Job Description

If you never heard, you could never know. And if you could never know, then you could never act. Help people to hear - and impact eternity!

As a Vernacular Media Specialist, you would help reach illiterate speakers of language groups around the Americas with the Bible using innovative technology.

Today, over 2,000 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, and we urgently need you to join the team!

You would work closely with an experienced mentor, honing your skills in media development until you qualified as a consultant.

Job Location: Anywhere (includes short-term travel throughout the Americas)

Every day is different! One day you might develop and teach media-related workshops. Later you could consult on projects and needs, networking with other organizations. Another day you would coach and encourage teams you’ve trained in media production.

This job might be for you if…

  • You’re willing to learn Spanish.
  • You are independent, innovative, and self-motivated, but also work well on a team.
  • You have a passion for mentoring trainers and love to teach.
  • You’re excited to travel around the Americas (2 months accumulative travel per year).
  • Working cross-culturally speaks to your heart.
  • You’re comfortable with the computer and social media and stay on top of trends.
  • You have a basic mechanical aptitude.

It’s a bonus if…

  • You have previous training in electronic, communications, or music.
  • You speak an intermediate level of Spanish.

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 could be located overseas, you must be legally authorized to work in the United States as per U.S. employment laws.
