Vehicle Mechanic and Driver

Life in Africa involves traveling long distances on poor roads.  Without our vehicles we would be very limited in our effectiveness.

Would you be willing to join our team in Zambia to help maintain and repair our fleet of vehicles? We also need someone to help us with driving within Kabwe, and also to Lusaka. Creativeness,innovativeness and loads of patience are key to excelling in this responsibility.


You will be responsible for the regular maintenance and repairs of the organization's vehicles, as well as any associated paper work (such as insurance and roadworthy certificates).

Daily trips into town for purchases, banking and also to and from different ministries. Trips to Lusaka for business purposes or to pick people up from the airport on a regular basis.

If you have experience as a mechanic, practical and organizational abilities, and great people skills, we would love for you to be part of our team!

The applicant will need to participate in the 2-month OM Discipleship Program in Kabwe, Zambia, before beginning with this ministry.

Turning over the table

“I knew before I came to Africa that I would face the issue of poverty cycles, but I didn’t know there would be poverty cycles in ministries as well. I was so emotional about my friend’s situation that I wanted to do something. In Chinese, we call this feeling ‘turning over the table.' Chinese are usually reserved people so turning over the table means that someone could not hold back the emotion any more,” explains Ivy. “They have to do something to express what they are feeling.”
