Bible School Teachers

What a tremendous impact you personally can have on the lives of millions of Nigerians. Through training their pastors, teachers, and missionaries, and through developing a youth work programme, you will have an immediate effect on your students and, through them, on ordinary Christians right across Northern Nigeria.

Addis - Seminary (ETC/EGST) Instructor

Teaching and training church leaders is one of our top priorities, and here you will have a chance to be involved in a strategic programme which has an impact in Ethiopia and far beyond. You would teach in the areas of biblical studies and theology, although occasionally you may be asked to teach courses in other fields (e.g., homiletics, missions) at the Evangelical Theological College and take on some other routine responsibilities of a faculty member, including committee work, student advising, speaking in chapel and in community churches as the opportunity presents itself, etc.
