Paris Area Womens Immigrant Team Member

Do you feel called by God to serve Him in France?  Join the OM team in France as we serve to inspire, mobilise and equip others in seeing churches grow and be discipled, as well as getting involved hands-on in one of the least-reached countries in Europe.

By running literacy classes for immigrant women from North Africa, the Middle East, South Asia and elsewhere, we aim to show God’s love for them in a relational and practical way.

Requirements

Our team offers these women His light and hope as they adjust and integrate into French culture, providing cross-cultural socialising, language acquisition and opportunities to hear Biblical truth. We also support the ladies outside of class, helping them to arrange appointments, visit the doctor and complete paperwork. These moments spent together can lead to opportunities to share God’s love with them, once a relationship of trust has been established.

We are looking for committed team members who love God and are passionate about serving Him with their gifts and skills, and if necessary to serve in other ways too! This role is part-time, and could be either developed into a full-time role, or an additional office-based role (at Pontault-Combault) could be possible.

Ideal qualities
- Women to work with women
- Have a heart for immigrants
- Intermediate or higher level of French strongly desired, but not required.  Be willing to learn French if you don't speak it already
- Some teaching experience (in any capacity) desired, but not required
- Enjoy working on a team
