Opportunity

Maintenance & Construction Specialists

The Position

We have a significant need for maintenance and construction specialists in Southern Togo.

Right now, the teams in Togo are in need of people willing to serve as short and long-term missionaries who are not doctors, teachers, or pastors. Both of our hospitals - Hôpital Baptiste Biblique (south) and Hospital of Hope (north)—as well as our Village of Light School for the Blind (also south) are in urgent need of more folks who can come and assist with manual labor. Our “behind the scenes” maintenance teams need you.

Scott Wolford, mid-term missionary with ABWE, is serving at Togo’s southern hospital as a maintenance worker. In the States, Scott worked for a largely successful electric company. He says, “God showed me through His word that the Great Commission is for all Christians, not just certain ones. And since my skill set is working with my hands, I had to learn what it meant to use these skills to bring glory to God.” Scott said yes to serving a two-year term in Togo, West Africa by using his unique skills for the Lord’s work. He is one of a very limited number, however.

At this time, Togo needs more people who are willing to also say yes to God’s call; those who are willing to come and work behind the scenes so that people like the doctors and chaplains can work without being distracted by technical issues. Our maintenance crews currently have more work in front of them than they can handle alone. Without more people, projects will continue to pile up and it could begin to affect the work being done on the “front end” of various ministries.

The Need

Togo is located within the “10/40 Window,” which stretches from the West Africa, North Africa, and the Middle East to East Asia--a geographic area characterized by poor quality of life, the fast growth of Islam, and little access to the gospel. We are looking for talented teammates to join our group of missionaries who are involved in a variety of ministries including medical evangelism, a school for the visually impaired, pastoral training, aviation ministries, Christian education, and so much more.

The Impact

The ABWE Togo team has been spreading the gospel and making disciples in Togo since 1974. We’ve seen many lives changed by God’s word and the Holy Spirit. Please consider strengthening our team by joining with us in pursuit of the ministry that God has provided for us in Togo.


Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis, ABWE is limiting international travel of short-term missionaries originating from the US and assessing the level of risk per country per US State Department guidelines. To inquire about travel restrictions or exceptions, please contact go@abwe.org. We would love to talk to you!
