aXcess: AMH Director in Bangkok
The AMH (Asia Mosaic Home) ministry programs include a home away from home, a gathering place, a resource point, and a community center. AMH hopes to develop two more ministry programs: a training ground and a member care station. In 2020, when COVID-19 hit the world, the AMH temporarily closed. This became a golden opportunity for AMH to reset and rebuild. Join aXcess and serve in the world’s most visited city, serving IWs, guests, and locals in creative ways.

Timeline for Deployment:
Summer/fall 2025. All appointees are required to attend a cross-cultural and language acquisition program and pre-field course/experience prior to deploying.
Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand. It is a large costal city with roughly 14 million people living in a 600-square mile area. Like other large cities, you can find diverse people living throughout. Bangkok is a safe city to live as a foreigner and is affordable.
Language is an essential part of ministry. Those who do not know the language will attend a language study program. The goal will be to speak, read, and write the language at a functional level in order to mentor, teach, and train others.
Private health care is of a great standard, which has earned the country its reputation as a destination for health-care tourism. Hospitals in Bangkok are fantastic and are less expensive compared to the U.S.
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.
Children’s Educational Plan and Options:
There are many options for children’s education—from homeschool to international schools for middle and high school students, as well as boarding schools for older students.
The successful applicant(s) will receive a full compensation package with the expectation that, once appointed, efforts will be made to raise a portion of support costs through the applicant’s network of friends, family, local church, or other resources. Information on support costs will be made available upon application. Training and/or coaching in fundraising is available.
Applicant(s) 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 has begun or is completed.
