Formal Interview and Bible Exam
A formal interview and an oral Bible Exam are usually completed on the same day and in person. Each interview takes 1.5 hours in length. The other three parts of the Bible Exam are:
- General Knowledge Fill in the Blank (Closed Bible)
- Application Section (Open Bible)
- An Explanation of NAIM’s Statement of Faith
After successfully completing the formal interview and Bible exam, you will now be an Accepted Candidate.
The Accepted Candidate’s first job is to raise prayer support and sustainable income for their ministry position with NAIM. If you are going the regular missionary route, this will include financial support raising. If you are coming on as a Community Member Missionary, you will need a job in the community where you will be placed. Working with the Recruitment Director and the Finance Director, you will set a budget.
Training Missionary Development Program (MDP)
MDP is the required NAIM training which can be started during the application process. There are three 5-day Modules held over a 1.5 year cycle of spring, fall and spring.
Once an Accepted Candidate reaches their full sustainable income, they assume their field assignment. A tentative field assignment, including location and ministry focus, is agreed upon between the Accepted Candidate and the Operations Council early in the sustainable income phase. This decision is confirmed when the Accepted Candidate reaches full support.
