Jeju Maintenance Coordinator

Jeju Maintenance Coordinator

Career or Launch ShortTerm Missionary trip in: Northeast Asia

Dates: 08/27/2022 - 08/15/2023

Cost: $0.00

Ministry Description


Oversee, develop and maintain the Bible Institute physical plant. Train and disciple younger staff and students who will be working with you.


WOLBI Jeju is a cross-cultural launching pad for training and sending young people into the most unreached part of the globe with the Gospel--into Asia. We have 5 log buildings and 6 acres of land. When maintenance, repairs and development are being taken care of efficiently, it makes the learning experience much better for students and frees other staff to focus on ministry. The coordinator is also able to train young people and teach them skills that will be useful in their future.


By plane to Incheon International Airport (cost $1000-$1500) and then transfer to Gimpo Airport to fly to Jeju Island (cost $50-$100). The trip is approximately 20-24 hours. Layovers may extend this time. WOLBI staff will meet you at the Jeju Airport to transport you to campus.


A small efficiency apartment on campus or a shared dorm with other single male staff.


WOLBI is located in a rural area so having the ability to drive is very helpful. Volunteers with driving experience and an international driving permit may be able to use some of our ministry vehicles. Most of our vehicles are 12-passenger, though, so the driving permit needs to cover that. Volunteers are welcome to purchase a used vehicle for personal use if desired.


olunteers are able to purchase meals at the WOLBI diningroom. The cost is about $8/meal/person. Couples are encouraged to eat breakfast and dinner at home.


WOLBI can apply for a one-year missionary visa for the volunteer. The visa paperwork process would need to begin June 1 before coming in September.

What to Bring

Dress Code

A love of young people and the ability to manage are also important since you will be training and directing others who assist you.

Financial Information

Other Information

We have students on our campus for 11 months, so it is very helpful to have volunteers rotate in with the students and rotate out when they do. Korea is very strict and safe in regard to COVID. Depending on the current situation and government guidelines, 10-14 days of quarantine on our campus may be required when you enter Korea. Most airlines/governments require a negative rapid PCR test within 24-72 hours of boarding the plane.
