  • Jan 13, 2020
Full time Executive Management Nonprofit-Christian Ministry

Job Description

We all love hearing good news. But how can you hear such news if no one tells you? How can you hear if you are Deaf?

As the Associate Sign Language Regional Director, you will provide administrative oversight/support to the sign language teams and staff in your region, enabling them to go forward in the work of Bible translation so even the Deaf can have access to the Good News.

Today, over 2,100 people groups, 114 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages--including at least 355 sign languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people see it in their own sign language, and we urgently need you to join the team!

Job Location: We are looking for individuals who are interested in serving in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Eurasia, and the Americas!

Every day is different! One day you might plan a workshop, review a budget, and design publicity or informational materials. Later you could work with a Deaf team to write a progress report and interface with other departments.

This job might be for you if…

  • You are organized, creative, and efficient.
  • You enjoy people, a leader by example, and an expert at managing your team members.
  • You have earned at least a high school diploma and have some experience related to this position.
  • You are comfortable in cross-cultural situations.
  • You are familiar with basic record-keeping, office, and administrative skills.
  • You are teachable and willing to learn.

It’s a bonus if…

  • You have previous multicultural or cross-cultural experience.
  • You know American Sign Language.

Important Note

In becoming a member of a faith-based organization, you will receive extensive training and resources in partnership development so that gifts given to the preference of your ministry account are provided for your salary, benefits, and ministry related expenses.

Even though this job is located overseas, you must be legally authorized to work in the United States as per U.S. employment laws.
