MK Teachers

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 go@abwe.org to discuss service opportunities and exceptions. We would love to talk with you!​

Are you a teacher? Tired of conventional classroom settings?

Numonohi Christian Academy is an exceptional K-12 grade school run by New Tribe Missions. They graciously allow our missionary kids (MKs) and others to enroll their children. We have partnered with them in the education of our missionary kids (MKs) for decades. They have continual challenges to fill their teaching positions to meet the needs of the students enrolled in their school. Though not an ABWE ministry, we have helped to provide teachers for this amazing ministry that touches the lives of our MKs, and national children as well. It is a great opportunity to provide quality education for the children of ministry parents. You can minister to them, so they too, can minister to others.

The Need

Almost 90 percent of Papua New Guineans would claim to be Christians but for most, that means they attend church on the weekend and do what ever they want the rest of the week. After WWII, new religions flooded into PNG. The Guineans took western religion and mixed it with the animism and spirit worship; a mixture of religion they have continued to hold since. PNG is lost, but won't admit it.

We need men and women to share the pure and true gospel with a people who have experienced religion, but not true Christianity. Will you join us?

The Impact

The foundation of faith is understanding, and the foundation of understanding is education. As a teacher missionary, you have the unique opportunity to use their classroom as place of ministry. Along with teaching about grammar and algebra, they are able to disciple their students and point them to the ultimate teacher: Jesus. The world needs more teachers like you because we firmly believe a biblically-based education is integral in raising up strong followers of Christ.
