Member Care Support Worker for East & Central Europe
Join WEC's new mobile recruitment team formed to reap a harvest of workers out of the spiritual renewal taking place across the former soviet Eastern Europe!
We are working in partnership with vibrant evangelical churches and WEC's existing ministry branches in Southern, Central, Eastern and Northern Europe in order to inspire, mobilize, train, and send cross-cultural workers, and to help them care for and support the workers they send abroad.
Lead the member care department to interview, mentor, prepare and support these new workers as part of this new WAVE branch.
You will travel in person and work online, meeting the new workers and their church leaders, conducting interviews, organising orientation, and helping the churches to learn and practice good member care, while their church member serves cross-culturally abroad whether short-term or long-term.
Qualities & Gifts Sought
You love to care and nurture individuals and families who have a passion for mission. You have experience in cross-cultural mission and in mentoring and discipling Christians. You enjoy providing training in member care to whole church communities.
Some ability in Russian or German or other European languages would be an advantage.
You love the Lord Jesus and want to be involved in enabling more cross-cultural mission to happen through God's people.

About Southeast Europe
Southeast Europe offers unique opportunities and challenges for mission.
Orthodox Christianity is in decline in this region and the arrival of people from different nations is providing a new context to reach the unreached. WEC aims to respond to these opportunities and challenges, and to mobilise East Europeans to reach the unreached on their own doorstep, as well as to go to new cultures and join our teams around the world.
WEC is currently ministering in Albania, Greece, North Macedonia, Bulgaria and elsewhere in the Balkans. Each team has been involved in outreach and church planting, as well as in community projects and reconciliation, for several years. We have also been recruiting in Eastern Europe especially Poland, Ukraine, Romania, etc.
One team is running a free medical service and children's programmes as well as looking for more ways to reach their community. Another team has a ministry centre and is exploring their options in reaching out to more parts of the neighbouring community. Another small team has an established reconciliation ministry, and there are opportunities among refugees in partnership with established churches.
WEC is prayerfully planning and anticipating reaching out to more new locations. This includes church planting and discipling in more districts in cities and towns not yet reached.
Contact us to explore and pray how you might fit in.
