Join one of several teams in a large North African city.

Multiple teams in a large North African city are opening their doors to people with several skillsets to help make disciples and plant churches all over the region. They are looking for:

  • web developers
  • medical professionals
  • digital and social media marketers
  • app developers
  • videographers
  • video editors
  • photographers
  • writers
  • experienced English teachers (with TOEFL certification)
  • business innovators and entrepreneurs
  • children’s workers (single people only, please)
  • university students
  • refugee workers

All new candidates would need to start their ministry on the Equipping Team, where they will learn the language and culture of the area. Those who already speak the majority language would be able to join a team immediately rather than starting with the Equipping Team. All team members are also involved in discipleship and church planting activities. Additionally, anyone wishing to join one of the teams must be willing and able to adapt to living in a very urban environment.  Positions are available on a long-term, mid-term and short-term basis.

To find out more about these teams, don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our mission mentors.

Not exactly what you’re looking for? Pioneers has hundreds of cross-cultural mission opportunities available – far too many to list on our website. Get in touch with our mission mentors to find an opportunity that’s right for you!

The missionary will need to raise funds to join this ministry.

Calling all Extroverted Cheese-Makers!

Use your love of all things cheesy to help bring the love of Jesus to North Africa.

A team in North Africa is looking for teammates who have an entrepreneurial spirit and a willingness to try new things in order to bring the love of Jesus to their city. At the moment, they are running a professional skills training centre, and while they’d love to have people join them in this business, they’re also eager to welcome entrepreneurs of all kinds.

The team is located in a coastal city that is a little less conservative than the rest of the country, and is more urban and touristy, so just about any business idea could work. In particular, they’re looking for people to start businesses in:

  • Photography
  • English Teaching
  • Fitness/Health
  • And yes, CHEESE-MAKING!

Any idea is welcome, but more important is the type of person the team is looking for. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter, willing to learn two languages, an extroverted, relational, out-of-the-box thinker. They will be interested in influencing and shaping what’s going on in the work, and will be thinking long-term – without an end date in mind.

The opportunities are endless, really! If you think God might be calling you to this type of ministry, let us know! We’d love to talk through the possibilities with you.

 

Candidates will need to raise financial support to join this ministry.

NB: The opportunities listed on our website are only a small percentage of the available opportunities. To find out about more possibilities, please don’t hesitate to contact our mobilisation team.

Choose Your Own Adventure: the Arabian Peninsula

The Arabian Peninsula (AP) is full of opportunities for professionals who want to live out their Christian faith cross-culturally. 

The AP is a very expensive place to live and most countries place a high value on professional contribution, so anyone who is prepared to work a normal 40-hour work week on top of personal and team-based ministry time is an ideal fit for the region.

Possible job opportunities include:

  • Medical
  • Humanitarian aid / refugee work
  • Consulting
  • Business / entrepreneurship
  • Teaching / higher education
  • Sports coach
  • Marketing

It is advised that anyone seeking employment in the AP begin to learn Arabic before arrival. Although learning a language by immersion (in-country) is generally preferable, it is unlikely that a person would be able to balance full time language learning with full time employment, so a basic knowledge of Arabic would be beneficial.

Our mobilisation team would love to chat more with you about the possibilities, so if you’d like to know more, feel free to get in touch!

Get Creative in North Africa

Several teams in North Africa are looking for energetic, adventurous people to join them.

After more than a century of faithful work in the region, there are now believing groups in every major city. Praise God! But with a total of less than 5000 active Christians, there is so much still to do! Many towns of 100,000 have no known Christian and no workers. Our challenge is to go beyond the major cities and make the Good News of Jesus available to all.

Long term, it is not difficult to set up in business, there are widespread needs for rural and health development, there are opportunities to offer healthcare (though not to practice hands-on medicine) and there is always a need for teachers.

Other opportunities/needs include:

  • IT Consulting
  • Teaching art or music
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Tourism services
  • Agriculture
  • Martial Arts

Team members must be willing to learn at least two languages. You must also be willing to spend much of your time building relationships and spending time with local people. Having professional skills and experience as well as the ability to work autonomously is also a plus. There are currently six teams in the area, so there’s a lot of opportunity to find one that fits you and your gifts.

Social Work in North Africa: Social workers are needed to work in a women’s prison and with single mother rehabilitation.

Come to a country where everyone, by law, should be Muslim. This place has a beautiful history and attracts a lot of tourism, but it is also in desperate need of people who will focus on rural areas and marginalised people.

The team focuses on reaching out to the disabled, women and at-risk children. They also minister in the areas of health care and agriculture. Your social work degree and background would be a huge help as the team seeks to bring the gospel to the women’s prison and through single mother rehabilitation.

Scuba Dive Master needed: Use your love of diving and the ocean to further the kingdom in a challenging place.

A Pioneers team in the Middle East needs someone to join their team and focus on an established scuba diving business as a dive master.  Scuba diving would be part of the overall ministry effort of making new disciples in this Muslim community.  The team will provide fellowship, accountability, and guidance into the local culture.

The team asks that a person commits to a three to six-month minimum stay. Ideally, a person ready to commit several years to the ministry would be best for the kingdom effort in this city.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, get in touch today.
