  • Managua, Nicaragua
    Contact Person: Phillip and Beauty Ndoro, phillip.ndoro@servantpartners.org, beauty.ndoro@servantpartners.org ESL Tutors: Create a new world of opportunity for Nicaraguans by teaching English. In Nicaragua, a country with an unemployment rate greater than 50%, speaking English almost guarantees full-time employment. We are seeking staff to tutor small groups of youth and adults. Children’s Ministry Facilitator: We are looking for a person to work with our children’s ministry.

  • Manila, The Philippines
    No current openings.
  • Marseille, France
    Contact Person: Zach Powell, zach.powell@servantpartners.org Sports Activist: Holistic adult aerobics and health club groups among Muslim women. Also many opportunities to spend time with refugees and local immigrant children through sports activities. We have developed models of weaving in Kingdom values and ethics, not to mention deeper community participation. Immigrant and refugee communities tend to neglect the body, and it’s an opportunity. Candidates would also have to be ready for taking some risks and must speak (or learn to speak) French. Arts and Trauma Counseling: As with other SP sites, there is huge need to accompany recent refugees and immigrants into deeper healing through “therapeutic arts” and inner healing times. There is great openness to these methods, and among Muslims there is more freedom in France than in some other locations. This candidate would also have to be ready for taking some risks and must speak (learn to speak) French - though some refugees can communicate in Arabic and/or English as French is being learned. Teacher (ESL, tutoring, French, life skills, etc): Teaching is the easiest way to meet and get to know our immigrant neighbors in Marseille. Whether through teaching ESL to children or adults, participating in a tutoring program, or by teaching other kinds of desired skills (vocational training, sports, business, etc) – this is a great onramp into people's lives. These teachings would need to be conducted with Kingdom principles and with a focus on ethics, transformation and the option to know Jesus. If you enjoy teaching, want to learn French, and want to connect with urban poor Muslims in France – this is a good option. Church Planter and Teacher: We are partnering with a few local churches that are growing and having an impact in Marseille, however few of them have managed to impact the urban poor and immigrant populations. We have considerable freedom to start small groups in a more indigenous and culturally appropriate manner, with the option of integrating them into larger worship meetings if it seems that it will not hurt the movement. Trying to keep a balance between edgy Bible Studies and the exploration of scripture in culturally relevant ways and an attempt to connect people to a larger part of the body. This is a long-term position, needing the candidate to first work their way to a solid French language level and integrate into the Muslim immigrant community of Marseille. It would also require lots of creativity, willingness to risk, and persistence as few have managed this in the past. Kingdom Business / Urban Farming / Alternative Commerce: At least a few of us on the Marseille team are considering starting some kind of creative business that would also benefit our urban poor neighbors. There is a rich tradition of starting Kingdom businesses, but there are few who also live in the communities where these businesses are started. The business context can be a great place to disciple. Because “traditional work” is not always available to illegal immigrants or legal refugees, we are looking into alternative commerce methods like online-barter platforms to value and reward work, without violating local laws. This candidate would also have to be ready for taking some risks, working in a difficult business environment (Europe), and must speak (or learn to speak) French.
