In teaching cosmetology to deaf students you will join a team that is empowering and equipping a marginalized people group as they positively impact their lives and those in their families. It will be your job to design and implement lesson plans that will help your students to effectively learn the skills needed to be an excellent hairdresser, make-up artist, and/ or manicurist.
You will be involved in on-the-job oversight in the salon as well as in building relationships with those you teach.
Through these relationships you will have the opportunity share about the difference Jesus Christ has made in your life.
We are looking for people with the following qualities: outgoing, organized, self-motivated, enthusiastic, and makes new friends easily.
Training in cosmetology is required.
Training in sign language and giftings in Evangelism, Mercy, and/or Helps would also be helpful (though these are not strictly necessary).

Después de años de vivir entre un grupo apartado de personas no alcanzadas, los obreros de OM ven a Dios atraer a los primeros creyentes locales a sí mismos.
After years of living among a remote unreached people group, OMers see God draw the first local believers to Himself.
“If I am completely honest, I think I spent our first two years in Central Asia longing to go home to our home country (or even to the USA where we had lived for a short while),” admits Beth. “I would pray: Your will God but deep down I was hoping that His will was that we wouldn’t be here long.”
