Location: Wycliffe Bible Translators USA Headquarters – Orlando, Florida

Description: Wycliffe Bible Translators is committed to ensuring God’s Word is accessible to all people in a language that speaks to their heart. Of the over 7,000 languages in the world, less than 700 languages have a complete Bible and almost 1,700 languages have no Bible translation work started. Your involvement can help change this!

To sustain the current Bible translation work in over 2,000 language communities and to meet the needs of the future, Wycliffe’s Finance department not only needs highly qualified and trained staff to handle complex finances from vendors, partner agencies and suppliers from around the world, but they also must care for the finance needs of Wycliffe staff currently working and for those moving into retirement.

The Retirement & Ministry Support Coordinator helps provides oversight of a significant portion of the financial care for our staff. However, it does require you to come with your own financial support in hand as a volunteer, or you need to be willing to raise sufficient funds through Wycliffe to cover all living costs. Wycliffe provides training and coaching to help people raise sufficient funds, so you don't have to do this on your own. (Note: If finances need to be raised, this process can take a number of months - usually 6 to 9 months - to secure from interested family, friends and churches. Sometimes, it can be done in less time and sometimes it takes more than 9 months.)

Perhaps you wonder if you would be able to raise needed financial support. Well, almost every person who applies and is accepted to Wycliffe for such positions are able to raise the needed financial support. It does take some effort, but it is very doable!!! Please watch this video for some practical thoughts on this. The video was created for teachers, but it applies to all workers.
