West Asia / Other / 1-11 months, 12-23 months, 2+ years, Consultant / Job ID: 1374

The church in this city is responding in love to the flood of refugees coming from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran. Refugee ministry is a team effort, using a community center and home visits, seeking to minister wholistically to the needs of these people, in Jesus’ name.

Refugee ministry is available for those willing to come and serve. People of all nationalities and ages can help in this work. No experience or special qualifications are needed. There is a lot of people contact, so being outgoing and friendly and open to cross-cultural friendships is important. By touching, in Jesus’ name, the lives of those devastated by war or persecution, you can help them come to know Him and His healing and transformation. Volunteers can help in significant ways, whether short- or long-term, through language help, art, sports, music, drama, administration, technical support, home repair skills, visitation, listening, prayer, etc. Knowing Arabic, Farsi or Dari is a plus, but not required.

We need people with a servant heart, who can care for people. You need flexibility, a love for people, and a desire to share Christ in word and deed. The person must depend on God, and have a solid spiritual life. They need to be flexible, adapting to a dynamic work environment and changing refugee needs and profiles. We want to start new ministries to refugees, so if the person were an initiator or leader-type, that would be a plus. The person should be a team-worker, with good people skills, and be willing to learn the language and culture of the refugees they serve.
