Join the Team
If you are a committed disciple of Jesus Christ, willing to do what is needed, humble enough to serve without personal gain, and teachable enough to listen, learn, and grow, there is a place for you at Encounter!
Staff Members & Full-Time Volunteers
Preparation: Encounter provides ongoing support as incoming Staff Members & Full-Time Volunteers raise a team of ministry partners, prepare for a life-changing international move, and equip themselves spiritually, emotionally, and physically for missionary service in Guatemala.
Service: Staff members begin with a three year commitment and come willing to serve in a variety of ways. They teach, serve in the office, develop media, mentor children and youth, maintain facilities, prepare for events, and beyond.They also provide ongoing input and innovative ideas to grow and develop the ministry of Encounter. Full-Time volunteers serve on a year by year commitment stepping out to fulfill critical roles in the ministry and helping to bring Encounter into new seasons of greater effectiveness.
Professional Development: Serving with Encounter does not require any specialized education or training, but Staff Members & Full-Time Volunteers take part in on-going professional development from before they ever step foot on the mission field. Full-Time Volunteers work alongside Staff Members on professional development tasks aimed at creating a more effective team of ministry workers. We want everyone at Encounter to continually grow, develop, and mature as missionaries, educators, and disciples of Jesus Christ.
