Ministry and Business Coordinator

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 a small West African country, home to just over eight million people who make up at least 46 unique people groups, including many that are unreached with the saving knowledge of the gospel. Despite the prominent population of Christians (45%) and growth in followers of Islam (16%), over half of the Togolese syncretize native animistic practices and beliefs with their primary religion. Help is needed to advance the gospel, particularly among the younger generation.

Ministry opportunities in Togo have grown tremendously, and have even created a platform for outreach into neighboring countries. Whether through healthcare, education, providing Christian resources through print media and radio, or working with the growing local church to equip the next generation of national believers, there is an place for every missional skill set. Is God leading you to join us in ministry to the people of Togo?

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.
