Using your gifts in finance and accounting to serve the 20,000 Cru staff serving in the global ministry. It is through the finance ministry that projects have money to operate and that staff receive their paychecks. The finance ministry helps ensure integrity and good stewardship of the financial resources God has given.
Conferences and Events
Conferences are times that our ministry is truly lived out. In these designated times and moments, we take the opportunity to give a visual representation of the pieces we pray for. The ministry of conferences and events is simply to bring a vision to life, thereby changing the way participants live their life.
Effective communication goes beyond a good idea or words on a page. Graphic designers take imagination and creativity to package the message of our ministry in a visually pleasing way. Christ centered design helps reach people, make sure the gospel is understood, and impact lives with the love of Christ.
Modern day life is spent digitally. We can achieve nearly all of our tasks without moving from our bed. Our lives are often spent using a digital interface, and our ministry has to continue to serve this ever changing lifestyle. Web Design serves to keep our ministry in touch with those we are attempting to reach. With a dedicated Web Design team, we open our capacity to reach many more than we would ever meet meet in person.
Optics are everything. How we are seen and our reputation can either enable or prevent the gospel from being shared with those who are in most need. The marketing ministry promotes and facilitates our ability to adequately represent our organization to those who we are trying to witness to in a manner that is sensitive, relative and opens the door to gospel conversations.
Digital video platforms offer millions of hours of content due to their drastic draw and reach of the global population. Videography ministries produce resources to engage with and train ministry audiences and staff, all in an easily accessible and appealing format. This ministry moves the conversation further along in a fun and engaging way.
Photos have never been easier to take than now. Practically everyone has an effective camera in their pocket. However, taking a good photo has so much more behind it. It requires patience and passion, as well as the technical knowledge and confidence of how to focus on the story you are trying to tell.
Truly an all encompassing piece of our lives; communications serves the role of making sure we are not only talking, but are being heard. Their ministry is to make sure that our vision is being lived out in our words. In many ways, communications is the ministry’s “North Arrow”.
Globally, we serve so many different people who are in so many different places in their spiritual journeys. Due to this, we need to have an accurate way of understanding how our methods are working globally and to offer a real time report to our ministry leaders to make decisions to reach the needs of their local ministry context. This ministry aims to utilize tools to interpret, simplify and explain the information leaders need to see as well as to highlight potential oddities in trends that can be found.
Programmers, Developers, problem solvers, and more. Our movements, in this increasingly technological world, need digital approaches to be able to reach everyone. In each context, however, needs are very specialized and specific. In this role, you will use and develop apps and help deploy systems to create ways forward for ministries around the globe.
The use of technology in ministry would be largely non-existent without the expertise of technological staff caring for and equipping field staff with these tools. In this role, you will learn of current limitations, help guide individual staff toward solutions and work alongside others to help develop viable long-term solutions.
TECHNOLOGY: PRIVACY AND SECURITY
While technology enables us to reach more people with the Gospel, it also opens up potential liabilities and risks to our long-term operations in any country. Our products need to keep our staff, donor, and ministry contact information safe. Additionally, there are constant cyber threats to our systems. Each of these roles requires a modest degree of privacy or cybersecurity background and will likely lead to even more research during the summer.
