(Long-term Missionary) Teacher of Lay Leaders in Guatemala

St. Augustine, FL


Occupations

Education: Continuing-Adult, General-Other: Training-Instruction

Job Description

  • Proficiency in Spanish.
  • Prior completion of a formal theological education that is both comprehensive and recognized by one of the Orthodox jurisdictions (for example, formal seminary graduates as well as graduates of programs such as the St. Stephen’s program).
  • Preference given to people who have hands-on teaching experience in a church context (e.g. camp directors, pastoral assistants, youth directors, etc.) or who have some other type of teaching background.
  • The missionary would lead/teach frequent retreats in important, centralized parishes across the mission field; these retreats should be part of an over-arching plan for teaching core tenants of the Orthodox faith to lay leaders, including catechists, youth groups, and other lay leaders.
  • The missionary will focus not only on teaching but also on mentoring and equipping new teachers from among the lay leaders who would then go out to new regions of Guatemala to extend the educational program to areas that the missionary cannot visit.
  • Requires travel independently across Guatemala and Mexico by using public vans, buses, and other vehicles.
  • The missionary must be flexible/adaptable to many environments and living situations, and also must be adept at forming friendships with local Orthodox families because he/she will sleep in local people’s houses and eat with them when leading retreats.
  • Musical talents would be a great advantage in adapting to local music customs which include Bible songs.
