Each of our people groups belongs to a specific linguistic affinity, a collection of people groups who share similar languages or cultures. We’re looking for researchers to help give these affinities definition so that we can better mobilise and educate our supporters and partners.

Project Description

We live in a noisy world where we’re constantly being sold products, causes and lifestyles. In order to advocate for our mission and the people groups we serve, we need to provide a clear roadmap for understanding the need for the Gospel among speakers of indigenous minority languages in Europe.

We’re looking for a team who would develop comprehensive profiles for the Linguistic Affinity Groups (LAGS) that function as different ethnographic categories for the people groups we serve. The profiles would be featured online and in print as we share more about our mission, both to mobilise more workers and to better educate our networks.In addition to the creation of real-world resources, our programme consists of in-depth missiological training, spiritual formation, and language study. Each of these elements are designed to equip and encourage participants to join God’s mission to bring his Good News to the nations. For more information about our programme, please view our short-term project page.

Applicants for this team should have some prior training, gifts, skills, or practical experience in (1) creative writing, (2) research, or (3) graphic design, or (4) linguistics. Some knowledge of a major European language would be helpful, but not required. For students or educators who would like to receive or offer academic credit for this project, please view the academic credit information sheet on the short-term projects page.
