Are you inspired by the idea of getting God’s word to the 800 million people who still have little or none of it in their mother tongue (or heart language)? Does the idea of getting up in the morning and using your creative and technical skills to support such a task put a smile on your face?
If so, we’d like to talk.
JAARS is a 65+ year old mission support organization that exists to make Bible translation possible-especially in the most remote and difficult places on earth. We do that by providing on-the-ground partners around the world with transportation, technology, media and training so they can focus on translation, language development, and life transformation.
You? You’re that rare person with a passion for God’s mission here on earth, a well-developed but always-learning engagement with digital communications (i.e. you get websites, social media, digital publishing, responsive design...), excellent writing skills, collaboration instincts, and a self-starter/hands-on mentality.
If that IS you, take a look at the job below ... and let us know if you’d like to explore the opportunity to do what you love, and what God has gifted you to do, here with JAARS.
