Vocational or Professional Trainers

Senegal is 95% Muslim and at most .1% Evangelical Christian. The Wolof are the dominant people group, but there are only about 100 known believers among them. Use your profession (medical, educational, social etc.) or vocation (mechanics, electrical, computer, etc.) or skill (art, music, English, etc.) to train Senegalese in your skill(s) so that some will come to Faith, be established independently in a profession, vocation or business, and be sustaining church members building the body of Christ.

Self-starter yet willing to work 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 work among a people who have historically been resistant to the gospel. Some skill, profession, vocation, or art that you want to train others in.
Learn Wolof and some French. Learn culture. Discover what is being done in Senegal in your skill/area of expertise. In some domains such as medical get licensed. Build relationships and work with (or under) others who share your skill so that you can learn how best to establish yourself to train others in our context. (We anticipate this process will take at least the first term… this is not a quick fix, in and out role.) Set yourself up in your own business or practice or situation where you can train Senegalese. Life on life share Christ with your apprentices/students. Eventually help some to get established in their own business or profession and give back to society and the church. Participate in team life especially prayer, but also help with our facilitating functions in areas of expertise or need.

Could live in Dakar, Thies or Ngaparou. 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.
