Avant Employment Application

Avant Ministries is an interdenominational, multinational missionary sending organization that has focused on planting and developing churches in the unreached areas of the world since the 19th century.

More than half the world’s population does not know Jesus,
and 2.5 billion have never even heard His Name! 

Our Mission is to glorify God by helping others enjoy His presence through planting and developing new churches in the unreached areas of the world.

Our Vision is to make a difference in time for eternity by rapidly planting and developing churches where none exist.

We are a faith mission comprised of some 500 missionaries ministering in 50 countries, under girded by a dedicated home office staff on the north side of Kansas City, Missouri. We call this home office the ISC (International Service Center).

No matter the specific role you are applying for, the ideal candidate:

  • Is an authentic follower of Jesus Christ
  • Is enthusiastic about Avant, committed to its mission and vision, and persistently optimistic about the growth and success of the organization.
  • Knows how to blend work and faith.
  • Will work hard, knowing the results are in God's hands.
  • Embraces planning, goal setting, and accountability.
  • Has effective communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Will view this opportunity as a place of service and ministry as well as a way to make a living.

At Avant,
  • We respect and value balance in the lives of our staff. We know that work is only one of many spokes that make up the wheel of our everyday life.
  • We are a team that many consider a family.
  • We diligently strive for open communication with each other.
  • We value Care, Community, Creativity and Collaboration.
  • We start each work day by praying for Avant missionaries, the mission, and each other.
