Adventure Trailblazer

Though overseas work has grown rapidly in Asia in recent years, there are still many areas that are completely untouched by the Gospel—no churches, no believers, and no one even thinking about reaching them. Whether the barriers are geographical, political, or other, people of these areas can seem unreachable.

Our team regularly travels to key areas within Southeast Asia using adventure travel (hiking, SCUBA diving, surfing, kayaking) and community development (teaching English, public health training) as ways to build relationships and spread Father’s love and presence in the community.

We’re in need of self-starters willing to cross these challenging barriers of sometimes minimal/wilderness conditions to develop pathways to building relationships with undiscovered villages of people who have never heard the gospel.

Skills: 

Flexible - Schedules and plans change frequently and sometimes drastically. The ability to keep moving forward in the midst of environmental changes is a critical trait people must have here.

Self-starter — able to find or make opportunities for relationships, language learning, etc.

Self-motivated — perseverance and diligence in accomplishing tasks, studying language, etc.

Adventurous — willing to test and be tested by the unfamiliar

Wilderness Preparedness (optional, but extremely helpful) — You won’t always be “roughing it,” but being mentally and physically ready for these situations is an asset.
