Opportunity – Like to Get Your Hands Dirty?
Explore Mission Opportunities Using Agriculture
You grew up harvesting wheat or raising corn in America’s heartland. FFA or 4-H projects were the highlights of your childhood. You also have a collection of ribbons from the county fair. You love agriculture, a good farmers’ market or community garden scheme. Or maybe you just have a vision to meet practical needs and help people use local natural resources wisely.
Looking for ways to use your ag skills overseas? Pioneers may have a place for you.
- Tish and Alan teach sustainable farming techniques while managing an organic farm.
- Seth and Heather’s chicken farm provides jobs as well as meeting a market for good sources of protein.
- Chris manages an orchard and in so doing, facilitates relationships between Christian workers and unreached people of their area.
Others grow coffee, make cheese, or build bridges between the farmers and consumers of a wide variety of products.
These Pioneers and others are serving their communities while building pathways for evangelism or creating contexts for discipleship. Often they work shoulder-to-shoulder with local believers, living out the gospel in places where it has been little seen.
Use your agricultural passion and knowledge overseas while sharing the gospel.
Some build on years of experience in related careers. Yet others learn as they go, working with business advisors and local partners, especially in newer fields like aquaculture or ecological preservation. Many could use help developing markets or managing the bookkeeping and inventory control. Some also welcome short-term workers, from subject-area experts who can provide training seminars to interns who want to work alongside them.
