Would you provide confidential, trained, pastoral care for our team? In a country where evacuations are common and crises normal, having a capacity for skilled debriefs and effective follow-up is very important. You would also be a safe place to discuss the everyday stresses of life and deal with problems early on and in a healthy way. You would support our goal of having effective, thriving missionaries witnessing of Christ's love in South Sudan!
Your professional medical skills are needed in South Sudan. The health needs of Sudan's people are tremendous, and resources are minimal. Maternal mortality is the highest in the world; the heavy burden of infant and pediatric disease is barely touched.
Has God gifted you with leadership and management skills? Are you a people person? He may be leading you to our field!
The Sudan field has many operations running concurrently. There is an important need to normalize all of our operations with respect to the community and government entities. The Base Administrator position is key in organizing the many projects that operate in a given location. It is also an opportunity to give a clear face to SIM in the field.
Do you thrive on challenge? Do you have a vision for providing health management in the most needy and hard-to-reach communities? Do you have a heart to share Jesus' love with those who have never heard? Do you have leadership and administrative gifts? Are you flexible and willing to live where the peace is fragile? If this is you, then pray about joining our Health Project Team as Assistant Health Program Manager and know the joy of serving in the place Jesus has prepared for you.
The South Sudan team needs a Personnel Coordinator from mid-2015. The current instabilities are opening up many opportunities with unreached people groups, and we want to see our team grow. Would you come to mobilise and support our team to thrive in the hard places where Gospel seeds are planted? Please pray about whether this could be you!
As part of the Doro Primary Health Care Centre, the Nutrition Village fulfills SIM's strategy to rebuild Sudan, church and nation, by providing urgently-needed health care for the people of this war-torn nation. Specifically, infant and child malnutrition is a huge problem affecting the Mabaan people. Infant mortality is greater than 130 per 1000 population. Crisis treatment as well as support and education are a critical need.
As Sudan seeks to recover from its long civil conflict, education will prevail as one of the country's single greatest needs. In an effort to rebuild this sector of the country, we are holistically reaching for the recovery of the country and of the church. It's in this setting that SIM Sudan is looking for an Operations Manager for the budding Sudan Interior Church secondary school.
Help develop a biblical worldview by sharing the chronological stories of the Bible that Sudanese can then go out and teach themselves. Seventy-five percent of Southern Sudanese are not literate, even in their mother tongue. Important Bible teaching materials from the rest of the world often assume people can read and write. Therefore, storytelling in a chronological way presents the whole truth of the Scripture in the way oral people think--narration of stories. Work alongside a 30-year veteran missionary to learn your trade!
The adult literacy rate in South Sudan is one of the lowest in the world. You can help to rebuild this shattered society by training people from different language groups to write and produce literacy materials. We see literacy training as a vital part of our overall goals in South Sudan, and it is a wonderful entry strategy into the community for anyone with a heart for discipleship.
Missionary children are important, and a Bible club type programme is needed for our Spiritual Life Conference in January every year. Can you come as a team to provide a group of children aged about 6-12 with a fun-packed, stimulating, and spiritually enriching programme? You will gain at least as much as they do!
