it has been Cru’s policy to accept both husband and wife to serve concurrently as missionary staff members based on God’s calling them as a couple to our ministry. In 2014, Cru made the decision to allow individuals to join us without their spouses. We want to encourage a culture where all staff members are fully surrendered to and following God’s calling, even if it means that one spouse is called to serve in a different vocation. Because of this policy change it is very important that you are aware of all the implications of this employment status before you apply.

Cru New Staff Training includes 2 parts: Part 1: Institute of Biblical Studies (IBS); Part 2: New Staff Orientation (NSO). Trainings are held in Florida except the summer training on a senior staff training year, see below, which is then held in Ft Collins, CO.
Cru offers this four-week training every winter and summer (note that new staff members are expected to also attend Cru's national staff conference, which is held every other summer in Ft. Collins, CO. This would extend the time to five weeks for those attending that summer). Childcare is offered.
Cru offers this 10 day training 4 times a year. In the spring and fall only New Staff Orientation is offered and it is also offered summer and winter in the context of the full training.
The deadlines below indicate when we must have a completed application, which includes a detailed online application, all reference forms completed, and a staff interview when required. This could take 4-6 weeks to accomplish so you’ll want to be sure to start the process well before the deadline:
October 1 for winter NST (January/February)
March 1 for summer NST (June/July)
October 1 for winter NST ( early February)
February 1 for spring NST (late April or early May)
March 1 for summer NST (early July)
May 15 for fall NST (early September)
Cru has debt limits that may impact a person’s ability to join us. Anyone with debt limits exceeding $30,000 should first get a debt calculation before continuing with the application. For more information click here.
