FAQs

We are a Christian nonprofit organization, with a diverse cross-cultural team. We are committed to a positive and inclusive work environment for all team members, regardless of faith. Our Christian faith is also a part of our organizational DNA and a Core Value. We host optional times for staff members to express their faith through prayer and devotions in meetings; yet we don’t believe in faith requirements among any U.S.-based staff or partnering famers. If you feel comfortable with our message as well as being a part of prayer-time (whether vocally or silently), feel at ease to apply!

Some positions require a stronger Christian faith-alignment due to specific responsibilities which could include engagement with church or Christian organizational leadership, communication with Christian audiences, or supporting spiritual renewal activities, etc.
As part of ensuring equitable pay as well as alignment with the level of job responsibilities, we believe in having open conversations about compensation throughout the interview process. If you want to know the salary range before you apply, it is available upon request.

We take 30 days to collect and review resumes and CVs. If we determine you qualify for a phone screening, you will hear from us within 10 business days of the application deadline.
This is unique to each team member, but some common answers include our mission, values, organizational culture, and the community of people we work with! If you make it to the Team Interview rounds, this is a great question to ask––because as much as we focus on finding the most qualified fit for us, it is just as important that we are also a fit for you!
We continue to be a fully remote workforce, however some positions may be location specific. Our San Diego office is now a collaboration center available for daily in-office work or meetings. Being a close-knit team with monthly social/team-building activities, we prefer to hire people who live close enough that they are able to connect in person. However, expanding our staff base nationally opens us up to a spectrum of diversity that we might not have in San Diego alone. Please refer to specific job posts to determine any location requirements.
