Our vision is to see Vietnam transformed through indigenous, biblical movements of reproducing communities of believers in every segment of society, obeying Jesus and His Great Commission.
Are you willing to come to Vietnam as an English teacher and use the many opportunities that exist through this role to serve God, be part of our team and realize this vision?
In an environment where many have open hearts and are ready to hear the truth of the gospel you will find opportunities to share with colleagues and students. We are committed to make disciples who are obedient to Jesus; so through these relationships you will walk alongside people as they either integrate into existing churches or, through their own networks, form communities of believers. We focus on group discipleship approaches and seek to equip people to disciple others.
Working in an English language school, usually part time, is usually necessary in order to obtain a work visa. But there are also many opportunities and needs beyond this formal role, for example:
English teachers are also needed to assist Vietnamese pastors, theological students and other Christian workers to improve their English and helping them learn Christian and theological vocabulary.
For those who come long term and gain a high level of Vietnamese and understanding of the local culture, there are opportunities in the development of Christian books and other written resources in the Vietnamese language.
We are also developing oral Bible storying resources, which are effective for reaching out and discipling those who prefer non written methods of communication. You will be able to train local believers to use these techniques for evangelism and church planting within their own people and beyond.
You will be based in an urban setting and be part of a small local team for mutual encouragement, fellowship, prayer and worship. As we are committed to the growth of the local church, you will commit to being part of a local Vietnamese fellowship. You should be aware that gospel work in Vietnam requires wisdom and discretion; we follow certain security precautions (especially in communication) and seek to work with sensitivity to the local situation, whilst remaining bold with the gospel. Living standards in Vietnam are lower than in most sending countries, and you will need flexibility to face the challenges of living in a cross-cultural setting. Long term workers will initially be in a two year program of Vietnamese language and culture integration.
TESOL certificate (or similar) and preferably English teaching experience.?br>You should have experience in personal evangelism and discipleship, and have a good grasp of biblical truth.
