Children and Youth Ministry Workers

Would you like God to use you to transform the lives of children in Burkina Faso? SIM Burkina has existing ministries among both children and older youth. Opportunities are numerous for anyone with a heart for children and youth to plug into an existing ministry. There is also plenty of potential for expanding these ministries or starting new ones in different areas. In this ministry, you will partner with local churches and associations to train local children's workers to effectively teach children the Gospel in urban and rual settings.

Today for Tomorrow

SIM has a children's project called Today for Tomorrow in the Region of Southern Africa, currently being directed by SIM missionaries in Zimbabwe. They are looking for volunteers with a heart for reaching and discipling children to join them and assist in the various facets of the ministry. The ministry covers twelve countries in Southern Africa.

Tigray - Eritrean Refugee Youth Outreach

Do you enjoy working with youth? Do you have a passion to give them hope in Jesus?
As a Refugee Youth Worker, you have an exciting opportunity to use your creativity to make relationships with and disciple youth in the Me'eyne refugee camp. Seventy-five to ninety percent are young males below the age of 25, with little to occupy their time in constructive means. It is a dangerous situation for the few females and minors present. Most are hoping to one day move to a Western country but are ill prepared with skills that will help them.

Children's Worker or Lecturer for Children's Work

Are you gifted in children's work? Did you know there is a place for you in missions?
SIM Namibia with NETS (Namibian Theological Seminary) would like to recruit a children's worker to teach at the seminary about 5-10% of the time and spend the rest in churches and para-church organizations training children's workers. Namibia has a high percentage of children but very few people who know how to work with them.

Mitchells Plain Children's Worker

The Mitchells Plain area of Cape Town has an incredible number of children! These children need to hear the Gospel and understand that Jesus lived, died, and rose again for them. If God has equipped you to work with children, this could be an opportunity for you to partner with a church to share the amazing work of God with children in its community.
This will not be an easy task. Great social problems exist within this area. However, God is far bigger than any of these and to have the opportunity to share Him with these children is a great privilege.
