Summer/fall 2025. All appointees are required to attend a cross-cultural and language acquisition program and pre-field course/experience prior to deploying. 

General Information: 

Taiwan is a safe place to live and work, but the people this worker will engage with are primarily from a majority religion from Indonesia. Therefore, expect the work to be slow and challenging. Tenacity and perseverance are required.

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. 

The first year of language acquisition will be done in Indonesia in conjunction with the Indonesian field’s language learning policy. After the first year, Mandarin Chinese will be learned in Taiwan in an approved language school in a one-on-one classroom environment. 

Health Considerations: 

While there are cases of dengue fever and tuberculosis in Taiwan, these are few. Taiwan has excellent medical facilities for all ages. 

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: 

While a child’s education will be left to the discretion of the parents, international workers usually send their kids to an IW school in Taiwan that has an excellent reputation. 

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.

Whole-Life Health

As part of an evangelical denomination, we are committed to biblical holism, which is modeled and reflected through our work. Due to this commitment, part of the required qualifications includes optimal emotional, spiritual, and physical health. These will be assessed during the application process.

Importance 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.
