Above all else, at MissionAssist we appreciate people.

People who are Christians

We are a group of Christians from many churches and denominations that hold to the basic beliefs of the Christian Faith as expressed in the creeds and confessions. We need to work together to help bring the good news about Jesus Christ to all the world, so we expect all our members to be in agreement with our Statement of Belief.

“The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I don’t need you!'”.
(I Corinthians 12:21)

People who are servants

We are looking for those with a servant heart and a real desire to help in the best way that we can. It means going the extra mile, doing quality work to the best of our ability, providing just that bit more than people might expect, listening carefully to what they need; all so that we can serve them well and without complaint. We are looking for people who have the spiritual gift of service.

“The greatest among you will be your servant.”
(Matthew 23:11)

People with dedication

Some of our members have physical difficulties that confine them to their houses but what they may lack in mobility they make up for in persistence, perseverance and determination. Some of our keyboarders can only type with one finger at a time and with great difficulty but they keep going. They see this work as an opportunity for service to God and His people, which they never had before. They overcome obstacles in life. We need people with that kind of determined spirit. We want to show perseverance and dedication to finish the task well and with excellence.

“Let us not become weary in doing good… let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”
(Galatians 6:9-10)

People with a skill

God has given all of His people talents and abilities. Whether you consider yourself super-talented or very ordinary, you definitely have something to give. MissionAssist offers an opportunity for Christians to use their talents. What’s more, we are looking for a wide range of abilities and gifts.

“Whatever you do … do it all in the Name of the Lord Jesus.”
(Colossians 3:17)

People with a heart for mission

We use our gifts to help those serving Christ overseas with their work. This enables all of us to contribute to this work, even if we cannot go overseas ourselves. In this way, we can use our time and our energy to help bring the good news to the whole world.

“The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.”
(Matthew 9:37)

People who will sacrifice

Many of our opportunities to serve are very flexible but some of our work takes:

  • a lot of time,
  • a lot of energy,
  • a lot of thought,
  • a lot of effort.

“Those who would come after me must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.”
(Luke 9:23)

People who are generous

Members of MissionAssist are all volunteers giving their time freely and generously. All of the work we do is supported by our own members.

“Give, and it will be given to you.”
(Luke 6:38)

People who are creative

MissionAssist has an innovative and creative approach. We are often looking for new solutions to questions and we don’t mind making mistakes in order to find a better way forward.

“God created human beings in His own image.”
(Genesis 1:27)

People who take responsibility

Our members are scattered around the UK and many other countries, in their own homes, so that suits people who are happy to get on with tasks on their own. We depend on some individuals being willing to take on significant responsibility to lead teams and help others get the work done. In addition to the leadership team, we appoint coordinators and team leaders to ensure that volunteers feel supported, well informed and connected to one another.

“You entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.”
(Matthew 25:20)

People who encourage

Some people rarely get told when they have done something well. MissionAssist wants to recognise and appreciate the service and the work that people do.

“Well done, good and faithful servant!”
(Matthew 25:21)
