Opportunity

Ministry and Business Coordinators

The Position

We need someone who can provide specific direction for the team of missionaries, Togolese supervisors, and staff who help run a variety of ministries, including the Village of Light school, an aquaponics system, a ministry to the blind, an artisan boutique, and property and building maintenance.

This role entails working with local community leaders and government officials. We are looking for someone who has solid business and communication skills, as well as a heart of compassion. You would be able to work hand-in-hand with our Togolese brothers and sisters to shine the light of Christ in the community.

The Need

Togo is located in West Africa, a geographic area characterized by poor quality of life and little access to the gospel. Muslims are the fastest growing religious group in the country and nearly one-in-three Togolese practice some form of animism. The country has seen little evangelical outreach and maintains one of the highest percentages of un-evangelized local religions in all of Africa.

ABWE began working in the country in 1974 ministering in Togo through the ministries of healthcare and education. Our vibrant ministry outreaches have expanded and now include two hospitals, a school for the visually impaired, an aquaponics farm, a Christian radio station, translation ministries, community health outreach and much more. With so many ministries and so much work to do, we need you in Togo. Will you join us?

The Impact

The Village of Light is a tool to bring the visually impaired youth and young adults of Togo to Christ. The visually impaired make up 20 percent of the population of Togo, and neighboring Ghana and Benin, but this group is often abandoned or looked down upon by their communities. It is a joy to see our students understand God’s love. For over 40 years, we have been reaching the visually impaired community, and today our students are working in schools, government positions, and running their own small businesses.

Several years ago, we also launched a new aquaponics ministry to help feed our students healthy vegetables and fish. We recently began using this ministry to connect with our communities by selling our product, in partnership with our community and health evangelism team that presents the gospel through health lessons.

We’d love to talk to you about this opportunity.
