Why does IJM require applicants to submit a Statement of Faith?

IJM is a non-sectarian community of faith that works with all people to seek justice on behalf of all people regardless of race, religion, creed or any other status.

As a faith community, IJM's core of full-time staff intentionally draw strength and unity from their common commitment to the teachings of Jesus Christ and from their communion of daily prayer and spiritual disciplines. Accordingly, IJM staff seeks colleagues who embrace and contribute to the spiritual community through shared Christian conviction and practice. As Mother Theresa did in Kolkata, IJM seeks to provide a common platform for all people of good will to serve the needy, while also building a core community who share her fundamental convictions of Christian faith and practice.

Accordingly, IJM asks applicants seeking to join IJM's core community of full-time staff to submit a Statement of Faith describing their Christian faith and its relevance to their interest in serving with IJM. It is generally helpful for an applicant to provide insight into his/her own journey of faith and as well as current spiritual disciplines. As with any such society of faith, SEC. 2000e-1 [Section702] of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes provision for employment along lines of shared religious convictions.

What is a Statement of Faith?

A statement of faith should describe your Christian faith and how it is relevant to your involvement with IJM. It should include, at a minimum, a description of your spiritual disciplines (prayer, study, etc.) and your current fellowship or place of worship.

Are non-U.S. citizens eligible for U.S.-based positions?

U.S. citizenship is not required for U.S.-based employment, but candidates must have the legal right to work in the United States. In most cases, IJM will not be able to assist financially in securing a visa to work in the United States.

Equal Opportunity

IJM is committed to building a diverse workforce through fair and equitable employment practices. IJM encourages people of any race, color, age, sex, marital status, or political ideology, to apply for employment. As a faith-based organization, IJM has the legal right under SEC. 2000e-1 [Section702] of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, to require that all employees practice a mature orthodox Christian faith, as defined by the Apostles' Creed.
