Global Ministries was established in 1819 in New York City as the “missional instrument” of the Methodist Church worldwide. Today, Global Ministries supports personnel, projects, and partners in a total of 136 countries. Global Ministries’ 363 missionaries include more than 20 in Georgia and surrounding southeastern states. Global Ministries’ humanitarian relief and development agency, known as UMCOR, or the United Methodist Committee on Relief, provides disaster relief and development in the Unites States and abroad. Global Ministries’ Global Health unit, reflecting Methodism’s longstanding commitment to well-being and physical health, works with faith-based and other hospitals and local health clinics in much of the world.

Through its Global Health unit, Global Ministries is the lead agency in health for The United Methodist Church worldwide. For the Global Health unit’s expanded work based in Atlanta, Global Ministries announced in May 2016 a new worldwide health initiative: “Abundant Health: Our Promise to Children,” which aims to reach one million children with lifesaving interventions by 2020. Working with partners in the US and globally, the initiative will focus on preventable deaths by facilitating activities to ensure safe births, address nutritional challenges and promote breastfeeding, advance prevention and treatment of childhood diseases, and in promote children’s health and wholeness. The initiative builds on and expands the success of The United Methodist Church’s previous health initiative, Imagine No Malaria, 2012-2016, which significantly reduced the number of childhood deaths caused by malaria, particularly in Africa. In the malaria campaign, 2.3 million mosquito nets were distributed, protecting 4.6 million people; 300 health clinics were improved, equipped, and provided with malaria preventing commodities; and 13 health boards were created and trained in 16 African countries. Overall, 5.6 million lives were impacted.

Re: Looking for a job in WASH? - Check out Josh’s Water Jobs - by: annetempel
your website is a valuable resource for all those looking for a job in WASH.

I like your suggestion to post every week the recent jobs in a new thread. That will keep the Forum Users updated and will not get too burdensome.

Thanks for sharing this on the Forum.

Re: Looking for a job in WASH? - Check out Josh’s Water Jobs - by: JoshuaNewton
Thanks again for your response.

I say "Craigslist" model in terms of the use of the person's name in the website name. That was one of the first websites that did that and it proved very successful. Although the scope is quite different for my website of course. But, for me, it's about keeping a little of the personal side to it. It's also just fun to meet people in the water community and they are like, "Oh, you're that Josh..."

How about this... I post once a week all the WASH jobs in a new thread for that week? That way it's not too much and all the WASH jobs are there. It's fairly easy to do as that is how I set up my listserv each week, so it's just taking the WASH jobs and copying and pasting that section into a thread (with the title "WASH Jobs: 2 August 2016", for example). So, it's only 4-5 times a month maximum, but all 50-100 jobs would be there (for the month).

In terms of the "sticky thread" maybe we still keep the one that is there, since it's quite established, but I edit the text some to both present the website and encourage people to send me job openings to post.

Kind regards,

Thanks for your post here. Really interesting what you wrote about how your website developed (labor of love!) and how you're focussing/pitching it.

What did you mean by: "With the name, it's also kind of following the Craigslist model."?

I also wanted to pick up on your suggestion of:

Maybe what we can do now that the "launch" phase is over for the website is to erase the current thread and put a new "sticky thread" there that has more longevity that both encourages people to look for and post jobs. I'm trying to think of a way to post jobs from my site in the forum that wouldn't get too burdensome for both me and for the forum user, as it would end up being like 15-20 times a week (WASH-related jobs). Any thoughts on that? Or maybe we just do the above suggestion? It would be great find an arrangement that benefits both websites.

I have no clear opinion on this and would love to hear from others, too. - Would you say the current sticky thread is OK like this or would you prefer a new sticky thread?

If you found an automated way to have posts from your website also posted here, I would welcome that. Perhaps they could all go into the same thread, rather than having a new thread for each one. And at the end of the post it could provide a prominent link to your site as your site has far better search and filter capabilities for jobs.

Alternatively, you could perhaps pick out one or two per week or per month that you post here manually, just as a reminder for your site (which I think deserves being promoted).

Kind regards,
