Mission Opportunities

There are a wide range of opportunities to help support the short-term needs of our missionaries.  These needs range in time from a few weeks to several months. We currently have requests for help with clerical support, children’s camps, remodeling projects, repair work, teachers’ aides, etc. A complete current list is below.

Brian Kramer from Cambridge, Minnesota, serves as CMML’s Short-Term Service Coordinator. If you’d like to get in touch with Brian to inquire about helping and learn more about the short term opportunities listed please contact him directly at bjkramer@cmml.us.

Missionaries may contact Brian to have their short term requirements added to the list.

PLEASE NOTE: Unless otherwise indicated, all of the opportunities listed below are VOLUNTEER positions. Volunteers are required to raise their own financial support.

Education

Strong Tower Christian School: Two of our full time English teachers will be traveling during the months of June & July to attend family functions. This means we will need to cover those classes. It is helpful to have the teaching preparation and ability but not necessarily a requirement as the lesson plans will be prepared before hand, it will be a matter of stepping in to teach them. So for whatever time you can consider from 2 weeks to 2 months, it's a great opportunity to serve the Lord and get involved. Feel free to contact me for more information.

Lord willing, on September 19, 2015 the ROCK International Youth Development Center in Kwara Tegui, Niger will celebrate its Grand Opening

This center will serve as a vehicle of showing the love of Jesus and clearly proclaiming the Good News to the children of Niger through an art center, athletic programs, preschool, music school, recording studio, agricultural program, and an outdoor amphitheater for hosting kid's clubs, camps, and Gospel-centered community events. 

With that news, we are looking to organize teams of construction and design workers to help outfit the center during the month of August 2015. Even a week of your time would be of great help. If you are interested in serving within this capacity and want more details or have questions, contact ROCK at info@rockintl.org

Education / Teaching English

Art Teacher and Other Volunteers Needed at the Elliot Christian School:

We need a mature believer who is an art teacher willing to step in right away and take care of our art classes.

We also need volunteers to teach English. This has become a permanent need for us… last year and the year before we worked with mostly non-native speakers since we didn’t have volunteers available. Experience or a teaching degree is not required since the lessons are already arranged.  What we need most is a chance for our students to hear and dialogue with a native English speaker!

Children's Work / Library

Help is needed SOON with a ministry for six weeks in April and May!

What we are looking for and what the volunteers will be doing:
1) Has to be female (because of housing options).
2) Has to be able to tolerate heat and humidity. April, May and the first two weeks of June are our worst months here for heat and humidity. It will be rough – even for those of us who are used to it. It will be hot. It will be humid. It will be tough. Anyone with a pre-existing health issue or thyroid problem might not do so well. (The good thing is that we will maximize morning hours for VBS and the hottest hours of the day will be inside under a fan in the library!) It will also be a wonderful opportunity to bless kids who get so excited about visitors and volunteers! 
3) It is all about kids, so we need someone who works well with children...and has lots of energy to keep up with them.
4) Experience doing VBS or Sunday school helps – we'll be planning to do three VBS locations. 
5) The volunteer doesn't need to teach lessons – those will be done by nationals in the national language, but she should have some ideas for games, crafts, activities etc. 
6) The Summer Fun at the Library program will be running at the same time. Someone with artistic ability would be fantastic for drawing competitions, crafts, etc.    
Is it safe?
We have decided that we will only be going to areas where we already have a Sunday school or ministry centre (with the goal of reaching new kids who can then be plugged into a kids club or Sunday  school already established). 
If you are interested or know someone who might be, let me know!

Children's Work / Education / Evangelism

Teams or individuals: Assist in door-to-door evangelism, open air evangelism, visitation, and children's work. People who have a lot of compassion for those who need help in reading, and also in growing in the Lord, or to assist in music, especially guitar, would be appreciated. Teams usually combine all of the above with a practical day of work, and then a weekend trip to Irish sites.

Individuals: We could use people with specialties, whether on a team, or individually.

