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

Several teams in North Africa are looking for energetic, adventurous people to join them.

After more than a century of faithful work in the region, there are now believing groups in every major city. Praise God! But with a total of less than 5000 active Christians, there is so much still to do! Many towns of 100,000 have no known Christian and no workers. Our challenge is to go beyond the major cities and make the Good News of Jesus available to all.

Long term, it is not difficult to set up in business, there are widespread needs for rural and health development, there are opportunities to offer healthcare (though not to practice hands-on medicine) and there is always a need for teachers.

Other opportunities/needs include:

  • IT Consulting
  • Teaching art or music
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Tourism services
  • Agriculture
  • Martial Arts

Team members must be willing to learn at least two languages. You must also be willing to spend much of your time building relationships and spending time with local people. Having professional skills and experience as well as the ability to work autonomously is also a plus. There are currently six teams in the area, so there’s a lot of opportunity to find one that fits you and your gifts.

One-Year Internship: Business as Mission in South Asia

Region
South Asia
Ministry

Duration
Mid-Term
Religion
Muslim

Use your business skills to reach the lost in South Asia.

We are a business team with the vision to see reproducing house churches established in the Muslim communities of our city. We have identified business as an excellent way to gain access into these closed communities and bless them on a multitude of levels. Our ultimate goal is to see transformed lives and communities.

What is the vision for the one-year internship?

  • Join the existing field team to engage the local community in relationships through a handicraft export business.
  • Gain practical church planting training and Business as Mission (BAM) training with an experienced field team.
  • Learn language and culture while serving the community.
  • Be mentored by a more mature member of the field team.

What are the basic qualifications?

  • You must be at least 21 years old and available to spend at least six months on the field.
  • Because of both cultural issues and the makeup of the existing team, single men will be ideal for this role. However, single women are also welcome, providing they are willing to split their time between helping care for children and helping with the business. Couples are also encouraged to apply.
  • The preferred time of service is from August to July, but other timeframes will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • The team are looking for people who have experience in product design, graphic design, social media marketing, photography/videography, sales/marketing, quality control, management, accounting/finance, writing, nursing/medical skills or other skills that would contribute to a small business.

    The team will definitely consider people who don’t necessarily have the particular skills listed above.  These skills would be HELPFUL but not required.  However, a willingness and humility to do whatever needs to be done is required.

  • A humble, teachable spirit and commitment to grow in God’s grace.
  • A love for the gospel and commitment to being continually impacted by its power.

What ministry activities will the intern be involved in?

Our team has a handicraft export business. We work with Muslim artisan men in silver and brass jewelry, gemstones, textiles, wood, and handmade paper. We also work with uneducated Muslim women who have previously had no source of income. Often these women are not allowed to leave their homes for cultural and religious reasons, so we train them and offer them work in textiles and jewelry that they can make in their homes. We give them fair wages in a caring community. We’ve helped them establish their own cottage industries and trained them in management skills. Because we work side by side with these Muslim artisans, we are able to share truth with them regularly and identify which people are interested in going deeper. Our ultimate goal is to see transformed lives and communities.
