Gospel for Asia's Staff
Serving Behind the Scenes

“Lord, what do you want me to do with this life you’ve given me?”

Millions of people in Asia are still waiting to hear the message of hope and forgiveness in Christ for the first time.

Thousands of national missionaries are faithfully ministering in unreached villages, sharing the Good News with men, women and children eager to know about the grace and mercy of God.

In addition to national missionaries’ role in bringing the Good News to the unreached, there is also a need for people in supporting countries to serve full time with Gospel for Asia.

By serving behind the scenes at Gospel for Asia’s U.S. office, staff members enable national missionaries to minister to those who haven’t been told about Christ. Each staff member has heard the Lord's call to work behind the scenes, ministering to both national missionaries in Asia and the Body of Christ worldwide. Our service is more than a job—it’s a ministry.

"After serving as a missionary in [South Asia] for six months, which was as long as I could stay with my American visa, I am fully convinced that my work here in Texas is having a far greater impact on people in [South Asia] than if I were personally serving there again." — Kris

We serve in many different roles.

Gospel for Asia’s U.S. office plays a vital role in bringing the Good News to unreached people. We raise awareness about the unreached, process donations, garner financial and prayer support for ministry in Asia, and report to donors about what God is doing through the ministry.

More than 70 people serve full time at Gospel for Asia’s international headquarters in Wills Point, Texas. Here are some of the roles we serve in:

  • Accounting
  • Broadcast media communications
  • Computer networking
  • Writing/editing
  • Direct mail/marketing
  • Facility maintenance
  • Graphic design
  • Human resources
  • Photojournalism
  • Print-room operation
  • Shipping and fulfillment
  • Travel coordination
  • Video pre/post-production
  • Web development

Our families are involved, too.

Spouses and children also have the opportunity to serve in different ways. They join in prayer meetings and write newsletters to support teams, and some even volunteer in the office. Spouses and children are just as much a part of Gospel for Asia as those who serve in the office.

Gospel for Asia is a great place for each family member to grow spiritually while also playing a vital role in reaching this generation for Christ.

Minimum Staff Requirements

Each staff member must:

  • Be a believer in Jesus Christ who adheres to Gospel for Asia’s
    Statement of Faith
    .
  • Have had consistent growth in godliness and spiritual maturity in their Christian walk over at least the past three years.
  • Have a passion to share Christ with those who don’t know Him.
  • Be humble in spirit and willing to serve where most needed.
  • Have good English communication skills.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent U.S. resident.

If you are married, your spouse must share the same calling, as you will apply to serve together (to the extent possible given family responsibilities).

We raise our own support so we can send more funds to the mission field.

Staff members are personally responsible for developing and maintaining our own teams of supporters who will contribute toward our individual salary and health-insurance needs.

Having our own personal support teams cuts down on Gospel for Asia’s administrative expenses, and as a result we can send more funds to support ministry in Asia.

Another major benefit of having support teams is the prayer support they provide, especially during seasons of difficulty.

Support levels are adequate to live modestly in East Texas and are determined by need and family size.

Gospel for Asia provides training, materials and a mentor to walk alongside each new staff member through the support-raising process.

"Through the process of raising support, the Lord showed me that He is completely faithful to provide for all my needs and in ways I didn't expect." — Jen
