New Staff Orientation:
This is a 10-or-11-day training that includes: Orientation to Cru, and Ministry Partner Development training.

If you will only be attending New Staff Orientation, please be aware that you will need to take the required IBS courses (about 2.5 weeks) the next time they are offered. Keep in mind that this will necessitate travel to two conferences, which may result in a greater expense. For example, if you attend NSO in January, you would attend Summer IBS.

*** A 12 percent administrative charge is deducted by Cru from all support raised by a staff member. These funds are used for overseas expansion and to help fund the administrative services provided to staff by our World Headquarters. You will need to account for this when calculating how much support to raise.

The total estimated support need does not include any travel costs. Add your estimated travel expenses to calculate your individual estimated support need.
