Mission House Host/Hostess- Honduras


World Gospel Outreach, Inc.

Hattiesburg, MS United States

World Gospel Outreach, Inc. (WGO), is a protestant, non-denominational, evangelical church ministry that was founded in 1984 and now has ministry operations in both Honduras and Belize. Our Vision Statement is “Impacting the faith of Christ followers through serving and evangelizing children and the poor.” This vision is based on the biblical mandates to care for the poor, widows and orphans; to be fishers of men and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost and to be accountable before God for how we meet the needs of others. We accomplish this through lifeline ministry outreaches, serve teams, Children’s Ministry and the knowledge that the North American believer will be impacted.
As we begin to open up more opportunities in each country post pandemic, we are searching for the right candidate to fill our Mission House Host position located near Tegucigalpa Honduras. The primary role of this position is to be the lead person to interface with the Serve Team members that come to stay and serve at the mission house and to provide all hosting activities and requirements. He/she has a responsibility to help the team members feel welcomed, comfortable, and cared for, as far as reasonable expectations would permit. This includes informing team members of important information they will need to remember throughout the week that will assist in their spiritual growth and personal health/safety, as well as, the efficient functioning of the serve team operation. While the Host is the primary interface with team members, it is critical that the Host look for, encourage, and schedule interactions between team members and other WGO staff. Additional duties as required.
