Technical Services Specialist

Technical Services personnel do the hands-on work that keeps our overseas branches running.


  • Loving people through service
  • Advancing the Kingdom of God by supporting missionaries
  • Helping people to do what they don’t know how to do


  • Preferred experience as a mechanic, carpenter, electrician, plumber, etc.
  • Attention to detail and ability to problem solve
  • Creativity in less-than-ideal environments
  • Ability to work well with nationals and colleagues

Technical Service colleagues use their unique skills to aid in building and maintaining structures necessary to facilitate the work of our overseas team. They are often involved in special projects such as helping to build missionary homes in villages or the construction of offices. They may also repair vehicles and other mission equipment and provide general handyman skills. This role may be referred to be other names such as Construction Supervisor, Handyman, Carpenter, or Mechanic.

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.
