Launch Teams in the Balkans are looking for new team members who are ready to explore what God has for them in the region.

Many areas are moving to the Launch Team model of welcoming new field workers to the field. Launch Team members will spend two years learning the local language and culture while exploring ministry opportunities in the area. The hope is that teams would form within the Launch Team who would then be sent together to start new ministries in other parts of the region. During the two Launch years, Launch Team members will be fully engaged in ministry activities as well as studying language and culture.

The team’s purpose statement is: Our team exists to catalyse multiplication at all levels of disciple-making and church planting activities, and to do this in cooperation with local churches. Along the way we want to raise the standard of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, while simplifying what it means to be a church. We also seek to simplify the process of being a disciple by equipping everyone with simple, reproducible skills and methods that can be easily learned and taught to others, believing that 2 Timothy 2:2 holds some clues for multiplication of disciples and leaders.

The team welcomes people with any skills or gifting, but particular opportunities in the area currently include:

  • teaching english (or another foreign language)
  • inter-religious dialogue
  • journalism
  • performing arts (music, dance)
  • sports
  • advocating for life through a local pro-life project
  • peace and reconciliation activities
  • working with youth in local churches
  • IT
  • medical

Do you have a passion for relating to people in everyday skills and communication?

Our team is seeking passionate people (families or singles) to provide guidance, counselling, wisdom, instruction and mentorship in basic life skills. You will teach the deaf how to manage everyday tasks to help them gain independence and self worth and help them move forward in life. You will work one on one or in small groups to help the students develop life skills such as cooking, hygiene, how to handle money, computer skills and more.

A huge part of your mentoring will be helping them see their own self worth and improve their sense that they can go from where they are to where they want to be all while being effective for Christ. You will prepare evaluations and progress reports so the students and staff can see their progress.

Contact us today about using your life skills to make deaf disciples that make deaf disciples in Mexico.

One-Year Internship: Teach English in the Balkans

Duration
Mid-Term
Religion
Muslim | Unreligious | Catholic

Use your English skills to help a church planting team in the Balkans.

This country is one of the world’s newest, declaring independence in February 2008. The religion is predominantly secular Islam, with small Catholic and Orthodox communities. Protestants represent fewer than 1% of the population.

What is the vision for the one-year internship?

  • Join the existing church planting team to engage the local community in relationships through teaching English, baking, mountain biking and other gifts, skills or interests you bring to the table.
  • Gain practical church planting training with an experienced church planting team.
  • Learn language and culture while serving the community.
  • Be mentored by a more mature member of the field team.

What are the basic qualifications to apply?

  • You must be at least 18 years old and available to spend at least six months on the field.
  • Commitment to the spread of the gospel among the unreached.
  • Teaching experience is required, but experience teaching English is not necessary.
  • Member in good standing of a local church with a history of active involvement, service, good character, and teachability.
  • Humble, teachable spirit and commitment to grow in God’s grace.
  • A love for the gospel and commitment to being continually impacted by its power.

Who will the intern be serving alongside?

The field team is made up of two families: one with two small children, and one with older children. You will be serving as a full-fledged member of this team. The team have a strong concept of family and team, working closely together rather than each person focusing on his/her own ministry. They use the concept of a basketball team rather than a track team. They emphasise language and cultural proficiency in order to reach people in their heart language.

What ministry activities will the intern be involved with?

The team are in the first couple of years of a new church plant in a town of about 30,000 people. As of yet, there are no local believers, but the team have been received warmly and have had many opportunities to share the gospel. The team have about 50 youth and 10 adults involved in English, computer and guitar classes. They are also serving about 20 local doctors and nurses through practical skills training. They also organise Bible studies and host summer camps. And of course, they share the gospel within personal relationships.

In terms of English teaching, the team have over 40 students on the waiting list to join their courses. They use modern teaching techniques, including games, media projectors and iPads, to enhance their classes.

If you have some experience teaching English and have at least six months available, let’s talk and explore the possibilities!
