Job Description

They say money doesn't grow on trees, but what if you could use your financial management skills in cultivating a situation to help impact eternity?"

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the church has been asking for more translation projects, but we’ve had to turn them down because we do not have an experienced person capable of managing the financial details and mentoring the accounting staff! As a Finance Coordinator, you will enable more people to encounter the Gospel in the language and form they understand best.

Today, over 2000 people groups, 150 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language or form, and we urgently need you to join the team!

Job Location: Bunia, Democratic Republic of Congo
