the heart behind compel global comes from our decades of experience in the pastorate, coaching individuals, and leading organizations.

As a lead pastor, I (Steve) was passionate about engaging our church in international work. Whenever one of our people expressed a call from God to invest in international ministries, or to serve on the frontlines of global need, I got all excited. My problem was that I didn't have enough bandwidth to competently steer them towards a good fit.

As an executive leader in nonprofits, I (Josiah) was passionate about engaging as many people as possible in serving the nations. My problem was that our organization I was serving had a very specific focus and could only place people with very specialized skills in a very small number of places. It broke my heart every time I had to turn away a called and gifted person, just because our organization didn’t have enough places or roles to connect them to.

Because Compel Global represents many organizations with hundreds of opportunities all around the world, we can help you get connected with an opportunity that’s a good fit for who God uniquely wired you to be.

Our purpose and passion is to help you find your place of joy and fulfillment in global work.
