Married couples applying to be full-time staff at YWAM Ember Ink should both feel called to San Jose and to ministry. Couples are encouraged to view their service for the Lord as a partnership, though they may be working in different ministry areas. If either married partner does not sense a calling from the Lord to be in missionary service with YWAM Ember Ink, this should be discussed with YWAM during the application process. It is possible for one spouse to apply as staff, but in these situations housing on-site is not guaranteed.
FAMILIES IN MISSIONS
YWAM affirms the importance of families serving God together in missions, not just the father and/or mother. We encourage the development of strong and healthy family units, with each member sharing the call to missions and contributing their gifts in unique and complementary ways. – Foundational Value #15
We welcome families wholeheartedly! Parents who are the primary caregivers for children are asked to be involved in ministry on a basic level. With working in specific ministry areas, this is to be worked out individually with leadership and ministry supervisors.
