Area Missionary in Northwest Wisconsin

Title

Area Missionary in Northwest Wisconsin

Summary

We are looking for an innovative and people-centered individual or couple to bring the light of the gospel to unlit places in northwest Wisconsin. In a fast-moving society where those outside the mainstream are often overlooked, we need witnesses to the gospel who take the time to assess an area, find out where the greatest needs are, and develop creative strategies to meet those needs. This is a position for someone to continue and extend the work of a soon-to-be-retiring InFaith missionary. Though there will be significant room for the candidate to apply his or her unique gifts and skills to reach into the lives of often overlooked people, it would be important to continue running the current 4 to 7 VBS ministries and assisting with a week-long camp for youth in the area. The candidate will initially be able to work closely with the current missionary as they take over specific ministry points that support and extend the work of local churches and individuals, as well as create new ministries in the area. This position requires raising full support.
