Do you envision using your technical skills on the mission field?
Trash 2 Treasure is a project that uses plastic recycling to develop ongoing relationships with people with the goal of evangelism and discipleship. The recycling machines themselves are based on open-source designs, and require hands-on technical skills and a passion for teaching and mentoring to build and maintain the machines and oversee their use. A teaching plan has been developed that uses examples from the recycling process with parallels from the Bible to illustrate how God turns our lives from Trash into Treasure.
The Trash 2 Treasure project started as a pilot project at our office in Spain and has now reached a stage where we need a coordinator to oversee the deployment of the project to another location, where it can be used with the refugee and asylum seeker population.
The Trash 2 Treasure Coordinator’s responsibilities include:
• Spending time at the pilot project location to become familiar with the machines and recycling process.
• Selection and purchasing of new machines for the new location.
• Assembly and maintenance of new machines.
• Planning and construction of work spaces.
• Training of others to carry out the recycling and teaching plan.
• Supervision of work spaces.
• Mechanical aptitude.
• Knowledge of safe workshop practices.
• Ability to think creatively of potential uses for recycled plastic based on knowledge of the process.
• A passion for disciple-making among unreached people from various worldviews.
• The desire and ability to live and work from the regional office in Spain initially, then possibly another location.
• Self-directed with good communication skills.
• Flexibility and an eagerness to learn.
• Raise your own financial support and/or be self-funded.
• Willing to complete the minimum training.
• All candidates need to be able to sign our Statement of Faith
