Job Description:

GRAPHIC DESIGNER / U.S. Center for World Mission




We exist to identify and solve problems in frontier mission—problems that prevent or hinder organizations, churches and individuals from reaching the thousands of remaining unreached people groups throughout the world who have no access to gospel, where there is no viable, indigenous church and no significant, cross-cultural outreach. We envision a world where the Kingdom of God is actively growing among every tongue, tribe and nation.


We are seeking highly skilled and motivated people to build a media production dream team that combines technology, media and creativity to raise awareness, inspire involvement and deliver solutions to real-world problems in frontier mission.
