Where Will IBS Be Held?

Bible Study Methods and Intro to Christian Theology are held in connection with New Staff Training. Currently, New Staff Training is held at the El Caribe Hotel in Daytona Beach, Florida. 

Transportation

Note:  You’ll find life at NST a bit easier if you have a car while in Daytona Beach.

Arriving By Car

  • Via I-95 South: Head south on I-95 to Hwy 92 East (International Speedway Boulevard), then take Hwy 92 east, crossing over the Inter-coastal Waterway (Halifax River).  Turn right at the beach on Highway A1A (Atlantic Ave.) heading south.  The El Caribe is located about 2 miles south on the left.  Look for the pale green towers with the El Caribe hot air balloon logo.
  • From Orlando: Take I-4 east to I-95 north.  Take I-95 north to the first exit for Hwy 92 east (International Speedway Boulevard), then take Hwy 92 east, crossing over the Inter-coastal Waterway (Halifax River).  Turn right at the beach on Highway A1A (Atlantic Ave.) heading south.  The El Caribe is located about 2 miles south on the left.  Look for the pale green towers with the El Caribe hot air balloon logo.

Arriving By Plane

It is very convenient to fly directly into Daytona Beach International Airport (DAB), but often tickets are cheaper flying into Orlando (MCO), Sanford (SFB), or Jacksonville (JAX), even including cost of transportation to Daytona Beach.

  • From Daytona Beach International Airport: A taxi from the Daytona Beach Airport to the El Caribe will cost approximately $25.  Use our NST Winter 2017 Facebook group to communicate with others who are flying into the Daytona Beach airport to see if someone wants to share a taxi or rental car and save money.
  • From Orlando International Airport: If you fly into Orlando International Airport (MCO), you can take the DOTS Shuttle from the Orlando International Airport (MCO) to the El Caribe. You will need to make your reservations at least 2 days in advance. You can reach DOTS at (386) 257-5411 or at www.dotsdaytona.com. You can get a better rate if you book a shuttle as a group. Also, it can be cheap to share a rental car with a group. Use our NST Winter 2017 Facebook group to communicate with others who are flying into the Orlando airport to see if someone wants to share a shuttle or rental car and save money.

Arriving By Greyhound Bus

  • The Greyhound bus station in Daytona Beach is 2 ½ miles from the El Caribe.  Taxi service is available.

Facebook:  The “NST Winter 2017” Facebook Group is an essential tool for connecting with other New Staff to (for example) share rides from the airport.  It will also be the main way that the Conference Team shares announcements.  It is a Secret Group to maximize privacy, so you must be invited to join.  Write to join.us@cru.org from the e-mail address that is associated with your Facebook Account.  (Please get in the habit of using your Cru.Org address for all ministry correspondence, but in this case, we need to invite you within the Facebook platform.)

If you have any questions, please email us at join.us@cru.org.
