Here at JAARS, we have a wide variety of opportunities in multiple departments. We need everyday, hands-on skills, as well as technical, logistical, and professional skills. Our positions are for volunteer or supported staff, and occasionally, paid employees. Below you can learn more about each option.
“We love being able to use the skills and experience God has built into us as part of the JAARS team to make Bible translation happen. We are touching the world from Waxhaw! Amazing!”

Volunteers fill many key full- and part-time positions, and all jobs are open to them.
What does “supported” mean?
A supported staff person is one who has partners to prayerfully and financially support their ministry and living expenses, either in part or in full.
Usually supported staff are considering full-time, long-term or career service, and need to raise funding for benefits like:
You might be retired and receiving a pension. Or just need to supplement your income. You would need to already have health insurance. We’ll be glad to talk with you about options!
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit Christian ministry, we have very few positions that are paid. Work is done almost entirely by volunteers and supported staff.
Generally, positions are paid when unique skills and experience are required, timing is critical, and/or the nature of the position makes it difficult to raise support. When we do have a paid position, we look for someone who has the job skills and will consider the job a ministry.
Our fellowship is an 11-month, merit-based, professional opportunity that provides entry into a first career position, cultivates emerging leaders, and unleashes the world of missions.
