You will teach at a local seminary. Your special focus will be mobilizing and equipping students for mission to unreached peoples. You will have opportunities to reach out to unreached peoples yourself.
In your first one to two years, your focus will be language study and orientation; during which time you will be introduced to culture, language, religion, professional service, and the local churches. You will also have the opportunity to get to know future colleagues and to reach out to those that do not follow Jesus, learning about the struggles and difficulties that come with such a ministry.
After language and orientation, you will move to the target location (seminary), being part of the local/regional mobilization team.
You will be involved in both classroom teaching, and also less formal discipleship, coming alongside the students in their struggles and formation. The example of your own life will be very important. Therefore, you will be encouraged not only to prioritise holiness, but also to be active in reaching out to unreached people yourself.
You will also have opportunities to work in training, literature and resource work beyond the campus. In time, you may move to other cities or do seminars with other like-minded groups, e.g. non-theological students
Burdened to see Christ's love demonstrated among those of other faiths --- With some previous experience of church and mission ministry --- Equipped to serve God through biblical/theological understanding and teaching skills (a master's degree or higher is needed)--- Able to adapt culturally, and learn from and work alongside both local believers and foreign team workers --- practicing what you preach.
- Have a passion for God's glory
- Willing to join a team
- Having a servant heart
- Loving God and depending upon him alone through prayer
Those teaching at seminaries are usually located in larger cities or sometimes in rural areas. Most areas include a significant population of Muslims and Christians.
