For College Students, June 7-15

Are you interested in working with teenagers? Ever wondered what it might be like to serve with a leadership team at Summer Conference? Maybe God wants to take you deeper with Himself, while preparing you to have an eternal impact on youth. If so, apply to be on conference staff at Cru Summer Conference 2017. This life-changing experience could help make those desires become realities!

College staff arrive three days before high school campers.  Before campers arrive, staff members hike, hang out, and get poured into by Cru staff while building lasting relationships with other college students from all over the US!  College Staff will also join special teams such as administration, tech support, sound/lights, sports, and skits that utilize individuals’ abilities. Once high school students arrive, staff and students will enjoy five wonderful days packed with amazing speakers and worship. Most importantly, you will lead a small group of high school students!

Apply today!
