Opportunity

Theological Educator

The Position

For this position, we are looking for someone who:

1. Holds a Masters degree or higher from a reputable seminary.

2. Develops syllabi and student learning assessments.

3. Has a passion to mentor pastors and other church leaders.

4. Communicates cross-culturally.

French language skills are preferred, but no required for short-term teaching trips. Teachers will be required to sign our Baptist doctrinal statement.

The Need

Currently, one of the greatest obstacles to church planting in Togo is the lack of trained church leaders. The Togo South Team has always had a desire to train national church pastors and leaders and has therefore been conducting ministry training in Togo for many years through the Bible institute. All ABWE-planted churches are led by Togolese pastors who have a great desire for evangelism and and have in turn started many daughter churches throughout Togo. Too many of these church plants have pastors with little to no theological training. Some churches have no pastor and have sent candidates to the Bible Institute to be trained. The purpose of the Bible Institute is to equip these men, giving them Bible and Theological training so that they can be effective in their ministries to the churches.

ABWE has partnered with several like-minded missionaries and pastors in Togo to form the Faculté Biblique du Togo, a Bible college which provides classes for 2-year and 4-year training programs in multiple locations in the country.

The Impact

Make a large and lasting impact through theological education. Theology can mean life or death for a new church on the mission field. That’s why we need people who are passionate about teaching the theological truths of the Bible to men and women who will lead others into true, saving faith in Jesus Christ — and in Him alone. If you love building up leaders and helping people go deep with our infinite God, then we have a place for you.

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