Can you use your career to serve on mission overseas?

Yes. There are many possibilities for you to use an occupation such as in business, healthcare, and education to not only make a living overseas but also meet the spiritual needs of people.  More specifically, you can follow the powerful biblical example of proclaiming the gospel in the marketplace in both word and deed. Many countries otherwise closed to traditional missionaries welcome business entrepreneurs, medical professionals, teachers, and others who can help create jobs, contribute to their economy, and increase the welfare of their people. IMB offers free “roadmaps” to mission service for a sample of careers. See the IMB store to get copies.
