Bible Study Trainer and Discipler

Senegal is 95% Muslim and at most .1% Evangelical Christian. While the Wolof are the dominant people group and there are only about 100 known believers among them, WorldVenture is related to some 27 churches primarily among the Serere people. Help us build these churches by awakening believers to the fact they can understand the Bible by learning how to study the Bible, interpret and apply and train others to do the same. Come join us. Help us train, disciple and mentor believers for the church in Senegal.

REQUIREMENTS:
Experience in disciple making. Biblical training or extensive biblical knowledge. Some knowledge in how to teach oral learners. Self-starter yet willing to work as a team and on a team. Spiritually mature. Able to graciously teach and be taught. Good interpersonal skills. Passionate about God’s Word. Daily devotional life and consistent Christian life. Able and willing to learn languages. Willing to travel (day trips) and work in village settings.
RESPONSIBILITIES:
Learn Serere and/or Wolof and some French. Use your love for the Bible, your personal Bible study methods and your love for discipleship to train Senegalese how to study the Bible, interpret and apply. Encourage those believers to pass on what they learned from you and disciple other believers. We want to see believers studying the Bible for themselves and discipling their children and/or other young people in their "family". Participate in team life especially prayer, but also help with our facilitating functions in areas of expertise or need.
LIVING ENVIRONMENT:
Could live in Dakar, Thies or Ngaparou. After first term, could remain in one of these towns or move to a more remote location. Apartment or houses for rent. Dakar – big crowded city, lots of traffic, lots of amenities and good Christian school for children using American curriculum. Thies or Ngaparou – smaller towns with less traffic and fewer amenities. British System, French or bilingual schools available for children. Some towns home schooling would be necessary. July through October hot and humid. Coastal areas more moderate December through May.
WORKING ENVIRONMENT:
Join a healthy, well-functioning team of missionaries who are growing in their faith and enjoy being together and praying together. God is definitely at work in Senegal in the lives of Senegalese and missionaries. At least two other church groups have university student hostels, but they don’t begin to cover the Christian students coming. Our related churches are begging us to help provide for additional Christian students to ground them in their faith and help keep them in the church. Our team’s top priorities include: Foster sustainable, healthy, reproducing churches among Wolof, develop professional and vocational people, and Make Disciples of Jesus Christ. We regularly pray for the growth of the church. You could be an answer to our prayers. Come join us.
