Are you #1, #2, or #3?
1. A MISSION LEADER
OMF, TEAM, Frontiers, YWAM and other agencies are represented at the U.S. Center for World Mission. Would your agency want to have a representative here?
This place is yours. It exists to aid agencies in mobilization and reaching unreached peoples. We serve agencies in:
- Recruiting Contacts
- General Promotion
- Member Support
- On-Field Training
- Pre-field Preparation
- Member Care
- Donor Materials
- Other areas
Often, representation for a mission agency comes through missionary families which need a time in the states--for training, health or family reasons.
Agencies represented at the USCWM benefit greatly as their members compare notes with others from different fields and organizations trying out different methodologies.
2. A MISSIONARY
You have learned important lessons on your field. Is it time for you to develop those lessons in cooperative research for the benefit of others?
You have seen firsthand the shortage of laborers. Is God calling you to help influence others to go?
Perhaps you feel broken and poured out. Our community shares your values. We invite you to find healing and health here.
The USCWM complex is home to over 70 ministries. Your gifts and skills can enable you to retain your support through strategic service here--in an intergenerational team serving the whole missions cause. We value your experience and insights.
Housing close at hand and flexible schooling options are a special benefit for families in our ministry. Your education can continue both formally and through frequent reports from every corner of the globe.
3. AN AVAILABLE NORTH AMERICAN BELIEVER
Where do you fit into God's plan to disciple all nations? The "front lines"? Mobilization? Unsure?
Whatever God has for your future, a year or two at the USCWM may be your best possible investment for increasing your life-long value to God's kingdom. For 20 years, the USCWM has been grappling with tough issues in the development of mission strategy and mobilization, providing an apprenticeship context which has shaped the thinking of many mission leaders.
When you serve at the USCWM, you join an intergenerational team full of missionary experience. You build lasting relationships, think creatively about God's purpose, and develop many valuable skills.
