Field Coordinator Q & A


Field Coordinators are missionaries who serve as a bridge between their home country and the mission field.

They facilitate the development of responsible indigenous Christian leadership and assist Christian leaders by enabling them to start ministries and outreaches to their own people such as Feeding Centers, Christian schools, Bible Schools, and Leadership training.

They do this by :

  • PIONEERING projects and ministries
  • HOSTING short-term mission teams
  • ADMINISTRATING in-country projects, programs and support

How long does it take to become a FIELD COORDINATOR?

This depends upon the individual or couple. It can take from six months to a year and a half.

Would I be paid by MV?

No, MV is a faith based mission. Therefore, each Field Coordinator is responsible to raise their support.

Why does MV use the term FIELD COORDINATOR and not MISSIONARY?

A missionary traditionally has pioneered the work directly with the people they serve, where as, a MV Field Coordinator works through the National Church to assist the Local Christian Leaders in reaching their people with the love and message of Christ.
