There are many things in our lives that we take for granted, foundations that are the result of the work of dedicated people who went before us. We lean on the expertise of local church leaders and co-workers. We count on the knowledge and wisdom of the consultants and leaders, and we depend heavily on the proficiency and experience of the men and women who served us in the training. In a similar way, we take for granted that those who process the funds, write the articles, maintain the equipment and keep the computers functioning will naturally be there. But what if they aren’t? Who will train and challenge the next generation and provide the infrastructure that they need? Just like others were there for us, we need to be there for the next generation.
When Zerubbabel encouraged the returning Israelites to rebuild the foundations of the Temple, was it just for themselves that they began to work? Or was it for the glory of the Lord and for all those who would follow in their footsteps? (Ezra 3:8-11)
A quick perusal of the Ethnos360 “Find Your Fit” webpage reminds us how many co-workers are needed to keep the USA foundations intact. Well, some of those foundations are weakening and need to be shored up. As of the writing of this article, Ethnos360 has 76 open positions in the USA alone.

The biggest need across the USA is for people to serve in maintenance, followed by Information Technology and then bookkeeping. The Homes of Ethnos360, our retirement community for older members, has been looking for a new director for two years. You won’t hear it much, but staff in almost all our centers are wearing out because of not having enough co-workers. If we don’t get them help and they decide to leave, well, … we don’t want to think about that.
Some of these positions require specific training, but there are a number that do not. If you sense the Lord might be leading you to a different ministry at this time, please look these over and see where you might be able to be an essential part of the team serving the next generation, honoring the last generation and helping to reach the world for Christ.
Generally, these are long-term positions, but if you can help part-time or for a season, we can use you. For more information on a specific position, click the “Ask A Question” box to the right of the position listing on the “Find Your Fit” page.