Maintenance / Medical / Practical Helps

Bet Shalom: Although we have increased our regular help with cooking, cleaning and laundry to five eight-hour shifts per week, the ongoing need is to have more full-time missionaries to share the 24-hour schedule. Anyone wanting to give a few weeks, a few months or years would be welcome to talk to us if you have a real heart to serve the elderly and the community where they live. We need regular activities for our seniors. These are outings and rehabilitation that our current full-time missionary couple can scarcely do on top of all their other day-to-day responsibilities.

We also need a regular maintenance person who will keep the equipment and structure in tip top condition.

We are looking for workers who can come for a short or longer term visit to help with the renovation of the Bethesda Christian Centre located in the village of Zirnesti, Moldova. Once renovation is completed the centre will house a Medical Clinic, Nursing Home, Soup Kitchen and Coffeeshop, along with various other ministries.

Camp work / Literature / Medical / Practical Helps

We are undertaking a number of projects in the area and in 2010 established a mission base in the village of Zirnesti. God willing, next year we are planning to start a medical centre and nursing home ministry which will be in addition to other ministries that we are already undertaking (Postal Bible School, soup kitchen, children's camps, etc.).

We are very keen for brothers and sisters to come to visit us short term to assist with this. Both skilled and unskilled workers are needed.

Construction / Education / Technical

English Christian School. We are praying for an English Christian school to be used both as a tool and contact point for evangelism in this part of the country. We want to see the future destiny and leadership of this country transformed by the youths of today who are but leaders of tomorrow. We believe that, if we want to affect the future of a nation then we need to begin to impact and influence the youths of today and we believe one of the keys to that is quality education. Especially if offered by God fearing men and women.

The plan is to join hands with other ministries like mission bodies or Bible schools especially those who are offering teaching as a trade to those being trained as missionaries. Or individual believers who are teachers by profession who want to serve God using their profession as missionaries.  

We are overjoyed to announce to you all that, we have finally gotten land for the school in very conducive area. We are now working on the legalisation of it and on the documentation of the school. We are still praying for someone to do design and planning for the school.

Christian Books Melanesia has a need for an accountant to serve either short term (for 3 to 6 months) or (preferably) longer term (for 2 to 3 years). CBM is an Assembly ministry that produces literature for Papua New Guinea and the Pacific region and distributes through 10 Bible Bookstores throughout the country. The PNG brother who managed the accounting department needed to leave suddenly due to his family situation, and CBM definitely needs help. Anyone wishing for more information can write to Walter Wetzel at cbmpng@online.net.pg

Dorm Parents / Education / Maintenance

Some of our full time staff are leaving, so we need other teachers and dormitory staff to come join us.

Amano needs more help on the building site and with maintenance. A single man, someone retired or even a couple (he could help with the building site & she could help in the dorm or school) would be an answer to prayer.

Here at Amano there is always a need for short-term help in the classrooms, in the dormitories, with maintenance and with building projects. We welcome young people as well as older folk who have taken early retirement; plus all ages in between.

Education

February 2015 Update: Sakeji Mission School – needs:

  • Grade 1 Teacher – beginning January 2016. The current teacher has indicated she will not be at Sakeji beyond this calendar year. An Early Childhood Educator Certificate would be acceptable, but preferably someone with a degree and teaching experience in primary education.
  • Grades 2/3 and 4/5 teachers – beginning immediately: someone with a teaching degree and preferably teaching experience in primary/elementary education.  This is currently being covered by the headmaster and girls' dorm parent.

Sakeji Mission School – a rural, private boarding school established in 1925, providing quality education to children of missionaries and Zambians from various backgrounds. Our goal is to share God's Word, see young people enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord, and equip them to be leaders in their future families, communities, and nations. Student enrolment is growing slowly, with almost 90 students from Grades 1 through 9. Curriculum is sourced and adapted from the UK, America and Zambia. Sakeji School is relatively modern, with 24 hour power and comfortable staff dwellings.

Teachers are missionaries commended and supported by their local church. Teachers with training in special education or other specialized areas to work together with the classroom teachers are also needed.

 If interested check out their website www.sakeji.com

Please contact Mark Ronald at headmaster@sakeji.com
