Language Expectations:

The successful applicant(s) will receive one year of intense language study followed by ongoing language and cultural acquisition. 

Health Considerations:

Well-trained doctors and medicines are generally available, though serious illnesses or medical emergencies are best handled in Jakarta or Singapore.

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 fundraising is available.

Important Clarification:

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.
