Teacher of English in Central Asia to join a ministry team - for minimum of two years
A native English speaker with TESOL credentials, or a willingness to attain those through some short-term trainings, is a key to our sustainability because of pronunciation, market appeal (foreign teacher) and the fragrance of Christ that he / she will bring to the Teacher team and associated Administrators / Student Sales personnel. Target audience is primarily Central Asian agricultural university students, with some faculty or agricultural researchers in their midst.
Joins a team of 6 Central Asian English Teachers (5 female, 1 male) and an American couple with agricultural backgrounds and a love for rural people. The team is growing in the areas of online teaching, hybrid programs (online and classroom) and English for Specific Purposes (ESP) including especially Agriculture, Agribusiness, Business, and Engineering.
This nation and most of Central Asia is agrarian, with ½ the population living in rural areas. Most of the agricultural university students will eventually return to their economically disadvantaged regions, marry and raise their families in perpetual, relative poverty … unless they meet Christ and have a purpose for living – which can include them becoming managers and entrepreneurs in their rural economy.
Native English speaker (preferred). Associate Arts university degree (minimum preferred though life experience can substitute). Funded by donors preferred though there are remote possibilities for supplemental income here in Central Asia though we will not reject a well financially established retiree who self-funds.
Passions / Character / Skills / Experience
Love for Christ and established devotional life (minimum)
