Service Opportunities

The EMC Board of Missions needs missionaries to work in Bolivia

Haciende Verde Pastor:
The church in the new community of Hacienda Verde, Bolivia is a small but vibrant congregation with approximately 70 to 80 people attending. The expectation is that this number will grow significantly in the near future. These families are from a variety of Mennonite backgrounds in Bolivia and Paraguay.

The applicant will be fluent in speaking and writing Low German. Spanish would be an asset. They would be living in Hacienda Verde. They need to have good Bible knowledge and some pastoral experience. A family with young/er children would be a good fit. They must come with good references from their congregation as well as the community outside of the church. This will be a long-term position.

These people to whom you will be ministering first need to hear that there is forgiveness from sin through Jesus Christ and that there is a more abundant life for them and for their children. We preach the sure hope that comes through Christ.

It would be ideal to have this position filled by the end of 2016. This would provide time for training and introduction to the community.

For more information, please contact:
Bill Kehler, Bolivia Field Director
Abe Giesbrecht, Missions Facilitator (Ph. 204-253-7929)

Villa Nueva (Paillon) school teacher: Teaching positions are filled for 2016 but consider this opportunity for 2017.
