Become a Kingdom Consultant

You can serve the purpose of Jesus’ Great Commission without quitting your day job or leaving your home. Global mission organizations need your specific professional skills and expertise for short-term, fixed-hour challenges. They need you—the accountant, marketer, admin, trainer, IT specialist. 

When you take on a Virtual Role or one-hour consult, mission teams can stay focused on their local needs. Volunteering one hour of your efficient expertise might save them ten or more hours of hit-and-miss frustration.

How the process works

We want you to find meaningful opportunities to steward your God-given talents.

Create a profile

Sign up

It all starts with just signing up. Ater registering for an account, you will receive an email that will take you to the next step.

Create your profile

Answer a couple questions about your skills, talents, experience, passions and interests.  This will help Great Commission Organizations (GCOs) connect with you. And you can always come back and update your profile as needed.

A connection request is made

A GCO browses the catalog and chooses a topic they want help with. The connection request will be sent to multiple KCs who have made their expertise available on the requested topics.

The connection request is accepted

When you receive a request, you can decide if it's a good match and either accept, decline or ask a clarifying question.

Whoever responds first will be connected and the request it will no longer be available to other KCs who received it.

KC & GCO Introduction

Both you and GCO are sent an email so you can coordinate how you want to have the conversation.

Connect for a conversation

You and GCO have a one-hour conversation focused on the topic requested by the GCO and together you move the mission forward.

Continue making an impact

After the conversation, you will receive a survey to provide feedback to help Switchboard continue hosting impactful conversations.

After your initial conversation, you can stay connected with the same GCO or connect with new ones. It's up to you.

As you receive more requests, you can continue bringing their best to the Great Commission.

Conversations

Provide expertise in an initial short connection to help GCOs move the mission forward. Conversations are currently available in several categories.

Looking for a topic we don't currently have?

We will update the catalog in two primary ways:

1. Wider breadth of categories

As we hear needs from Great Commission Organizations, we will add new categories that will contain various specialties.

2. Deeper stock of specialties

As we hear from our Kingdom Consultant community, we will expand the specialties offered in each category to better represent the value they can bring to the Great Commission.

Help us grow the catalog.

If you have ideas for categories or specialties, please share them. We want to hear from you as we grow the platform.

Your message has been submitted.
We will get back to you within 24-48 hours.

FAQ's

Everything you need to know about connecting for conversations.

Why is my connection request no longer available?

Another Kingdom Consultant accepted that request before you did

What does that mean? When a GCO creates a request for a one-hour call, we take that request and match it to up to four Kingdom Consultants (KCs). The first KC to accept that request is connected to the GCO. Anyone who didn't respond to that request will receive a notification informing them that the request is no longer available.

Worried that you won't get a chance to serve? Fear not! As we continue to onboarding new missions efforts around the world to be a part of Switchboard, you will receive more and more opportunities for you to impact the Great Commission.

Is my personal information secure when I create a profile?

All user information is stored in encrypted databases & transferred using encrypted internet protocols.

Can I customize the frequency and types of opportunities I get emailed?

At present, you cannot customize the frequency of opportunities you receive, as these are subject to demand. If you need to take a break from receiving opportunities through Switchboard, contact support@globalswitchboard.io and we will pause all incoming requests to your profile for a desired period of time. 

Switchboard offers opportunities for one hour calls through our platform based on the specialties listed in our catalog. If you no longer want to receive certain types of one hour conversations, edit your profile and remove the no-longer-desired specialty from your profile.

How often will I receive service opportunities in my email?

The volume of service opportunities you receive is entirely dependent on the number of Great Commission Organizations who are joining Switchboard and requesting conversation. On top of that, we don't see the same level of demand for every specialty we list in our catalog. As such, we cannot guarantee you any particular frequency of service opportunities.

The key here is to make yourself available for the Great Commission, invite missionaries, church planters, and ministry workers you know to join the platform. Please continue to pray that God multiplies the number of Great Commission Organizations on our platform.

Does Global Switchboard guarantee I'll find a service opportunity that matches my skill set?

We can guarantee that you will only receive opportunities to serve that match the specialties you add to your profile. However, we are always learning and trying to find ways to help translate needs into specialties. Sometimes our specialties miss the mark and we need to reword them or add new specialties to our catalog. Keep us posted by messaging our support team or making suggestions in our catalog so we can provide better matches over time.

Is there any financial compensation for providing my expertise?

On Switchboard, the expectation is for you to volunteer one hour of your time to share expertise and talk with a ministry worker in one of our Great Commission organizations. We are not a freelance site and do not support paid service providers operating through our platform. Once you've wrapped up that initial call, you are free to move on from the connection. We'll send you a short feedback form to ask how it went.

That being said, we've had several connections where both parties really connected and felt a shared sense of mission.

In those cases, those two have kept talking to one another for a few follow-up calls or even worked on a project together beyond that initial one-hour conversation. However, even in those cases, those users have maintained a volunteering relationship rather than a contractor/freelancer relationship.

How many requests can I make per month?

You can make as many requests as you want per month. Bring the needs and we will bring the Kingdom Consultants!

Can I connect with more than one GCO at a time?

Yes! You may connect with more than one GCO at a time.

But take into consideration that initial conversations may lead to more ways you may help that GCO if you so choose.

Let’s start with one connection and grow from there.

Can a conversation become a project?

Many times a simple conversation or task reveals a broader issue that requires more time.

Sometimes the KC from the initial conversation is able to work on the resulting project. But other times, they may not have the time or expertise needed. 

But don't worry. All you need to do is make another more specific request now that you know more clearly what you need.

How does the scheduling work?

You will initially direct messages through the Switchboard, where the communication will evolve into possible emails or texts.

Once connected, you can coordinate schedules and communication methods.

What is a conversation?

It's just a one-hour conversation around a specific topic. It could be done through a video conferencing tool, WhatsApp, or any number of other ways to connect.

This initial connection between the GCO and the KC is not necessarily to solve all the issues. Just make a connection first and discuss the topic or task at hand. If that task can be solved or a resolution plan layout within the hour, great.

At the end of the conversation, the GCO and the KC may mutually decide to continue the connection with a follow-up or a project if more help is needed.
