Below are more details about Cru’s High School Ministry part-time and full-time staff opportunities that are available.
Part-Time Field Staff
You can work directly with students in a local Cru ministry in a part-time role, which is especially great for college students or recent college graduates who want to try out the ministry.
The role of a “Part-Time Field Staff (PTFS)” includes working with students and in evangelism and discipleship activities on a part-time basis (i.e., 10-29 hours a week) for an indefinite period of time. This role is not for people interested in an office position.
Salary and ministry expenses for the Part-Time Field Staff position are covered through funds raised by the individual. Because this position is part-time, medical/dental benefits are not provided.
Get your feet wet with full-time ministry as a Cru intern. Our internships last one year (two years maximum), and you can work directly with students in a local ministry or work in a role at our National Office in Orlando, Florida. In some cases, an internship can allow a person to work in a combination role with some direct field ministry and some administrative work at our National Office or at a field ministry location.
Salary, ministry expenses and medical/dental benefits for the Intern position are covered through funds raised by the individual.
STINT is a one-to-two-year “Short-Term International Internship” offered in places like Hungary, Russia and East Asia. These are especially great opportunities for college students, recent graduates or those who are mid-career to take one or two years off to serve internationally in ministry.
Many high school students around the world don’t have an opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel. You could be part of a team to help start or accelerate a movement to high school students in another country while also growing in your own faith.
Be sure to indicate interest in a STINT with Cru’s high school ministry when applying. The deadline for submitting completed applications is March 1.
