Use your skills and experience to help facilitate Bible translation
Overseas and at home, the need for administrators continues to grow as Bible translation and literacy work expand into new countries. At present, administration is one of the most critical needs within the organisation.
Administration roles vary considerably, but may involve:
- Carrying out management functions such as planning, organising and coordinating staff within the context of a cross-cultural team
- Supervising and overseeing the training of expatriate and national staff
- Managing the day to day running of a regional office to enable language work to continue
- Writing funding proposals for Bible translation and literacy projects
Many of the skills and qualities that make a good administrator here in the UK are essential to the smooth running of a Bible translation team. Many situations call for imagination, ingenuity and initiative, as well as a deep sense of commitment to the Lord. If God has given you administrative or management skills, then these can be invested in taking his word to hundreds of people groups around the world.
