English Teachers

The Position

Do you have the training and experience to teach English successfully? Are you a committed Christian who feels called to use your skills in ministry and mission? Our Togo team desperately needs a qualified, missions-focused instructor to teach English effectively and develop important community relationships at our Togolese Christian Middle School.

As an English teacher, you will:

  • Use your outstanding communication and classroom skills to teach English as part of a Christian education to the Togolese people, while sharing your passion for the Word of God
  • Teach daily lessons, write lesson plans, help struggling students and participate in faculty meetings and trainings
  • Develop authentic relationships with your students and their family members, and encourage conversations about faith and Jesus Christ
  • Bring the skills you developed in past teaching experiences to your work in Togo, where you will demonstrate patience, compassion and a love for people
  • Set an excellent example by living a Christian lifestyle, and sharing your testimony with those who don’t know or understand the message of Jesus Christ
The Need

Togo is a small West African country, home to just over eight million people who make up at least 46 unique people groups, including many that are unreached with the saving knowledge of the gospel. Despite the prominent population of Christians (45%) and growth in followers of Islam (16%), over half of the Togolese syncretize native animistic practices and beliefs with their primary religion. Help is needed to advance the gospel, particularly among the younger generation.

Ministry opportunities in Togo have grown tremendously, and have even created a platform for outreach into neighboring countries. Whether through healthcare, education, providing Christian resources through print media and radio, or working with the growing local church to equip the next generation of national believers, there is an place for every missional skill set. Is God leading you to join us in ministry to the people of Togo?

The Impact

A Christian education is one of the most effective ways to reach and retain believers. Togolese believers requested Christian schools to help influence their children during these crucial years. As an English teacher, you’ll have an incredible opportunity to teach important skills while reinforcing a lifelong love for Christ. Please prayerfully consider joining us in Togo, where your skills can make a lasting impact on the leaders of tomorrow.
