Middle East

Serving In Mission merged with MECO (Middle East Christian Outreach) UK & Ireland in September, 2016 to create an organisation which can strengthen gospel outreach in the Middle East.

MECO has worked in the region for 156 years, building great partnerships with individuals, with churches and with agencies. For 125 years, Serving In Mission has existed to take the gospel to places where Jesus is least known.

SIM now supports workers in Egypt, Lebanon, Iraqi Kurdistan, Jordan and Cyprus and is actively recruiting more gospel-hearted people for this region,


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 are always needed - and especially teachers of the Bible (RE), English, computing, sports and social studies.

Teachers of English as a second language (TESOL) are always in demand, to educate both young people and adults.
