14) The Last Bit: Best Online Site for Finding Mission Opportunities

This past week, a Brigada participant named Debra wrote to see if we still operated the age-old service called Brigada-Opportunities. At the time, a prospective worker or recruit could write a simple email address (in conjunction with Brigada) and a bunch of us would be monitoring that email group (which was actually an open-ended list-serve address, of sorts) then (in an ideal world) someone from the group would guide the prospective recruit to a mission field opportunity that fit his or her needs to a “T.” It was a great idea — in that it was free, easy to use, and promoted cooperation between several mission organizations and services. Of course, it was also difficult because, since it was free, the entire group of helpers was just doing it out of the goodness of our hearts. Like many such ideas, it ran its course and finally went out into space. But Debra had seen it referenced, a bit like … discovering an old Voyager Spacecraft still orbiting in outer space. (Remember this?

 

When I saw Debra’s note, I remembered Intercristo. When I searched for them on the web, I actually came across their contact information (of all things) in a VERY old book we did years ago called, “Resources for Missionary Recruits.” (Their contact info at the time was Intercristo Computer Matching Service.[P. O. Box 9323, Seattle, Washington 98109; Tel. 1(800)426–0507. Obviously, that’s long out of date by now.) Intercristo apparently merged with ChristianJobs.com in 2009.

But try as I might, in my web searches tonight, I couldn’t find anything exactly like the old “Intercristo” used to be. That surprises me. As interconnected as the web is today, one would THINK that such a service would exist. Does it? Is ChristianJobs.com the closest thing to it? If you were a mission recruit, where would YOU go to find a listing of all the best and greatest mission opportunities in the world? (Got an answer? If so, please just click “Comment” and let us know. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.)

 

7) Teaching English Online as a Ministry

There are dozens of companies that you can teach English online for. One of the best for ministry purposes is Enlai (or Native Camp). This website connects you with mostly adult Japanese language learners. About half of these students just want to talk with an English speaker, so you have twenty-five minutes to get to know and hopefully have spiritual conversations with them, while getting paid!

The idea is to take prospective global workers who seek to be intentional about the Kingdom and place them in custom internships with marketplace ministry field people. It’s not for everyone — but those who value meshing business as mission (BAM) with disciple-making movement (DMM) strategies will love it. And those who want to invest in the next generation will look forward to empowering its fruit. The timing and duration are customized based on the participant and multiple unique field hosts. If you’re interested, please pray — then fill out a profile at…
