Mission Opportunities For Teachers

Overseas Mission Opportunities for Teachers

As a missionary, God has called you to build His Kingdom using all the gifts He has provided to you. Whatever your unique skill set is, answering the call to serve as a missionary puts you on a journey to use your gifts all in His time.

If you’re an educator, your time to serve is now. SAMS has an abundance of theology mission opportunities for teachers and educators worldwide. Join us by building relationships with your new students and introducing them to the most important teacher in their life — Jesus Christ.

Advance the Gospel Through Education

Education is an opportunity to share the glory of God with students through teaching about His world and His Word. Teachers are a necessary part of all our lives, and as a missionary, you’ll be taking education to the places in the world that need it most. Whether you’re experienced with early-childhood, K-12 or post-secondary education, there is a need for Christ-loving educators across the globe.

Being a teaching missionary is an enriching experience. Along with teaching underprivileged children to read, write, and do arithmetic, you’ll be able to share the light of Christ. By providing the truth of the Gospel in ways children can understand, such as stories and games, you’ll give them the foundational knowledge they need to become lifelong believers and share the word of God with their friends, family and community.

Teachers for higher education are also needed. Help equip adults young and old for vocations serving the Lord in a variety of fields, like business or law. Assist seminaries in training the next generation of pastors and ministry leaders with theological and ministry education. By teaching and mentoring local Christians in ministry, you support them to reach their own communities and cultures with the hope of the Gospel.

Partnering with SAMS for your overseas mission will help you bring new disciples to Christ and grow our global Anglican family. Providing education to children will enable their families to be part of a community that shows Jesus’s love and devotion. By the grace of God, empowering children and adults with Christ-centered education is a missions teaching opportunity that continues to impact communities long after your ministry work is done.

Where We Need Teachers

Our services span over 30 countries on six continents, and we need trained educators in all these places. Some of the countries we serve include:

  • Cambodia
  • Chile
  • Ethiopia
  • Indonesia
  • Spain
  • Solomon Islands
  • Uganda

In many of these locations, the word of God is unknown. Sometimes, this is because other religions are part of the dominant culture. In other places, the Bible has yet to be translated into a language the people can understand. The work you do in these places will be showing people God’s love for the very first time. Teaching the upcoming generation to live with God’s love is essential to develop a world that knows the Gospel firsthand and believes in its transformative power.

Serve With SAMS

Our long-term missionaries serve anywhere from a year to the rest of their career sharing the Gospel abroad. The application process takes about 18 months, and after that process we’ll help you prepare to be the hands, feet and mouth of Christ wherever you go.

If you’re ready to become a long-term teaching missionary, start the process today by calling us at +1 (724) 266-0669 or visiting our contact page and filling out our form. From there, we will invite you to apply and provide references, as well as attend a discernment conference and participate in several evaluations. We cannot wait to work with you and spread the word of God even further!
