Chosen People Answers has a bold vision and a broad scope. In order to be a successful ministry to the Jewish people, we need to recruit more people and raise more support. If you can imagine, everything you see on this site has been produced by one full-time staff member (Brian Crawford) and three part-time technology consultants, with a very limited budget of $50,000.
As we move forward to the future, we need to grow!
There are several roles that we need to recruit new workers for, and these roles are split into Support-Raise and Consultant categories.
In order to accomplish this recruitment, we will need to raise up new missionary staff who have a vision for Messianic apologetics, and we will need to raise funds from a foundation, church, or wealthy donor to enable us to hire the necessary consultants.
Any worker with Chosen People Answers who receives a salary for evangelistic work is a support-raised missionary with our parent ministry, Chosen People Ministries. A support-raised missionary is responsible for raising financial support from believers and churches to pay for their salary and ministry expenses.
Currently, Brian Crawford is a support-raised missionary with Chosen People Answers, and Jennifer Miles is preparing to enter the ministry through raising her financial support. However, there are further missionary roles that need to be filled:
- Apologetics authors: tasked with creating original content for an unbelieving audience
- Apologetics editors: tasked with editing apologetics content and ensuring quality
- Digital responders: tasked with responding to questions and comments on the site
- Audiovisual creators: tasked with communicating apologetics content through audio and visual media
If you have a calling to be in full-time missions work among Jewish people and have a passion to work with Chosen People Answers in any of the above capacities, please contact us right away.
Consultants are hires we make to accomplish tasks that are not evangelism-related. These consultants will reside outside of Chosen People Ministries and will be compensated for their time on their assigned project. Consultant needs for Chosen People Answers include:
- Web developers (Django, JQuery, MongoDB)
- Digital texts specialist
- Data scientist
- Game theorist
If you believe the Lord is calling you to do any of these things with us, please contact us.
In 2017 we launched our first summer internship program, and it was a blast!
Summer interns are given a crash course in Messianic Apologetics and work with Brian to come up with a topic of study for future publication on Chosen People Answers. The internship is housed in the Feinberg Center for Messianic Jewish Studies in the heart of Brooklyn, New York.
