We provide a place to stay, three good meals a day, Christian parenting and discipline, and all educational needs. All this to give glory to God.

Mission On The Move has spent the last five years in transition and we are in a great place right now. Our work is focused and clear. We have a solid presence in Mexico and Honduras and a mission we can articulate. We have an incredible group of partners, we have a solid financial base, our operations are streamlined and lean, our missionary teams are stable, and our accountability is evident.

 We are approaching a new time in the growth of our organization. Our Executive Director, Ernie Sizemore, who has led us through these transitions, has been the right leader for MOM.  His experience in organization and problem solving has established operational and financial policies and procedures that have secured our financial security. Ernie is now ready to fully focus on the mission in Honduras and wishes to pass the torch a new Executive Director.  He has committed to leading MOM until a suitable Executive Director can be transitioned into the role, regardless of how long that may take.

 As a missionary sending organization, we are seeking a Christian Executive Director who can lead our Strategic Planning process and growth, while keeping our organizational focus on Christ. We need your help to find the right person to lead our organization.
