Evangelist/Outreach Worker for Immigrant Community in Lisbon
- Long term
- 5 years or more
ECM is looking for team members to work with two immigrant groups in Lisbon, doing personal evangelism and discipleship, social action, and leadership development.
Two small immigrant groups have developed in Lisbon, one in the Nepali language, meeting in the city centre, the other in the Punjabi language, meeting in the northern suburbs of the city. Together they are seeking to form a South Asian outreach community. The potential for ministry among these small but growing groups includes personal evangelism and discipleship, development of social action initiatives, and long term leadership development. A couple who are involved in a distinct church planting project in another inner city neighbourhood would provide some support for this initiative.
ECM is looking for mission workers with an outgoing personality, who are flexible and ready to take initiative.
Languages required: English and Portuguese (or a willingness to learn).
This role would ideally suit someone who already has experience of mission work in South Asia or of outreach work to immigrant communities in their own country. A basic knowledge of Nepali, Urdu/Punjabi or other South Asian languages would also be desirable.
