Are you a missionary returning from the field for a season? Are you a retiring missionary looking to invest your retirement for the glory of God? Are you looking for a way to continue to walk in obedience to seeing the Great Commission fulfilled even in retirement? We at Global Frontier Missions are looking for experienced, veteran missionaries to pour into the next generation of missions candidates.
One of the great tragedies of our age is fact that there are still entire people groups that have yet to hear the good news about Jesus Christ. At the time of writing there are approximately 6,989 unreached people groups, groups that lack enough believers able to evangelize the rest. Of these, 1,510 of these are unengaged unreached people groups meaning there is no known strategy to reach them and no one has taken the responsibility to do so yet.
Another tragedy is that many missionaries are not lasting on the field. 71% of missionaries return home early for preventable causes. Close to 50% of missionaries aren’t making it past their first term. After two years many come off the field and don’t return. Much of the time this attrition is from preventable reasons. We find this simply unacceptable.
As a retiring missionary, would you consider continuing to advance the Kingdom of God by investing in the rising generation of missionaries? Could you help curb this trend of missionary attrition by mentoring or teaching younger missionaries at one of our Missionary Training Schools? Could you contribute to quality missionary pastoral or member care? Could you help reduce the number of unreached and unengaged, unreached people groups by mobilizing new missionaries or welcoming internationals among the diaspora? Because of your experience, you have the opportunity to be a strategic, positive influence on the State of the World.
If you would like to learn more about how you could take part in any of these opportunities please take a moment to submit a contact form. Additionally, you can find more about our staff opportunities here. You can even stay with your current missions organization and be seconded to Global Frontier Missions to make the transition as smooth as possible. We have been praying for retired, veteran or returning missionaries to come on board and join our team, so you might be an answer to those prayers!
