Missionary Opportunities

Have you ever considered trading your paved road in the States for a dirt road in a developing country? Has the Lord prompted your heart to serve orphans overseas? We are looking for people to GO and SERVE as missionaries with Lifesong all over the world.

As missionary Jim Elliott once famously said, “He is no fool that gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.” The truth is simple. You can’t out-sacrifice God. As you take the love and truth of Christ where it is not, your faithful Heavenly Father will daily–continually–meet your needs.

In addition to our current missionary needs (see below), we are always looking for staff to serve at various locations around the world. Specifically, these needs include accounting, administration, counseling/social work, and facility management/maintenance. Interested in learning more? Please submit your resume and cover letter. We’d be happy to share more details about each opportunity.
