Thailand : IT Consultant (OMF)
TEAM is partnering with OMF International in Thailand. OMF’s growing ministries in east Asia include everything from church planting, youth outreach, and medical ministries to teaching and working among minority people groups.
Is it your passion to use ICT for the glory of God; but are unsure how? Are you a software engineer, a computer science student or otherwise good with programming? At GlobalRize you can use your IT skills to help the churches worldwide! We are rolling out our products all across the globe; so your contribution will make a difference in the lives of thousands if not millions of people! GlobalRize helps Christians grow and helps churches multiply, (http://globalrize.org/).
We are very flexible in the ways you can get involved and it certainly does not have to be full-time!
Remote Worker: Help us out part-time from the convenience of your own home. Many of our jobs can be done remotely, as long as you have a good internet connection! You could either help us out once-off with a certain project, or commit for example one day a week for an extended period of time.
Short Term: Come visit us in Chiang Mai in Thailand (there are worse places to be!) and help us for at least a month. It provides both an interesting cultural experience, as well as a taste of what your IT skills can mean within God's mission. It also provides a great start for helping us out in other ways!
Long Term: If you are called by our Lord Jesus Christ to use your IT skills for His mission on a full-time basis, you may come and live here in Chiang Mai as a missionary with your own personal support. Of course we will help you in this process, also in cooperation with our mission partners. Interested applicants can apply either through TEAM (see below) or OMF.
