WORKING WITH GOODSEED

GoodSeed International is a fellowship of men and women who recognize that the biblical account of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ holds immense implications for all people. With this in mind, these like-minded individuals work together to facilitate a clear explanation of these two significant events, using a "Creation to the Cross" overview of the Bible.

 

GoodSeed has members, associates, volunteers, interns and affiliates, all working within its organizational umbrella.

 

As a facilitator, GoodSeed provides an opportunity for missions and local churches to combine the abilities of their gifted members with the abilities of others, all for the purpose of accomplishing a task which would be difficult for one mission or church assembly to perform.

 

Many of these people are involved in other organizations, but share a sense of common cause with GoodSeed. As a result, they wish to add their strengths and abilities to the vision and efforts of GoodSeed while, at the same time, enhancing their own spheres of ministry.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

In a sense, everyone under the umbrella of GoodSeed is a volunteer.

GoodSeed offers no fixed salaried positions. No one benefits from the sales of books or royalties. Instead, participants are supported by churches, friends and other ministries that share the goals of GoodSeed. Retirees are welcome!

 

Members and Associates are frequently career missionaries, though some must work part-time to make ends meet. For those requiring it, GoodSeed provides a means whereby gifts are tax receipted. This status may involve a move that places one near a GoodSeed office in order that everyone might function most effectively together as a team. All members and associates must meet certain doctrinal qualifications.

Interns are volunteers who have agreed to work with GoodSeed for a specified time (usually a minimum of one year) to gain experience in ministry. An intern may hold a part-time job to help subsidize living expenses. This status involves a move to be near a GoodSeed office. We currently offer the internship program in the Canadian and U.S. office.

 

Whether a member, associate, intern or a volunteer, everyone is loosely referred to as "GoodSeed staff."

I AM INTERESTED IN...

...IN BECOMING AN INTERN

...IN JOINING FULL-TIME

If you are interested in finding out if you are a good fit for GoodSeed, or if you want to gain some practical ministry experience, you may want to consider joining us as an intern.

The internship program provides opportunity for interns to learn practical skills, gain experience in ministry, as well as grow spiritually by learning to depend on God's provision in all things.

Discipleship is also a central part of the program where the intern will be challenged to be a student of the Bible and be able to communicate biblical truths, especially the gospel, clearly and accurately.

 

Contact us if you would like to discuss this opportunity. We accept applications year-round. Currently there are two sites where an intern can join in the ministry — Idaho, USA and Alberta, Canada.

If you are interested in joining us full-time, please contact us directly.
