Required Qualifications:

Biblical Characteristics Desired:

Responsibilities:

Timeline for Deployment:

Late summer 2022. All appointees are required to attend a cross-cultural and language acquisition program and Pre-Field Orientation prior to deploying.

General Information:

CIA World Factbook—Cambodia

Work and Living Environment:

The successful applicant will work on a small team alongside national believers in villages throughout Cambodia.

Status of Christian Witness:

The Joshua Project—Cambodia

Language Expectations:

Language is an essential part of ministry. International workers receive one year of intensive language and cultural study followed by a year of half-time language study within the context of ministry. The goal will be to speak, read, and write to share the good news of Jesus.

Health Considerations:

Good health is required since Cambodia is a developing country.

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:

The unreached geographical areas are located too far from Phnom Penh to access the international schools there, but boarding schools are available and homeschooling is legal.

Compensation

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 and family, local church, or other resources. 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.
