English Teacher

Many ministries in OM are looking for qualified ESL/TESOL English teachers to work toward the purpose of seeing vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached. Some of these teaching opportunities involve building relationships with a particular people group, while others involve equipping missions workers for future ministry. If you are a self-motivated teacher who enjoys a new challenge and wants to work toward the purpose of reaching those who have never heard the gospel before, consider using your skills with OM. Participation in local ministry and team life may also be aspects of your role.


1. You are a trained teacher, and certainly will have a gift in teaching young people, a certificate or diploma like TESOL, ESL, EFL or TEFL will be an advantage.
2. You enjoy working with children, youth and families in the communities where we serve.
3. You have some experience in community and social work in your church and living area.
