INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITY: EthnoArts Specialist / Ethnomusicologist

Victor Hugo said, “Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” What ought to defy your silence more than the freedom offered through God’s Word?

As an EthnoArts Specialist, you will work with local musicians, actors, dancers, storytellers, and artisans to go beyond words to shout out the truth communicated through Bible translation.

Today, over 2,000 people groups, nearly 150 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language, and we urgently need you to join the team!

Job Location: Southeast Asia

Want to work in a different location? Wycliffe USA has many open positions located in Africa, Asia, Europe, Americas, and the Pacific! Even though this job is located overseas, you must be legally authorized to work in the United States as per U.S. employment laws. 

Important Note
In becoming a member of a faith-based organization, you will receive extensive training and resources in partnership development so that gifts given to the preference of your ministry account are provided for your salary, benefits, and ministry related expenses. 
What Might You Do?
Every day is different! One day you might meet with local artisans to learn about a community’s art traditions. Later you might help a community develop local ownership through production and distribution of arts.

This job might be for you if…
  • You demonstrate the desire and ability to support corporate Biblical and religious goals and participate in regular work-related spiritual activities without reservation (Spiritual Bona Fide Occupational Qualification)
  • You are passionate about working with local artists to help them develop new creations to reflect their spiritual response to the translated Scriptures.
