Career Missions

Find Your Place in the World

You can help share the gospel with people who don’t know Jesus Christ as their Saviour. That opportunity is still out of reach for many people around the world. If you’re willing to make a long-term commitment to change that, we’re here to help you.

Ethnos Canada will work in partnership with you and your church. We will provide the specialized training you need and help you find the role God has prepared for you in the network of missionaries who make cross-cultural ministries possible.

“Jesus said to His disciples, ‘As the Father has sent me, so send I you…’.
We are to be His hands and His feet, His eyes and His tears; His very life to this lost and dying world, because if we’re not, nobody is. The incarnation that God began in Jesus He now wants to continue through you and through me – the body of Christ!”

Martin Lamb

Career Missionaries must have a minimum of 60 credit hours at a Bible college or university (typically two years of Bible training or the equivalent) and successfully complete Ethnos’ specialized training program.

  • Be willing to trust God for financial and material needs
  • Have no preexisting school, auto or credit card debts without a repayment plan (some exceptions apply)
  • Not have a history of divorce, or divorce and remarriage, after salvation

Becoming a Missionary

With more than 6,000 people groups still unreached, the task is bigger than just us. God is calling out workers from the ethnos to go.

Our role in mobilizing, equipping and coordinating missionaries extends beyond our own culture. From all around to the world, God is calling out workers to be a part of reaching the ethnos!

Thousands of believers from more than three dozen countries are actively working together in Africa, Latin America, Northern Canada and the Asia-Pacific Region.
