New Staff Orientation and Cru19:
This is a 3 week training (approximately) that includes: Orientation to Cru, Ministry Partner Development training, and the Cru19 US Staff Conference.

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 July, you would attend Winter IBS.

* A Senior Staff/New Staff couple will pay $875 for MPD Tuition.

** 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.
