Ministry Programs Support Worker

Since 1980, Arizona has resettled almost 90,000 refugees of which the majority have come from unreached people groups (People groups with 2% or less of a Christian presence). Our missionary teams build relationships with refugee neighbors who belong to unreached people groups from around the world. We demonstrate God’s love by empowering refugees through language acquisition while also meeting their spiritual and physical needs. We seek ways to share the Truth of God’s Word by telling stories of Jesus whenever we have the opportunity. The ultimate goal is to start Gospel story groups that birth churches in homes.

Ministry Programs Support Workers help propel our ministry progress forward by focusing and serving mostly in several English Classes each week, which is the means to meet refugees. They do not lead or facilitate classes, but they do sit next to refugee students each week at one or multiple English class sites around the city in order to help encourage students and assist them in their language learning.

Outside of English classes, our ministry team has other programs with options for you to help with including sewing classes, business options and ideas for refugees, refugee kids programs, art classes, or anything else that you have a passion for that would fit with our ministry vision and help you to build friendships with refugees. This ministry role requires a love for adult refugees and their families and seeks to build relationships with them in order to genuinely show them love and introduce them to Jesus through sharing intentional Bible stories.

Ministry Programs Support Workers should have a passion for sharing and demonstrating the gospel among Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, and other peoples from the corners of the world. Ministry Programs Support Workers will serve on a team with other missionaries who live near unreached refugee peoples in the Phoenix metro area. They will experience the life of a missionary by engaging unreached refugees with prayer, love and Truth. In short, our missionary teams teach English, run other programs, make consistent weekly home visits, help meet physical needs, and start Gospel storytelling groups.

The environment is incredibly diverse and cross-cultural. The people groups we focus on are from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Myanmar, Congo, Sudan, Somalia, Nepal, and Afghanistan. Class Support Missionaries will be coached by missionaries on a daily basis and will receive ongoing training designed to give missionaries new tools, accountability, practice, encouragement and community.

Skills: 

Our mission is to create disciple-making movements among unreached refugees in the USA. If you can smile, like to meet new people and want to engage people from another culture, this is a great opportunity to experience the true missionary life. The most essential quality is communication skills along with a calling to make disciples among unreached people. It’s also helpful to have a flexible personality and an openess to learn how to build cross-cultural relationships. A commitment to team and community is also an important quality. Due to the diverse nature of languages, someone wanting to use their language skills or begin learning Arabic, Burmese, Somali, or Rohingya would be great but not required. Our program is designed to equip and train Goers to reach out to Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu people groups.
