Maintenance & Construction Position

The Position

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, ABWE has canceled most international travel originating from the U.S. until the State Department drops the Global Health Advisory to a Level 2 or lower. However, please email our Mobilization team at thunsicker@abwe.org to discuss service opportunities and exceptions. We would love to talk with you!​

We are looking for someone to join our team and aid our facilities with maintenance and construction. Some of the tasks included would be:

  • Carpentry projects
  • Electrical and solar work
  • Plumbing
  • Car Maintenance
  • And much more!

The Need

In The Gambia, and you’ll 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, many don’t speak the language. Wolof is commonly understood among these people groups. To minister to their spiritual needs, a willingness to learn their language and culture is necessary.

Although the barriers to missions are great in The Gambia, 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 2 percent holding indigenous views, there is a tremendous need to share God’s message of faith and grace.

The Impact

Use your construction skills on the mission field to make an eternal impact. On the mission field, trade workers do more than build or maintain structures; they help us build the kingdom of God. From building hospitals and churches, to constructing ministry schools, to helping maintain our current ministry properties, missionaries with construction experience and trade skills help us build and maintain the facilities we need to reach people for Christ. With 50 construction projects happening in 20 different countries and countless buildings that need maintained, we are always in need of skilled people like you.
