Professional Opportunities with Cru

Use your areas of study or developed skills to build and accelerate the mission of Cru as we work to give every person in the world a chance to experience, hear and respond to God's love and good news.

Wherever you serve with Cru, you'll be developed personally, spiritually, and professionally as you engage in God's mission for the world.

Working in one of Cru's offices, you could be using your skills in business systems, communications, conferences/trips/events, creative, finances, fund development, human resources, justice/humanitarian aid/legal, marketing, music/performing arts, partnerships, prayer catalyst, research & development or technology to advance God's kingdom.


With Cru's year-long internship program you'll grow and hone your skills as you work on national projects alongside experienced professionals. Participate in life-changing community, living and working with your team.

You'll spend time each week on personal and spiritual development with one-on-one coaching. At many office locations, you'll also have the opportunity to be involved with a local Cru ministry.

These year-long internships in Cru offices require raising funds to support your work. We will train you in how to develop the funding you need for your internship.

Intern with Cru this summer

Grow professionally. Grow in your faith. Be trained and equipped to share Jesus's love through your skills and move the Great Commission forward!

"The [headquarters internship] gave all 15 of us the tools and training to be spiritual multipliers, able to confidently and effectively share our faith with anyone anywhere. We learned to disciple in humility and truth, and to effectively use our skills in and out of the office to glorify God. This was more than an internship – this was a community of growth, vulnerability and transformation."
