    Why We Love This Opportunity

    Frontiers’ singular focus is to bring the Gospel to Muslims. The organization’s top three strengths are:

    • A clear and sustained mission focus.
    • A grace orientation.
    • Expertise in preparing and caring for field workers.

    As the world’s largest Christian ministry focused solely on reaching Muslims in their heartlands, Frontiers’ mission is to, with love and respect, invite all Muslim peoples to follow Jesus. Frontiers prioritize sending teams to those Muslim peoples and places with the least access to the Gospel. 

    In the US, Frontiers partners with churches to recruit, train, send and serve long-term teams of workers who will plant churches and catalyze movements of faith in Christ in Muslim communities overseas.

    The Accounting Manager will be vital to the ongoing success of the ministry. As a leader on the finance team, this person will steward and distribute the funds entrusted to us for God’s glory throughout the world.

    About This Organization

    Frontiers USA is in a healthy position, both spiritually and financially. They have persevered throughout the pandemic and remained focused on their mission. The number of workers sent to the field has declined slightly in the last several years but is beginning to rebound. Frontiers donors continue to be generous, and the ministry has forged many partnerships with churches to send their global workers to the field.

    The Finance department is vital to the carrying out of Frontiers’ mission. The department stewards the funds for field and home staff workers’ salaries and reimbursements; it ensures that incoming gifts are allocated to the proper workers’ ministry funds and the general fund; it works with department heads to prepare the annual budget, then works with them throughout the year to help stay on track. Without the proper flow of finances, work in the field is hampered.

    Chief Financial Officer Steve Sadar and his team of professionals have a very positive working relationship and greatly enjoy their work, but acknowledge that their department is, at present, understaffed. Upgrades and advancements are overdue in certain areas, but the team lacks the capacity to evaluate and apply solutions.
