Training Coach

A Training Coach walks alongside people to empower them to reach their fullest potential for service in the Kingdom.


  • Want to see people have the tools they need to thrive
  • Walking alongside others as they grow personally and professionally
  • Views training and preparation as an important piece of missionary preparation and growth


  • Experience mentoring others
  • Cross-cultural experience preferred
  • A caring, pastoral spirit

Training coaches are experienced Life Coaches who invest in representatives as they prepare for their missionary service.  Our coaches receive certified training to walk the journey with our missionaries to prepare them academically, personally, and spiritually for the challenges ahead.  Training coaches generally have at least 5 years of cross-cultural ministry experience and a keen ability to encourage, guide, and mentor individuals.

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.
