Mission takes all sorts of forms for WEC. Direct evangelism is still a vital element of our work, of course, but reaching unreached people often demands creativity and flexibility, so we need a huge breadth of skills and perspectives to achieve our vision. If you’re interested in joining us, there are several ways you could find your place in WEC …
Evangelism and discipleship
Evangelism, discipleship and church planting are alive and well within WEC. If your passion is to simply share the good news and help people flourish in their walk with God, there are opportunities for you, all over the world. We’ll help you find a placement that suits you, train you before and during your time in the field, and support you throughout.
If you just want to dip your toe into the world of WEC, a short term mission is perfect. Many of our long-term workers started out with us in exactly this way. You’ll get a taste of cross-cultural mission, see more experienced workers in action, and gain a clearer idea of your skills and calling.
Whatever your skill set, WEC has a role for you. Whether you’re a doctor, a chicken farmer (yes, really!), a teacher or an experienced business professional, you can use your skills in the field, train others, and get involved in evangelism and discipleship alongside your vocational work.
Do you love to learn? In several nations, there are unique opportunities for mission if you enrol as a student at a university, especially if you study the local language. It’s easy to build relationships with other students and share the gospel in that context, and knowledge of the language will stand you in good stead for ongoing mission after you’ve completed your course.
Life can be complicated. If you’re serious about joining WEC but can’t step away from your existing responsibilities, then why not join us as an Associate? This flexible option allows you to make a major contribution to WEC’s work, as and when you can, so you can still fulfil your existing commitments.
