Resident Mission Leader (BB-94081)
Encontrado en: Neuvoo GT
While WIND (When It Needs Doing), a partner organization of ACTION, has been serving alongside the Ixil people in Guatemala for more than 10 years and has had resident missionaries living in the community at various times, there are currently no resident missionaries living in the city of San Juan Cotzal.
WIND's indigenous Guatemalan ministry team is capably and effectively leading various ministries, but WIND desires to strategically place one or more Resident Mission Leader on the leadership team to strengthen and expand the work.
The desired length of service is one year minimum with a desire for two or more years as the Lord leads. A 7-10 day vision and exploratory trip would be planned before deciding on term length.
The responsibilities of the Resident Mission Leader could include but would not be limited to:
The Resident Ministry Leader's goals will be to:
*The WIND Executive Director and Founder, Rich Rice, lives in Washington state but generally takes four trips a year to Cotzal spending up to three months in-country each year to act as an adviser to the Guatemalan team and also to lead short-term teams that focus on medical outreach, children's ministry, pastoral training, and poverty and social justice initiatives. Since WIND is not a missionary-sending organization, the Resident Ministry Leader will apply and become a member of ACTION but report to and look for guidance from Rich, as the Executive Director. ACTION's Latin America Regional Coordinator and the ACTION USA leadership will also be involved in providing direction for the Resident Ministry Leader.
For more information on the Ixil, San Juan Cotzal, people group, see the information available on the Joshua Project website.
Please also note that WIND's ministries extend throughout what is known as theIxil Triangleand members of the pastoral training program journey to some of the most least-reached areas of Guatemala with the goal of making disciples, planting churches, and training leaders.
