The “IBS & NSO Summer 2019” Facebook Group is an essential tool for connecting with other New Staff members (e.g. sharing rides to/from the airport, etc.). It will also be the main way the NST conference team shares announcements.
This Facebook Group is a “Secret Group” to maximize privacy, so you must be invited to join. Please write to email@example.com from the e-mail address associated with your Facebook Account. (Please use your cru.org address for all ministry correspondence; however, in this case, we need to invite you within the Facebook platform.)
For details about the dates and activities during NSO, see the Basic Schedule page.
Cru19 US Staff Conference
This summer, you will also be attending the Cru19 US Staff Conference. The US Staff Conference begins the evening of July 19 and ends the evening of July 25. You are free to leave the morning of July 26.
Go to the Finances page for estimated costs and charges for the various components of NSO.
Employment and Payroll Documents
You will be receiving an email from someone on our Personnel Records Team. They will give you information on anything you might need to bring related to your hiring as an employee of Cru or for your transition from your current status with Cru to supported, full-time staff.
If both husband and wife are joining staff with Cru, it is important and strategic for both to attend and participate in all the sessions. There are no exceptions to this. If you need to leave during any of the New Staff Training Conference, you must receive permission in advance of the start of the conference. Please do not make any outside plans during the NST Conference without first emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be aware that after the MPD training starts, it will be an intense week with a lot of information to cover, creating long days with very few breaks and very little free time.
Senior Staff members who are marrying/married to New Staff members will be a part of the New Staff Training conference team. You will need to arrive on Saturday, June 15, 2019 by 3 p.m. (no additional cost will be incurred for arriving early). You will receive additional information by email in late May.
Worship Team for NSO

Drums/percussion and a keyboard will be provided. We ask that all other musicians bring their instruments. If this causes additional travel costs, please email email@example.com to discuss options.
