A mentor is needed to take pastoral responsibility for WEC Chad’s short-term workers, who are most likely to be single and aged 18-30 years. They are generally in Chad for 6+ months, but arrive at different times in the year. The total at any time may vary from one to seven. You would work with them both as individuals and as a group, helping them adapt to Chadian life and to grow in Christ. You would also give moral support as the young people learn local language. The shorttermers are most likely to be teaching English or IT. Both mentor and shorttermers would be part of the existing team seeking to reach Muslims in Eastern Chad. The mentor would be accountable to and work with the WEC Chad leadership.
Qualifications: Previous experience of working cross-culturally is essential, preferably in the Muslim world. A couple would be ideal, but a single person might fulfill this role. A mature believer, confident and secure in their faith. Fluent in English. Some ability in French or Arabic would be very useful.
Minimum term: 2 years
