Description

Do you wonder what could happen if all the people stewarding God's global mission made catalytic connections across the regions of the world, generations, and spheres of influence? We do. At the Lausanne Movement, we are passionate about accelerating global mission, and we are looking for an Executive Assistant to the CEO to join our team of change-makers.

Lausanne recruits staff that have a strong active faith in Christ and see that everything they are involved in life is in some way a part of their overall ministry.

Their puzzle piece fits into the whole and it is this way that the Lord uses Lausanne to minister in the world.
