Children's worker

How do you feel when you see children instead of going to school, collecting plastic bottles to have enough to eat?  Would you like to be part of making a difference? Could you see yourself loving and teaching them, sharing God´s word of hope? OM Albania has a ministry aimed at these people, the Emanuel Center.
2 Years
Full Time
In Lushnje, we have been running the Emanuel Centre for 15 years, reaching out to Roma and Egyptian families. They are mostly illiterate and very few have jobs. So, they go to collect plastic bottles or beg. The children are forced to do the same if they want to eat and because of this they have almost no rights in Albanian society. They aren't thinking of the future – they live day by day.

We offer kids clubs and women's Bible studies and visit them in their houses to share God´s hope with them. In summer, we run evangelistic camps. We need people who like to play football with the boys or hang out with the girls and can be an example for them.

We are now moving this ministry to a new location in Vlore to reach out to others. We are in need of people who would like to help pioneer this endeavor.

You will need:
– Willingness to learn Albanian
– Humility
– Flexibility
– A love for people and for sharing the Gospel with them
– Knowledge of leading a Bible study
– Willingness to be a homework assistant
– Sport skills
– Playing the guitar would be nice
– An outgoing personality and find joy in making new relationships

This is not a paid position, financial support will need to be raised for life on the field.

Live opportunities are unsalaried. Most people joining OM have to raise financial support to cover their living expenses, usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters.

Interested?

Are you gifted at working with children? Would you like to develop your abilities in a team which is focused on children’s ministry in UK schools and churches? Are you interested in working with others to design, preparing and presenting creative programs with a clear, relevant Christian message? Would you like to learn new skills that you can use to reach children with the gospel and help them on their journey to becoming Jesus followers?
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 share our passion for these people to hear of His fame and renown? Come. Join one of our teams and be amazed at how God is working in lives and communities around the world, and be amazed at how He works in your life, as well. We are looking for you, and many more like you, to join us on this journey to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers established among the least reached all over the world.
