Facebook Group
The “NSO Spring 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 NSO conference team shares announcements.

This Facebook Group is a “Secret Group” to maximize privacy, so you must be invited to join. Please write to from the e-mail address associated with your Facebook Account. (Please use your address for all ministry correspondence; however, in this case, we need to invite you within the Facebook platform.)

Basic Schedule
For details about the dates and activities during NSO, see the Basic Schedule page.

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. The orientation is designed to make it easier to arrange schedules to attend New Staff Orientation.

Be aware that after the MPD training starts Tuesday, 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.

Worship for NSO
We are in need of one or two individuals to lead worship during NSO. It is a minimal commitment. You will have an opportunity to indicate your interest when registering online. We ask that all musicians bring their instruments. If this causes additional travel costs, please email to discuss options. You will receive additional information by email after registering online.

We are always in need of people who are willing to help with NSO Audio/Visual (A/V). We are looking for those who are willing to help with technical aspects during meetings, such as ProPresenter, PowerPoint, sound board, A/V, etc.) – in essence, babysitting the equipment during the meetings. Experience is helpful, but training will be available. You will have an opportunity to indicate your interest when registering online. If you have any questions or need clarification, please contact the NSO Team at
