TEAM is launching a new ministry in the town of Goz Beida, the political and economic center of the Dar Sila region in eastern Chad. This region is home to several unreached people groups, including the predominant Dar Sila Daju people. There is also a significant refugee population from the Darfur region of Sudan that numbers between 50,000 to 100,000. Almost all of these people groups are Muslim and unreached by the Good News.
We desire to live out our faith among the people, aiming to help with both their physical and spiritual needs. We seek to establish an indigenous, culturally sensitive reproducing community of disciples in each of the main people groups in the Dar Sila region. An experienced TEAM Chad missionary is leading this ministry, working in partnership with the local evangelical church to build friendships by using avenues that may include programs for education, agriculture/water, technical training, healthcare, and counseling.
Teachers are needed to help in a Christian school in the Goz Beida region. The goal of the teachers is to shine Jesus’ love into the children’s lives, develop relationships with the children and their families, and help the Chadian teachers learn more about Biblical worldview Christian education and how to apply this in their classrooms. Teachers will be working with an existing Christian primary school run by the one evangelical church in the area.
Qualifications and Experience:
Strong Biblical foundation and understanding of the spiritual gift of teaching
Depending on length of term, degree in Education or related field of study preferred; informal training in teaching is also acceptable
At least two years of teaching experience
Training in Muslim ministry will be helpful (but not required for short-term)
Willingness to live in an underdeveloped town and work on a team
Vibrant and growing relationship with Christ and good prayer life
At least a one year equivalency of Bible education
Languages used in this region include Chadian Arabic, French, and local languages; language learning requirement would depend on specific ministry
