Preferred Qualifications:

Health Consideration:

Bandung has pharmacies that carry a good selection of medications, but outside consultations for prescriptions are needed. Hospitals provide an inconsistent quality of care, but better care is available in Jakarta. However, depending on the level of care required, the care offered does not meet international standards. That quality of care is available in Malaysia and Singapore, which are both easily accessible by short flights. 

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. 

International workers will receive one year of intensive study followed by a second year of personal tutoring if needed to attain full proficiency. The goal of mastering the language is a life-long process that greatly enhances the ministry and ability to reach the people of Bandung for Christ. 

Expectations for Spouse:

Spousal roles vary based on the spouse’s gifts, training, and abilities as well as the needs of the team. Both spouses are expected to be meaningfully involved in meeting ministry objectives depending on the nature of family roles, children, etc. 

Spouses are considered equal partners on the team and must share a clear calling to cross-cultural ministry. The couple/single will be expected to be involved in hospitality, personal witness, discipleship, and mentoring. 

Children’s Educational Plan and Options:

Elementary-level classes are available in Indonesian and in bilingual schools nearby. Junior and senior high students have the option of two international schools in the city, one Christian and the other secular, but distance from the facility and cost will be possible factors regarding viability. There is also the option of boarding at Dalat School in Penang, Malaysia. Homeschooling is an option at all levels. 

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.

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.
