An invitation for software developers & professionals to invest in the peoples of Eastern Europe.

With experience in secure payment platforms, a Pioneers team member has established a software development company which currently employs twenty locals. An open door now exists for field workers to come work part-time in management roles, or in teaching Western culture to facilitate helpful client relationships (clients are currently predominantly located in Australia, the UK, and the US).

The founder longs to create a business culture with impact far beyond the daily grind of work hours. Many of the country’s young, talented IT professionals end up leaving home to work in the West. They have a hunger and a longing for more – more that can only be found in Jesus. Apart from investing in relationships with local co-workers, you could use this door to reach into universities, mobilise local believers, locate unreached people groups in the city, and trust God for a church planting movement.

City Snapshot: The second largest city in the country and a growing hub for tech companies, young professionals, and IT specialists. Nearly 1.5 million people, with half of the population under 20 years of age. Over seventeen national universities and many more technical and private universities. Considered a cultural centre, as it hosts numerous music and film festivals yearly and is home to theatres and art galleries, as well as numerous authors.

UPG Snapshot: While the country has a growing body of evangelicals, much of the population remains orthodox. There are 26 UPGS in the country, including Tatar, Azerbaijani, Uzbek, Roma, and more.  Specifically in this city, there are over 8,000 Jews yet to know the hope of their Messiah.

Potential Roles to Fill

  • Client Account Manager
  • Software Developer
  • Project Manager
  • Teaching English language and culture, etc.


Useful Skill-sets 

  • Experience in start-ups
  • Team-builders
  • Culture & Language Professionals
  • Knowledge of the following: JavaScript, NodeJS, Angular, ReactNative, and more.

Positions are paid, whether part-time or full-time, according to the cost of living for locals in the city. Foreigners may want / need to raise supplemental support.

A team in the heart of the Amazon is looking for 15 new teammates. Could you be one of them?

Currently based in the town of Benjamin Constant, Brazil, this team is working with tribes and villages along the Javari and Amazon Rivers. The team operate out of the larger town along the rivers and make trips to the tribes for evangelisation, planting churches and training indigenous church leaders and missionaries. They primarily use Spanish and Portuguese for the ministry as most people in the area have a good understanding of one or both, with those they disciple as local leaders then training others in their tribal dialects.

In addition to traditional church planters, the team are looking for:

  • Accountants
  • Pilots
  • Mechanics
  • Community health workers
  • Anyone with a practical skillset

Outside the town, which has about 20,000 people, the area is very isolated. Supplies are delivered to the region by barge and occasional small planes. The team travel to the villages primarily by boat, and occasionally by plane.

If this type of work in this type of environment gets you excited, we’d love to talk with you. Get in touch with our mobilisation team today!

We are looking for a homeschool teacher (either 2 single women or a married couple) for the 2019-2020 school year. One child on our team is in need of home education due to his mild special needs. Someone joining our team in this capacity would be an answer to prayer as it would enable the parents to continue in language study and ministry in the community. A curriculum is in place, but can be adjusted as needed. Although an interest in teaching or early education is preferred, we are looking for someone…

  • with a big heart to engage with our son and help inspire him towards a love of God, others, and learning
  • patient with children and a fun-loving personality
  • with the heart of a learner

This would also be an invaluable opportunity to learn language, engage in the local culture, and travel. We want to walk alongside you in this journey as you see and experience God in new ways by living and serving overseas. If you cannot commit to a full 9 month academic year, we would still love to have a conversation with you.

Calling all Extroverted Cheese-Makers!

Use your love of all things cheesy to help bring the love of Jesus to North Africa.

A team in North Africa is looking for teammates who have an entrepreneurial spirit and a willingness to try new things in order to bring the love of Jesus to their city. At the moment, they are running a professional skills training centre, and while they’d love to have people join them in this business, they’re also eager to welcome entrepreneurs of all kinds.

The team is located in a coastal city that is a little less conservative than the rest of the country, and is more urban and touristy, so just about any business idea could work. In particular, they’re looking for people to start businesses in:

  • Photography
  • English Teaching
  • Fitness/Health
  • And yes, CHEESE-MAKING!

Any idea is welcome, but more important is the type of person the team is looking for. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter, willing to learn two languages, an extroverted, relational, out-of-the-box thinker. They will be interested in influencing and shaping what’s going on in the work, and will be thinking long-term – without an end date in mind.

The opportunities are endless, really! If you think God might be calling you to this type of ministry, let us know! We’d love to talk through the possibilities with you.

 

Candidates will need to raise financial support to join this ministry.

NB: The opportunities listed on our website are only a small percentage of the available opportunities. To find out about more possibilities, please don’t hesitate to contact our mobilisation team.

Launch into Ministry in the Balkans

Launch Teams in the Balkans are looking for new team members who are ready to explore what God has for them in the region.

Many areas are moving to the Launch Team model of welcoming new field workers to the field. Launch Team members will spend two years learning the local language and culture while exploring ministry opportunities in the area. The hope is that teams would form within the Launch Team who would then be sent together to start new ministries in other parts of the region. During the two Launch years, Launch Team members will be fully engaged in ministry activities as well as studying language and culture.

The team’s purpose statement is: Our team exists to catalyse multiplication at all levels of disciple-making and church planting activities, and to do this in cooperation with local churches. Along the way we want to raise the standard of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, while simplifying what it means to be a church. We also seek to simplify the process of being a disciple by equipping everyone with simple, reproducible skills and methods that can be easily learned and taught to others, believing that 2 Timothy 2:2 holds some clues for multiplication of disciples and leaders.

The team welcomes people with any skills or gifting, but particular opportunities in the area currently include:

  • teaching english (or another foreign language)
  • inter-religious dialogue
  • journalism
  • performing arts (music, dance)
  • sports
  • advocating for life through a local pro-life project
  • peace and reconciliation activities
  • working with youth in local churches
  • IT
  • medical
