A team is going to Europe and another to Western Asia to show the love of Jesus to migrants who are being neglected. These Hope Teams will deploy rapidly, starting training by 2018, and will serve for two years.
Be the Feet, Hands, and Voice of Jesus
Hope Teams cherish the opportunity to see neglected migrants begin a relationship with Jesus Christ. As a team member, you'll:
- Go to them. Your presence can bring the hope within you, which is Christ.
- Serve them in His name. You’ll help meet physical, emotional, and spiritual needs in real ways.
- Share the hope of Jesus with them. He is able to transform them in this life and for all eternity.
What It Takes
Ideal servants for this compassion-based ministry would be resilient people who are passionate to share Christ’s love and his Word cross-culturally, while simultaneously learning the challenging needs of migrant life. Team candidates should:
- Love Jesus and his church
- Display spiritual, emotional and relational maturity
- Handle the details of life independently
- Demonstrate self-discipline and sacrifice for priorities
- Work without having constant oversight
- Manage change and diversity successfully, and persevere in the face of difficulty
- Have previous positive cross-cultural experience
No one is perfect in all these areas, but people who are already growing and demonstrating these characteristics will be best prepared for the challenges Hope Teams will face. There are limited openings, so applicants will be considered for placement based on best fit with developing teams.
You Won’t Be Alone!
Your entire experience will take place in a team environment. Together you will:
- Learn a new language
- Participate in pre- and on-field training
- Experience cross-cultural development
- Be mentored by a seasoned cross-cultural worker
