Church Planter / Plantador de Iglesias

Be part of a outreach team establishing a new church as part of the Redil group of churches in an urban neighbourhood of Medellin, Colombia´s 2nd city. The work would involve street evangelism, home visits, prayer ministry, pastoral support, discipleship groups and more. The work may also involve working with a sister church in a more deprived area of the city about 20 minutes in bus from the neighbourhood doing social action and working with the young people, single mums and children.

Primary / English Teacher / Profesor de Primario o ingles

The school is based in the mountainside on the edge of Bogota in a poor neighbourhood where unemployment and access to services is low. The quality of education in the area is poor so the school works to provide a good holistic education for the children of the community. The school is part of a church outreach programme and also works alongside a community centre running a Compassion programme for local children. Many of the children attend the school and the community centre. You would be involved in the teaching programme for primary school children. If you speak English they would incorporate language learning into your timetable. The school is a Christian school so this would play a significant part of your daily timetable too.

Community Project Worker / Voluntario de Comedor

A community project primarily for children and young people although also working with the women and local families in a deprived neighbourhood on the outskirts of the Colombian capital. The project works to serve the poorest families in the local area providing a holistic programme which includes lunch and homework support, social activities, games, sports, english classes and more. They also have a youth club and teach Christian Education and a small church on Sundays. You would be involved in the daily running of the project and it´s activities. The leaders love new ideas so if you came with skills you wanted to share with the children and young people such as music classes they would happily incorporate them into the programme.

Worker in Deaf School / Trabajador en Colegio para sordos

This school is specifically designed for deaf children and the education is geared towards helping them learn and engage with wider society. The school is part of a wider Christian project to serve deaf people and their families. This project also includes a Bible translation project into Colombian sign language and a social work project to support the families of the students, teach them sign language and help them understand how to bring up a deaf child healthily. There are many opportunities to engage with this project, from teaching in the school (including traditional school subjects and also Christian Education) to supporting the work with the families. There is also a deaf church that meets in the school on Sundays.
