Serving in the Middle East

MECO is involved with Middle East Christians in God's work of church planting and nurturing. In partnership with Middle Eastern Christians, our goal is the growth and strengthening of churches so they will reach more people.

Churches are asking us to help them find:

  • Administrators, computing specialists and managers for ministries and initiatives.
  • Bible and theological lecturers with at least an MA or PhD in theology, who are willing to learn and teach in Arabic.
  • Workers amongst young people, children, families and pastoral visiting.
  • Drug advisors, counsellors and trainers.

Schools and Learning Centres are always looking for teachers of core subjects, especially those whose first language is English. Willingness to be involved in speaking at chapel services and assemblies is appreciated.

Primary and secondary teachers for national Christian schools and schools for expatriate children. Teachers of Bible (RE), English, computing, sports and social studies are especially needed.

Teachers of English as a second language (TESOL) for students and adults.

Teacher trainers who combine technical excellence and spiritual maturity.

Project workers to help with grant-writing and communication with donors are required for most parts of the region, including:

Medical Consultants, doctors, nurses, midwives, other skilled healthcare professionals

Special needs, therapists and social workers to work with street children, orphans and those who are blind, deaf and who live with multiple handicaps.

Media and Literature skills are increasingly required. If you have skills in media, web design and maintenance, radio and satellite and have the patience to help and train others.

IT support staff are key players amongst agencies and churches.

Member Care is of growing importance to us in each of the countries where we serve. We’re looking for established people - especially with some experience of the region and preferably with some facility in language - who can help with orientation, mentoring, and hospitality.
