National Worker (non-U.S. worker)

A national worker is a citizen, born in or naturalized in the country where an organization conducts missionary activity—a co-laborer and partner who desires that the Gospel be preached and the evangelical church in his or her country be established and grown to point of reproduction.

The service of national workers may either be as employees (hired) or as missionaries (primarily supported locally). A national worker does not need a visa to enter or work in his or her home country.
