The Position

We are looking for individuals with a teaching degree who enjoy ministering to young students and their families. The teacher would teach their class subjects for the entire school day on the school grounds at the Santiago Christian Academy, in Santiago Chile. Teachers receive a furnished apartment and majority of your utility expenses paid each month.

Specific grade needs:

  • 1st grade (many come in knowing very little English but pick it up quickly)
  • 2nd grade
  • 5th grade
  • 6th grade
  • Teacher aides for Pre-K, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th grade

The Need

Seeing the need for vibrant, relational evangelism, local church leaders in Chile welcome missionaries with open arms. National believers are eager to work side-by-side with missionaries to find new ways to serve and spread the gospel. Chile has become a launching pad for missionaries into unreached areas and even across borders into other countries in the Americas.

ABWE Chile believes strongly in team ministry. While some work alone and do individual ministry, we also encourage missionaries to work together in partnership with nationals and with other ABWE missionaries. If you want to be a part of a team of disciple makers building on the strong foundation of years of faithful service from past ABWE missionaries, our Chilean team needs you!

The Impact

The foundation of faith is understanding, and the foundation of understanding is education. As a teacher missionary, you have the unique opportunity to use their classroom as place of ministry. Along with teaching about grammar and algebra, they are able to disciple their students and point them to the ultimate teacher: Jesus. The world needs more teachers like you because we firmly believe a biblically-based education is integral in raising up strong followers of Christ.
