Are you passionate about the Bible and working with children? We are looking for someone to join our field staff’s existing “released-time” education program in southeastern Kentucky. This program gives children the opportunity to go off school grounds for a short period to learn about the Bible and Christian faith. This is a vital co-curricular program that provides public schools with character education and gives parents the option to include Bible education in the regular education of their children. The established Bible education program would serve as an anchor for the missionary to engage in additional ministry in the area. While this position requires raising full support, the candidate may be able to join a team and share some ministry expenses.
