• Business, NGO, office administration
• Single or couple


Required Qualifications:

Biblical Characteristics Desired:

Timeline for Deployment:

Summer/fall of 2024. Following appointment, and once fundraising goals and other qualifications are met, the appointee is required to attend a cross-cultural and language-acquisition program and pre-field orientation prior to deploying.

Ideally, as soon as possible—preferably in January or February 2024 so the IW can learn the budgeting process for a new fiscal year.

General Information:

This position is based in Phnom Penh and will involve working in the C&MA Mission Office at least half of the time. Cambodia is part of the developing world, but Phnom Penh is developing rapidly.

Language Expectations:

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.

Initially, the candidate(s) will have a home stay with a Cambodia family for at least a month. Then, they will proceed to G2K Cambodia Language School. In addition to learning and taking over bookkeeping responsibilities, the candidate(s) will also have about half time language study for at least the first two years.

Health Considerations:

The candidate(s) should be in good health. Phnom Penh has good medical care options available.

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:

International Christian schools are available in Phnom Penh.

Compensation Package

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.

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.
