Recently our Paid Staff Recruiting team saw 2 people hired to work as writer and editor with the Jesus Film. They will help tell the story of how Jesus is impacting people around the world with our donors and partners.
But before they could be hired our team had to engage with LinkedIn to help present Cru and these opportunities. Also on the website and in 2 local jobs boards, we post these openings. picks them up and promotes them nationally. So many people hear about our openings on LinkedIn or on Indeed. They then apply through our online application in Oracle’s PeopleSoft HR Recruiting solution. Connie (above in pink) reviews applications before sending them on to the hiring managers. Steve works with and gives leadership to how all these systems work together to bring people onboard with Cru.
Raeli and Jeannette, the other 2 staff pictured above, were hired as a result
They will be sharing stories like this one:
“A film team had gone into a village in West Asia — an area where it was difficult to share the gospel. Film teams and evangelists who work there often face stiff opposition and resistance.
As they were setting up the projection equipment, people began arriving and asking, “Where is the man? Where is the one who calls Himself Isa? We have come to meet Him.” (Isa is the great prophet mentioned in their religious book.)
The film team tried to explain, “He is not (physically) here. But He is in the movie we are about to show you. You are at the right place!”
One of the villagers was insistent, saying, “But He appeared to us last night. My niece was lame, and Isa healed her.” The man turned and pointed, “There she is. She (walked) with me.”
“And this is my uncle. He was deaf, and Isa touched him. Now my uncle can hear!”
“Isa told us, ‘Come here tonight because here you will meet Me.’ So we want to meet Him!”
Realizing that something wondrous had happened, the team thoughtfully replied, “Yes, you are about to meet Him. Please sit down and watch.”
They started the projector. The scene where John was baptizing his disciples in the Jordan River came on the screen. A man approaches John walking through the crowd. You only see his back, then his feet moving through the water.
The next scene reveals His face. It’s Jesus. Instantly, the people jumped up and started screaming and shouting, “That’s Him! That’s Him! That’s the man who came to our village last night!”
They could hardly contain themselves with excitement. They were meeting the healer who had come to them where they lived. The once-deaf man heard Jesus speak the Word of God in his language. The lame niece watched Him heal others, just as He had healed her.
They watched as Jesus sacrificed everything, including His life, and then rose again so they might be forgiven and made new. And as they heard the Word, they met Him in their hearts.”
It is so amazing that we get to be part of the great work that God is doing around the world through the Jesus Film and the Cru ministries. As we see God use our work to raise up laborers, some who go and some who serve and tell the stories, we rejoice that Jesus is made known and lives are being changed. Thank you for partnering with us until the whole world knows and experiences the salvation of Jesus!
