Say “I believe in you” with a gift that speaks life to a vulnerable child!

“Baby John”, our little “lost boy” who was brought to Kids Alive Lilato Children’s Home in Zambia, is just one of the thousands who, through the gift of sponsorship, can experience a resurrection of hope! Help us deliver that hope!

Missionary Opportunities

Are you ready to see what missionary opportunities God might have for you? Do you love Him and want to serve Him by being the hands and feet of Jesus to some of the world’s most vulnerable children?

Then let’s talk about the exciting and challenging work of being a Kids Alive missionary!

Our missionaries are simply men and women who love Jesus Christ and desire to use their skills, gifts, and passions to bring hope to hurting children. They are a part of teams made up of other cross-cultural missionaries and national Christian staff.

Your time, talent, and treasure

With the support and training of our organization, missionaries raise their own financial support to serve overseas. Missionaries serve for initial commitments of 2-3 years and then undergo a review process to decide whether to continue serving with us or to return to life in their home country.

Put your gifts to work

Whether you have unique gifts or interests in teaching, accounting, photography, writing, medicine, or construction – you will find exciting ways to put those gifts to use working with Kids Alive.

Upon returning, the unique skills our missionaries learn on the field often give them an edge in finding their next employment. Serving with us may bring experience and training far beyond your original job description!

Look through the list of open positions below to see our current needs. And if you have a passion to serve in a way that’s not listed, contact us to see if we can create a position for you!
