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. National missionaries are faithfully ministering among these people, sharing the news of God’s grace and mercy, but they need a team of “senders” to stand behind them and equip them for ministry.

By serving behind the scenes at GFA’s U.S. office or any other support-country office, GFA staff members link “sending” brothers and sisters in their own country with the workers in Asia. Together, they enable national missionaries to minister to those who haven’t heard 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.

We serve in many different roles.

GFA’s U.S. office plays a vital role in bringing the transforming grace of Jesus to people in Asia. We raise awareness about the needs on the mission field, 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 GFA’s U.S. 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 some even volunteer in the office. Spouses and children are just as much a part of the GFA team as those who serve in the office.

The GFA community is a great place for each family member to grow spiritually while also playing a vital role in touching this generation with Christ’s love.

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 use more funds for ministry projects.

Staff members develop and maintain teams of supporters who will contribute toward GFA’s home team staff needs. GFA provides training, materials and a mentor to walk alongside each new staff member through the support-raising process.

Having staff support teams offsets GFA’s personnel expenses, and as a result, enables us to utilize more resources to support the work in Asia and to voice the message of the ministry. 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.

First Steps

If you believe the Lord may be calling you to dedicate your life to helping men and women in Asia discover Christ’s grace by serving with GFA, here are the first few steps you should take:

  1. Learn more about GFA. Our website is filled with free downloadable materials to better acquaint you with our ministry and vision.
  2. If you haven't read K.P. Yohannan's book Revolution in World Missions, make sure to order your free copy as soon as possible.
  3. It is generally wise to seek counsel from those in spiritual authority over you, such as your pastor and others. Ask them if they see the Lord's calling on your life for this kind of full-time ministry.
  4. Set apart some time to fast and pray for God's wisdom and direction.
  5. Let GFA know about your interest in joining staff. Fill out a preliminary application form, which will be directed to our staff recruiter.
