Member Care and Staff Development Specialist
Description
Role Summary

What in the world is ‘Member Care’? Glad you asked! It’s someone who has a heart for coming alongside of Christian workers who are using their skills in direct furtherance of the Kingdom.  As they cope with the stresses of living cross-culturally, work/life balance, challenges in their home and workplace, you may be the person to bring encouragement and resources so they can go the distance. Help them unfold their God-given potential and thrive where God has planted them!

Please note: This position is a supported/sponsored missionary role (not a direct hire opportunity), so you would develop a team of partners who provide financially for your full salary and benefits as a part of this role. We do provide training, resources, and coaching to help missionaries reach these financial support goals!
