Every EMM worker's primary focus is to make disciples of Jesus. Facilitate conversational English groups or classes in one of several possible settings. Interact with participants informally as time allows, participate in a Czech church, and build relationships.

Regional vision
Workers who long to see the kingdom of God flourish in this region will come to East/Central Europe and invest in relationships, realizing they may not see fruit for some time. As people in the region connect with Jesus and churches begin to grow, Christians will have a life-giving impact on this area.

Responsibilities

  • Serve in one of many possible settings like teach English or facilitate conversational English groups.
  • Interact with students outside of class as time allows.
  • Participate in a Czech church.
  • Build relationships.

Environment

The Czech Republic is a relatively stable country with a wide variety of products and modern conveniences comparable to those of many Western countries. There is a strong culture of independence, and education is highly valued. Czech people can be very skeptical of outsiders and reluctant to establish new relationships, but once friendships have been made, Czechs are very loyal. The religious environment is strongly atheist — a residual effect of the former Communist system — with a minority of Catholics and even fewer evangelicals.

Supervisors and colleagues
The English tutor would work with the EMM team supervised by Stacy Nofziger. The person would also work among coworkers and/or supervisors in any other work or volunteer efforts.

Skills and experience
A B.A. in English is strongly recommended for any formal teaching in a school, but the only thing required for conversational English tutoring is a love of Jesus and people. Anyone with a willing heart will find a place in the Czech Republic!
