At Global Interaction we're committed to having teams serve specific people groups for the long-term. We don't want people to rush in and rush out. Spiritual and physical change takes takes time and commitment. We want our staff to spend time learning the language, gaining an understanding of the culture and getting to know people. Our long-term cross-cultural staff are normally appointed for a period of at least seven years.
There is currently a range of specific staff needs to be filled. But if you don’t quite fit these particular positions, there may still be a place for you.
