Joshua Project is a non-profit Christian ministry focused on gathering and distributing information about the world's least-reached ethnic people groups.
All Joshua Project staff raise their own personal support or are self-funded volunteers. We are unable to offer compensation to any volunteers. All these opportunities can be done remotely. We welcome inquiries regarding staff and volunteer opportunities.
