Language Expectations:

Language is an essential part of ministry. Those who do not know the language will attend language study for one year. The goal will be to speak, read, and write the language at a functional level in order to mentor, teach, and train others.

Health Considerations:

This city has quality health-care facilities and well-trained doctors; most medications are readily available. Serious health issues are typically handled in Jakarta, the current capital, Penang 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 team objectives, depending on the nature of family roles, children’s needs, etc.

Children’s Educational Plans and Options:

There are Cambridge assessment schools and local Christian schools in the city. Homeschooling and international boarding schools are also viable options.

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.
