Opportunity

Literacy Workers

The Position

Literacy workers will work alongside our nationals and assist with workship development and trainings.

The Need

In the Gambia, most people have never heard of Jesus Christ. About 90% of the Gambia’s two million people are Muslim, and evangelical believers make up less than one percent of the population. While English is the official national language of the Gambia, most unreached people groups speak the Wolof language. To minister to their spiritual needs, a willingness to learn their language and culture is necessary.

Although there are challenging barriers to missions in the Gambia, the rewards are great. Equipped with Bible resources in the Wolof language, people are responding to the message of Jesus Christ! God has opened doors to serve as a missionary in the Gambia, and we are in of more workers—will you help us introduce more people to the love of Jesus?

The Impact

Use your love for the language and your passion for equipping nationals to read the Word of God in their own language to share the Gospel. From training teachers to producing literature, our literacy ministries are bringing the message of the Gospel to the Wolof and other people groups around the world. At ABWE, we want to make sure the words of Jesus are clearly understood in every culture. We need qualified, creative people who are passionate about working with languages to reach others for Christ.
