While that is our major demographic you do not, we are open to anyone applying who resonates with our vision to be a disciple who makes disciples.

Can students have a leadership role with LifeCompass?

Yes, each LifeCompass session will have Resident Assistants (RA). The RA can be a single or married couple, without children. Learn more by reading the RA Job Description.

Why Thailand?

LifeCompass is uniquely located in the heart of the 10/40 Window and is surrounded by many villages, cities, and countries in need of the transforming power of Jesus Christ. This creates a great opportunity in the midst of discipleship to not only be used by God but have our hearts tuned to His heart concerning world missions.

What is the 10/40 window?

The 10/40 Window is an area of the world that extends from 10 degrees to 40 degrees north of the equator and stretches from Northern Africa across to China. This window is significant because it contains the largest population of non-Christians in the world.

How will I pay for it?

We have never had anyone not be able to come due to finances. We encourage you to invite people to invest in you as you pursue God during this time, much like a missionary raises support. We will coach you through this process.

Are donations for my tuition tax deductible?

Since you are receiving a service they will not be tax deductible.

I am a Cadence Missionary—can I use my work account to pay for my child?

Since this is a service you are paying for your child, per Cadence and IRS rules you cannot use work account funds.
