Teachers for Christian School

Opportunity in South America


This opportunity is with TEAM ministry partner South America Mission (SAM). SAM is an evangelical and interdenominational mission organization with a vision to see the church of Jesus Christ multiplied across South America, transforming local communities and the world by embodying the kingdom of God. SAM works in five countries in South America: Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Peru, and Paraguay. SAM’s missional emphases include incarnational living, reproducing authentic disciples of Jesus, multiplying churches and church networks, training Godly leaders, and enabling transformational initiatives within the local church.

Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center (SCCLC) is a premier international K-12 academy in Bolivia’s largest city. Santa Cruz is a bustling metropolis and SCCLC is a dynamic ministry reaching the lives of students and parents, helping to build up the next generation of leaders.

At SCCLC, future leaders receive a comprehensive and multilingual Christian education that exceeds national and international academic standards, preparing its students spiritually, academically, and socially to transform their world. With less than 250 students, approx. 80% of whom are Bolivian nationals, SCCLC creates a relaxed and intimate educational environment, giving staff and faculty the opportunity to engage Bolivia’s next generation of leaders at a personal level, and affect substantive change in one of South America’s least developed nations. The duration of this role ranges from 9 months to 2 years or more.

Beyond the walls of the school, SAM missionaries are engaged in church-planting and mission mobilization alongside the vibrant national-led churches of Santa Cruz. As such, SCCLC’s missionary staff have opportunities to see and contribute to a wide variety of missional activity throughout Santa Cruz.

TEAM and SAM are very pleased to be working together to advance the Kingdom of God throughout South America. In this instance, interested parties may inquire and apply with TEAM or SAM, but will serve with SAM in Bolivia.
