Role Summary
Can you draw people's minds and hearts into a project through a good story? Might God be calling you to tell His story to those who otherwise might not hear? You may have the opportunity to work with TWR-Africa's cross-cultural, global marketing and communications team to research and write articles, assisting with graphic design and layouts.

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!
