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

Will you accept the privilege of introducing Jesus to a people who have never before had the chance to hear his good news?

A passion for social and environmental justice? Are you motivated and eager to learn? Do you like a good laugh? If your answer to all this is a resounding YES, let’s talk. 🙂

Our team is looking for teammates who are spiritually mature and growing in a relationship with God. Candidates should be humble, teachable, flexible, motivated, light-hearted, able to live and work in a pioneering environment, have a capacity for hardship, and be passionate about God and his Kingdom. We desire teammates who can contribute meaningfully to our management and consulting company. Our current business focus is promoting eco-tourism and arranging tours around our region with a client base from the international backpacking community. Such skills would include business, finance, administration, public relations, marketing, writing, photography, videography, design, customer service, networking, resource investigation, and a love and interest for people, social justice, conservation, culture, trekking, and camping.
