Ethno-Arts Specialist

Ethno-Arts Specialists help communities reach their goals through local arts and cultivate worship in specific cultural contexts.


  •   Using art as expression
  •   Seeing others engage in artistic activities
  •   Understanding people deeply through the lens of their own cultures


  •   Background in the arts
  •   Exceptional ability to relate to people (especially across cultures)
  •   Teaching ability

Ethno-Arts Specialists apply their creativity and insight into culture to enable local peoples to develop culturally relevant expressions of worship to magnify the impact of Scripture within a community.  Ethno-Arts Specialists often come to the ministry with training in the areas of music, visual arts, acting, dance or storytelling.  They work with local Christians to encourage artistic creations with local artists to respond to their community’s needs in areas such as Scripture use, literacy and community development.

Most of our teammates raise support on behalf of Pioneer Bible Translators for their ministry roles. Support raising is not about money — it’s about prayerfully inviting people everywhere to participate in what God is doing to fulfill His mission.

We provide training to help you:

  • Gain confidence in communicating the Biblical foundation for living on support, asking others to invest, and understanding “The God Ask.”
  • Learn best practices and gain confidence in sharing your presentation.
  • Rehearse with your peers and make real calls for appointments.
  • Experience the value of meeting face to face with people and asking for support.
  • Discover how to cultivate lasting relationships with your supporters.

We will work with you to develop a budget based on your ministry role, where you’re going, and your family’s personal needs. Our goal is for you to be adequately funded to maximize the fruitfulness of your ministry and your family.
