Assist the Chief Engineer in providing reliable and timely technical services for the station broadcast equipment.

Wondering if you can use your engineering skills in missions? Wonder no longer!  Here’s an open door to impact the world with the hope of the Gospel using high-powered electronic equipment.  As you help every day with repair and upgrades of RF control/distribution systems and transmitters on our stations in the Asian Pacific or southern Africa, you’ll play a key role in bringing the Word of God to hearts in need of change, encouragement and discipleship. How does it get better than that? Let’s chat.

Please note: This position is a supported/sponsored missionary role (not a direct hire opportunity), so you would develop a team of partners who provide financially for your full salary and benefits as a part of this role. We do provide training, resources, and coaching to help missionaries reach these financial support goals!
