REGIONAL DIRECTOR – TEXAS

Full-time,  Support-based or Self-supported Staff

Resident of Texas

 

The Perspectives Study Program (also known as Perspectives USA) exists to awaken the Church to pursue the fulfillment of God’s global purpose within every people for His glory.  We accomplish this through education – specifically a 15-lesson course rooted in a coherent, biblical paradigm.  This course is run in as many US locations and demographics as possible.  Perspectives staff and volunteers assure that our ministry is relational, financially sustainable, focused on locally based mobilization, and is continuously improving and growing.   

The course first launched in 1974 following the Urbana Missions Conference of 1973, as a way of providing strategic education to young adults who were interested in global mission service.  Since then, the US program has grown into a mobilization movement of nearly 250 classes involving over 8,000 students each year. The volunteer network includes over 2000 active participants and nearly 1000 annual instructors each year.
