We provide a way for the public to participate in ARM with assurance of biblical integrity, stewardship, transparency, and effective communication.



A typical day for the Sponsorship Associate includes:

  • Answering phone calls and keeping good records.
  • Talking with our Ugandan staff about sponsor questions & issues.
  • Responding to lots of emails.
  • Setting up new donor & sponsor accounts and pledges.
  • Sending introductory information & child profiles to sponsors.

  • You take ownership of your job.  When you see something that needs to be done you do it, even if no one asked.  You thrive in a busy environment.  You always pay attention to the details.  You enjoy challenges and provide creative solutions to problems.


  • Learning is a way of life.  You always want to improve yourself and the processes & services we provide.  Change is a good thing and it doesn’t scare you!  In fact, you want to be part of it!


  • You communicate clearly.  You listen.  You write well. You speak eloquently.  You like to explain things and are comfortable communicating in various ways.


  • You see sponsor issues as opportunities to help people, not as problems.  You are willing to work some evenings to better meet our sponsor needs.


  • You want to resolve issues, not bury them.  You are willing to do what it takes when there is conflict.  You respect authority.  You are a positive influence on the people around you.


  • You are computer literate.  You can use Excel very well.  You are proficient in Office Suite and Outlook, too.
