What Does the STS Do?
- Radius short-term staff volunteers will care for children during class hours (M-F, 8:00 am – 12:00 pm), with some occasional “as needed” childcare during afternoons, evenings and weekends. She will also prepare for the day’s activities with the children, help facilitate parent-led homeschool assignments, and maintain and clean the childcare areas. Other responsibilities may involve helping with evening and weekend meals, upkeep of guest rooms and assisting with hosting visitors, along with other occasional tasks and opportunities.
- For short-term staff, a one-year commitment is preferred (July-June). We will consider 5-18 month commitments. Radius students and short-term staff will have a break from
mid Juneto mid July& mid Decto mid Jan.
- As a support-based ministry, Radius staff raises support to cover their living and ministry expenses. We ask that our short-term staff contribute $500 a month ($5000 for the year), which can be a lump sum or broken into monthly payments. If this amount is a barrier for you, please inquire about potential scholarship funds. In addition, she will need money for personal expenses, such as transportation,
health care(Radius does not provide health insurance), entertainment, etc.

- The daily work schedule is somewhat flexible, so STS may complete online college or Bible courses while at Radius. In addition, Radius may recommend specific reading or “assignments” as part of our discipleship care for short-term staff. This will be arranged on an individual basis and we anticipate this will be a valuable component of the time spent on our campus. Also, when possible, short-term staff will be encouraged to sit in on classes to learn more about church-planting among unreached people. STS often have the opportunity to accompany students or staff on cultural outings.
- Short-term staff will need to complete a background check, as well as a CPR and first aid course.
- Short-term staff will arrive a few days before the semester begins for orientation and team prep, and they will need to pay their own travel expense to and from our campus.
