Do you thrive on challenge? Do you have a vision for providing health management in the most needy and hard-to-reach communities? Do you have a heart to share Jesus' love with those who have never heard? Do you have leadership and administrative gifts? Are you flexible and willing to live where the peace is fragile? If this is you, then pray about joining our Health Project Team as Assistant Health Program Manager and know the joy of serving in the place Jesus has prepared for you.
Are you convinced that no one should live and die without hearing the gospel?
SIM is asking God to provide Bible teachers to live in South Sudan and work closely with local churches, implementing Theological Education by Extension. You will train teachers, teach a variety of Bible courses, and equip the church to extend the gospel to the least reached. Positions may possibly be available in a formal setting of a Bible college and informal setting of the local church.
The South Sudan team needs a Personnel Coordinator from mid-2015. The current instabilities are opening up many opportunities with unreached people groups, and we want to see our team grow. Would you come to mobilise and support our team to thrive in the hard places where Gospel seeds are planted? Please pray about whether this could be you!

Do you have training in the health field? A physiotherapist or nurse would be ideal in this service opportunity. Community health work is critical to implementing good health strategies in homes. Because SIM works through relationships, having community health workers go to homes reinforces what was taught in clinic visits. This is an essential part of community evangelism, where the spiritual part of medicine can be seen - praying and interceding with families in their homes.
Are you a native English speaker? This already gives you amazing opportunities for getting the gospel story to people who have never heard it before!
If you are a certified health worker, your skills are needed to work in South Sudan where maternal mortality is 2037/100,000 - highest in the world. You will be training local health workers. The health infrastructure of South Sudan has been shattered by years of war and the clinic at Doro where you will be based is a key part of our overall project of "Rebuilding South Sudan: Church and Nation" which includes community health training, community evangelism, basic education, water and sanitation, church leadership training, and a secondary school.
Would you provide confidential, trained, pastoral care for our team? In a country where evacuations are common and crises normal, having a capacity for skilled debriefs and effective follow-up is very important. You would also be a safe place to discuss the everyday stresses of life and deal with problems early on and in a healthy way. You would support our goal of having effective, thriving missionaries witnessing of Christ's love in South Sudan!
Your professional medical skills are needed in South Sudan. The health needs of Sudan's people are tremendous, and resources are minimal. Maternal mortality is the highest in the world; the heavy burden of infant and pediatric disease is barely touched.
Has God gifted you with leadership and management skills? Are you a people person? He may be leading you to our field!
The Sudan field has many operations running concurrently. There is an important need to normalize all of our operations with respect to the community and government entities. The Base Administrator position is key in organizing the many projects that operate in a given location. It is also an opportunity to give a clear face to SIM in the field.
