As a member of a faith-based religious organization, you will be considered "supported staff."

“Supported Staff” Overview

Almost every one of our 3000 staff members, no matter what their role in our organization, is a "supported staff" member — meaning they develop a personal partnership team in order to fund their work and personal expenses. Partnership teams typically consist of personal friends, family members and supporting churches.

Involvement can look different from one person to another depending on the circumstances but should include relationship building and growth in personal spiritual vitality.

If you’re looking to serve for less than six months, less than 10 hours a week, or in a seasonal capacity, please contact Wycliffe Associates for your next steps.
