The Position

The Greater Lisbon Christian Academy has openings for elementary and secondary teachers who want to minister in English to a variety of nationalities, both believers and non-believers, for the sake of the Kingdom. Your experience here will include ministry with a supportive team.

Current Needs:

  • Two Elementary Teachers for Kindergarten, 3rd/4th, 5th/6th
  • Two to Three Secondary Teachers for History, Language Arts, Science
  • Special Needs Aide
  • K-12 Music Teacher
  • K-12 Physical Education Teacher
  • Elementary Aide
  • Administrative Assistant

The Need

Portugal is a nation whose people are predominantly Roman Catholic. The influences of the European Union, materialism and secularism grow unchecked. Over the past 20 years, the ABWE missions team planted seven churches in addition to our teaching centers, and eight of our nine church plants are pastored by Portuguese leaders.

Working as an ABWE missionary, you’ll support and collaborate with our national pastors and churches to plant at least one national church, pastor, and missions team within Lisbon’s four quadrants. This effort requires goal-focused believers who believe in collaboration, flexibility, and creativity, and who can share the Word of God with passion and accuracy.

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 your classroom as a place of ministry. Along with teaching about grammar and algebra, you will be able to disciple your 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.


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!
