Long Term Opportunities
Do you feel God calling you to the mission field? Use your skills and gifts to contribute to one of our multicultural teams. Encompass will help you every step of the way – from defining your direction and raising support to choosing a location and connecting with experienced mentors.
Invest 1-4 years in the Great Commission by contributing your skills and giftedness to assist and accelerate the growth of the movement. Encompass will develop a language and ministry training plan appropriate for your length of term to equip you to be effective in reaching people cross-culturally. Our requirements are flexible and focus on the needs of the ministry.
Multiple Term Missionaries
Long term workers serve as the backbone of Encompass' ministries. Their ongoing ministries allow shorter-term ministries to accomplish strategic results. Through worship-driven commitment, multiple term missionaries invest years in a people group. They develop an in-depth understanding of the culture and the relationships of mutual trust which make significant ministry possible.
Encompass will work with you and your church to confirm God’s call on your life and explore the match of your gifts and abilities. We will also help determine the best combination of education, experience, and training to equip you to effectively minister long-term. Our requirements are flexible depending on your intended ministry. You will start as a Term Missionary and, through several years of on-the-job training and mentoring, build your competency.
Special Assignment empowers you to serve part time in a non-traditional role. Encompass will develop a specific, strategic plan for you to use your unique skills to assist a missionary team. You use regular, short term trips to minister on site and continue to contribute at home. The missionaries integrate your ministry into team planning and strategy. We also develop a support level to allow others to support your ministry financially.
