Help Wanted

Director of Personnel

Mandate is looking for an experienced cross-cultural worker to take the position as Director of Personnel. This is a long-term commitment. The Director of Personnel is a full-time, supported position with primary responsibility for the care of all DCI workers from initial contact through recruitment, training, sending, and repatriation.

Mandate is an evangelical organization which sends Christian workers to areas of the world where traditional missionaries cannot go. We send these workers in open, legal, development roles such as education, medicine, business, agriculture, community development, human trafficking, etc. We expect all our workers to be as overt as possible in sharing their faith. As expressed in our vision statement “Mandate works to grow God’s kingdom among the least reached peoples of the world through the relationships and proactive witness of development-oriented Christian professionals.” We are currently working in South and Southeast Asia.

The person who takes this job will be expected to provide their own financial support, which will include salary, housing, medical, retirement, and ministry funds. This amount will be set by the Mandate Board of Directors in line with the personal/family needs of the applicant.

Mandate does not have a central office, so the person taking this position will work from a home office. If this is in the United States, no relocation is necessary.

We are hoping applicants for this position will already have full missionary support and be able to sustain this support. If not, we will give the applicant time to raise full support before taking on any responsibilities. This woman or man should have significant cross-cultural and ministry experience, as well as leadership experience or potential.

Anyone interested can contact David Tucker, Mandate’s executive director, at for a copy of the full job description and additional information about Mandate, as well as with any questions you might have. You can also go directly the Mandate’s website at

We are producing a video-based series of Old Testament Bible stories and lessons for children of the majority world. We need to finish the series, but we are struggling with inconsistent funding and needing partners who have complementary skills. We need a Storyteller to share the incredible things that God is doing—here at our studio, as well as with our partners around the globe. Are you good at recognizing and telling stories, adventurous and can “rough it” a bit? Are you good at using social media and technology to share those stories? If this is you, let’s talk!


Director of Marketing and Development

As an organization we are struggling with lack of personnel, inconsistent funding and needing partners who have complementary skills. We know that there are people and organizations who would love to share the blessing—if they only knew about us. But we are focusing on what we know best and are already stretched too far. We need someone to help us form and develop strategic, missional partnerships. Or as someone put it so well: develop a photo of our mission that is so compelling, others will want to jump into the picture.


Website Developers / UX Designer

We are operating with older websites that no longer fill our needs. We need people who can build a web application / site on a CMS system (Not WordPress) writing plugins and modifications that will allow all of the content to be managed simply and efficiently by Viña staff (who don’t have web development knowledge). Develop our website to provide a Netflix-like experience for watching episodes in many languages. As well as a checkout style download option, as well as other materials and information. We could also benefit from a mobile app that interfaces with websites.


Media Specialists

We are looking for qualified people to assist in original production, and localization of the Deditos video series. The needs include audio engineers, video editors, special effects artists (Adobe AE), a traffic manager and a digital asset manager. Personnel are also needed for teams to record audio for video in locations around the globe. Some of these positions could be summer internships, others part-time or full-time, some could be done remotely. All would involve some training onsite at the Viña studios to prepare for the unique needs of serving minority peoples around the globe.


Traffic Manager

We are looking for a traffic manager to allow Viña’s Executive Director and the production staff to focus on being creative. This person would keep track of all phases of media projects to ensure nothing falls through the cracks, and things are moving smoothly. This would include scheduling staff, generating status reports and recommending process improvements. The person would work closely with the ED to learn the role. This is an administrative position, supporting several media production teams, but an understanding, or a willingness to learn about media production would be needed.
