Albania needs someone who is passionate about evangelism and enjoys motivating people to serve and be involved in mission.

Take that teaching diploma and invest in the lives of ‘missionary kids’ along the Silk Road.  Whether you’re a recent graduate or come with a lifetime of experience, whatever discipline you teach, MKs aged 5-18 are waiting for you!  You’ll play a vital role in the growth of the church as you release parents for ministry. We’re looking for teachers who are learners too, as you step out of your comfort zone and experience life in a unique culture.
Do you have a compassionate heart for refugees and are capable to teach either the English or German language (basic to intermediate) to both adults and kids? If you are a self-motivated teacher who enjoys a new challenge and wants to work toward the purpose of reaching those who have never heard the gospel before, consider using your skills with OM. Participation in local ministry and team life may also be aspects of your role.
In teaching cosmetology to deaf students you will join a team that is empowering and equipping a marginalized people group as they positively impact their lives and those in their families. It will be your job to design and implement lesson plans that will help your students to effectively learn the skills needed to be an excellent hairdresser, make-up artist, and/ or manicurist.
Since our beginnings, we have been driven by a deep conviction that everyone should have the opportunity to hear the gospel at least once. Sadly, there are still thousands of peoples and communities that have never heard about Jesus, ever. Do you have a heart for (young) people and a desire for them to hear of His fame and renown? Come and be involved in many different activities including kids clubs, Big Red Bus ministry, creative evangelism and much more!
