Staff Categories

Interested in sharing the Gospel full-time?

Our full-time staff is required to raise full financial support to cover salary, benefits and expenses. A small portion, 10%, of each staff member's support goes directly to Crescent Project to help support the ministry. All of our staff has full access to essential services from the organization, such as training on how to raise support, a personal support raising coach, professional development opportunities, and more. All staff meets regularly with their direct supervisor who will help them set goals, create ministry strategies, and provide general oversight and advice critical to growing their ministry. Each year, our staff attends our National Conference, Sahara Challenge, and annual Staff Retreat in order to stay connected with our Crescent Project team. Each of these events allows us to provide additional training to staff and are great ways to encourage each other and leave feeling refreshed and inspired

Feel called to reach Muslims for Christ, but not looking for a full or part-time ministry?

Affiliates

Affiliates are people dedicated to sharing the Gospel, committed to raising enough support to cover the cost of their ministry, and excited about working with Crescent Project! Each Affiliate commits to raising $450 in monthly support, either from donations or personal financial support, to cover their ministry expenses. Like our full and part-time staff, Affiliates have an official Crescent Project email address, business cards, and ministry account. Affiliates meet regularly with their direct supervisor who will help them set goals, create ministry strategies, and provide general oversight and advice critical to growing their ministry. Additionally, Affiliates are required to attend National Conference, Sahara Challenge, and our annual Staff Retreat in order to stay connected with the Crescent Project team. Each of these events allows us to provide additional training and is a great way to encourage each other and leave feeling refreshed and inspired.

Advocates

Serving as an Advocate is a way to be connected to our ministry without having a formal employment relationship with Crescent Project. Advocates are important because they can help educate people about our ministry, may assist in local or regional events, facilitate trainings and Bridges studies in their area, and more.  A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlining the responsibilities of each Advocate is signed on an annual basis. There is no support-raising obligation as an Advocate, but we do require attendance at National Conference and that each Advocate attends the Sahara Challenge at least once in order to receive formal training and be better equipped to fulfill their role. Additionally, we love having our Advocates join us at our annual Staff Retreat whenever possible!
