Missions & Teaching?
Since 1893, SIM has focused on reaching those who have never heard the name of Jesus. What better way to do that than through sharing Jesus with children?
By serving as a teacher or administrator with SIM, you reach people at an age where many of them, statistically speaking, will come to know the Lord. Some of the students at our schools come from homes where they might never otherwise hear the gospel. Others are the children of missionaries, and your support of their ministry makes it possible for them to have a long-term impact among the unreached.
Has God given you a heart for children and a desire to use your gifts on the mission field? If so, we would be honored to help you discern if SIM would be a good fit. We have opportunities to serve in international schools, home-based learning, ESL teaching, and teacher training.
If this interests you, we encourage you to complete our online connect card by using the “Get Involved” link above.
We look forward to seeing how God uses you to impact the nations by serving His children!
Hillcrest School Jos, Nigeria I have taught at Hillcrest School for the past 9 years. I began when my youngest of four children started grade 1. I have truly enjoyed teaching at the school for many reasons. Since all four of my children have attended the school, I liked being able to have a say in their education. As a teacher at Hillcrest you are able to be on board appointed committees that make positive changes to the school.

Because many of our students come from very prominent families, many will become the political and business leaders in the future. Our school is very intentional at putting Christ first in all things. If even some of our students become passionate for Christ and take … Read More
At 8am, the early morning sounds of the city slum are just beginning to swell into the bustle of the day. Thirty students begin to trickle into the tin-walled classroom at Path of Light Primary School. Their two teachers carefully watch and welcome each one as they enter – looking for signs the children have bathed and eaten before coming.
It’s 3:25 PM. If you’re a teacher, it’s time for you to send your students home for the evening, and the work of preparing for a new day begins. As a teacher, your life is busy. You have a constant stream of ideas for reaching your students and so little time to get it all done. I know what it’s like. The Lord began calling me to serve cross-culturally as a teacher my freshman year of college. I had the privilege of spending three years at an SIM school, Bingham Academy, sharing the gospel through word and deed with my precious kindergarten students. Now, I serve in the recruiting department of SIM USA. Since beginning at SIM USA last October, the number of current and upcoming teaching needs around the SIM world has astounded me– 17 in Bolivia, 24 in Ethiopia, more than 30 in Niger, just to name a … Read More
