Timeline for Deployment:

Summer of 2023. All appointees are required to attend a cross-cultural and language acquisition program and Pre-Field Course/Experience prior to deploying.

Language Expectations:

Language is an essential part of intercultural ministry. You will receive two years of intensive language and cultural study. The goal will be to speak, read, and write the language at a professional level in order to mentor, teach, and train up national church planters. 

Health Considerations:

This city has good health care facilities. Transportation, apartments, sidewalks, and public buildings are not usually handicap-accessible. Physically challenged applicants may find it difficult to live here.

Expectations for Spouse:

Spousal roles vary based on the spouse’s gifts, training, and abilities, as well as the needs of the team. It is expected that both spouses will be meaningfully involved in meeting ministry objectives, depending on the nature of family roles, children, etc.

Information on support costs will be made available upon application. Training and/or coaching in fund-raising is available.

Important Clarification:

Applicants should be aware that serving in the international world often requires a higher degree of grace and flexibility. For example, overseas teams can be suddenly and unexpectedly impacted by illness, government decisions, financial realities, team changes, or other factors beyond the team’s control. The challenge for applicants is that these factors can sometimes necessitate the sudden redefining of a position, which may take place before, during, or after the application/interview process.
