The application is a measure of prevention to ensure the person applying have good intentions. There are many ministries and movements online and in real life. Some of them are not biblical. Even Christian websites have non-Christian readers who think they are Christian as Christian has long ago lost its meaning. The application itself is then examined by our core group who are also volunteers. They read your application from their life experiences. This core group are trusted friends who will keep your information private. All applications are filed.
Please consider filling out the application for one or all of the following: Blogger, Online Social Media Missionary, or Community Volunteer.
Consider partnering with us through financial support. See here for more information.
We hope you understand why our application process is necessary. We want to keep the trust you have put with us and give you back trusted leaders vetted by us. You can be over 80 years old or a teenager and be an effective voice for Christ.
You can be a missionary in a different organization, a pastor at a small church, or a ministry leader of a small group, and write or work for us. These are all volunteer positions. If accepted as a blogger or Community Volunteer, you may, in your bio, include any links to fundraising, your church, or your website. You can even write under a psuedonym.
Social Media Missionaries are kept confidential. Their work is sensitive, and identifying them as missionaries may compromise their mission.
