Government Liaison

The Position

Help missionaries maintain a good relationship with the government of The Gambia and facilitate the smooth running of ABWE’s ministries in The Gambia as a government liaison.

As a government liaison you will:

  • Be the “face of ABWE” before The Gambian government
  • Meet with government officials when necessary
  • Renew annual papers necessary for ABWE personnel to work and live in country and oversee the writing of reports to be submitted to government offices
  • Attend occasional meetings/social events at the American Embassy
  • Develop redemptive relationships culminating in sharing the gospel and discipling new believers
  • Partner with nationals trying to establish local bodies of believers.
The Need

In The Gambia, you will spend time among people who have never heard of Jesus Christ. English is the official national language of The Gambia, but of the 17 unreached people groups living in this country, many don’t speak it — although many understand Wolof. To minister to their spiritual needs, we need team members with a willingness to learn their language and culture. Although the barriers to missions are great, so are the rewards — people call us every week because they want to learn more about Jesus Christ! With 90 percent of the population coming from a Muslim background, and two percent holding indigenous views, there is a tremendous need to share the hope found in Jesus Christ in The Gambia.

The Impact

As a government liaison in The Gambia, you will be in a unique position to develop meaningful relationships with Gambians in positions of influence. We desperately need more disciplemakers, like you, so that we can respond to The Gambia's growing hunger for the truth. Our vision is to have missionaries strategically located in every region so that we can evangelize, disciple, and prepare new believers in The Gambia to lead the churches of the future.

Currently, ABWE missionaries are working with the Wolof in The Gambia. Will you join our team and help us share the gospel to a nation hungry for truth?
