Short-Term Christian School Teacher

Duration
5-10 months
Dates needed
August-May; August-December; or January-May
The Position

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!


Through this unique internship, you will be mentored by and serve alongside ABWE missionaries in Europe. You will have the opportunity to teach at the Evangelical Christian School Academy in Madrid, Spain.​

The Need

While Spain has been a religious country for centuries and many Spaniards know of Jesus, few know him intimately, particularly among the younger generation. Many Spanish cities and towns have no evangelical witness, and while it is a difficult environment for missions, the need is obvious, and the opportunities are abundant.

Since 1970, ABWE has been planting churches in Spain. While our missionaries are actively involved in some public ministries, the most effective approach seems to be “living-room evangelism”—using loving, persistent relationships to share the love of Christ and present the gospel through direct study of Scripture. Our desire is for Spaniards to meet Jesus in a personal way — so that they might find new life in him.

Is God is leading you to serve through missionary work and planting churches in Spain?

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.
