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.

Launch into Ministry in the Balkans

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

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.

Are you a good fit for the Highlands Team? Are you passionate about God’s name being worshipped and his kingdom filling the forgotten ends of the earth? Will you accept the privilege of introducing Jesus to a people who have never before had the chance to hear his good news?

A passion for social and environmental justice? Are you motivated and eager to learn? Do you like a good laugh? If your answer to all this is a resounding YES, let’s talk. 🙂

Our team is looking for teammates who are spiritually mature and growing in a relationship with God. Candidates should be humble, teachable, flexible, motivated, light-hearted, able to live and work in a pioneering environment, have a capacity for hardship, and be passionate about God and his Kingdom. We desire teammates who can contribute meaningfully to our management and consulting company. Our current business focus is promoting eco-tourism and arranging tours around our region with a client base from the international backpacking community. Such skills would include business, finance, administration, public relations, marketing, writing, photography, videography, design, customer service, networking, resource investigation, and a love and interest for people, social justice, conservation, culture, trekking, and camping. There may be opportunities for consulting in English education or agriculture for a candidate with highly developed skills and initiative in these fields.

Be part of an agricultural business focussed on chocolate production and processing. 
 

A new team in rural Oceania is looking for help growing (literally!) their chocolate business. They are looking for a person or multiple people with agricultural experience to help in establishing and managing chocolate fields as they try to increase production. The role could suit a short or long term candidate. The team have specifically requested short term help (up to a year) initially as one of the two families will be away from July 2018 until the end of the year. 

The business provides opportunities to build relationships with people at many different levels of society, from rural farming families to government officials, and we hope that as these relationships grow and deepen, they will lead to life-transforming discipleship movements among all unreached peoples in the area.

If you have agricultural experience and are interested in knowing more, we’d love to hear from you.  Get in touch today!
