Full time Bible Trans/Literacy Missionary Lang. Dev. Nonprofit-Christian Ministry

Job Description

Pastor Todd Stocker once said, “Knowledge isn’t life changing. The application of knowledge is.”

Today, over 1600 people groups, 114 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!

As a Scripture Engagement Consultant, you would work with people in West Africa to help them truly apply and engage with Scripture in their own languages, using a variety of innovative media, programs and resources.

Job Location: Burkina Faso or possibly Côte d'Ivoire

Every day is different! One day you might train and mentor local colleagues in Scripture Use. Later you could provide leadership and advice to new programs. Another day you might develop new Scripture Use materials and check others.

This job might be for you if…

  • You are fluent in French and are willing to learn the local language.
  • You have the ability to assess a situation and provide relevant suggestions within a short timeframe.
  • You are trained and love to mentor people and teach groups.
  • You are passionate about helping people learn to access Scripture.
  • Handling and facilitating funding for projects doesn’t scare you.
  • You have had coursework in Scripture engagement, missiology, language and society, basic linguistics and language learning, and anthropology.
  • You have previous multicultural experience.

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.
