THE OPPORTUNITY 

In 1970, a personal, one-on-one discipleship ministry began with a heart to disciple young Christians in biblical truth. Today, this ministry has flourished into what is known as WordPartners, a vibrant and growing organization that trains teams of global partners around the world to know and teach God’s Word. By the end of 2020, God has opened the door for WordPartners to work with 14,054 pastors in 63 countries throughout Africa, Asia, the Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, and North America.

The mission of WordPartners is to develop a team of global partners who encourage and equip pastors to teach God’s Word with God’s heart. Their focus is on developing local and national leaders through the transforming power of God’s Word who will themselves be able to train other pastors. . WordPartners longs to see the Word of God flowing powerfully through every church and to every nation. 

WordPartners is looking for their next President who has this same vision and commitment to God’s Word, and is able to lead the organization with excellence into their next season.
