Urgent personnel needs with SIM Malawi


PLEASE NOTE: These positions are voluntary missionary placements , not job advertisements


If you would like to find out more about these Urgent Ministry Opportunities please visit the SIM Malawi Opportunities to Serve page  or speak with a SIM office in your country/region

SIM Malawi has over 30 Ministry Opportunities (MOs) available for people whom God is calling into long-term or short-term overseas missions. Due to changes in the make-up of the field, and to future developments, a number of these MOs have now become urgent and there is a vital need to find people who are called to this type of work.

In all, seven of the MOs fall into the Urgent categories:

Urgent MOs

Personnel Co-ordinator – needed by January 2017

The Personnel Co-ordinator’s primary task is to provide leadership and administrative co-ordination for all matters concerning the placement and well-being of missionary personnel in Malawi. The Personnel Co-ordinator also develops, among other things, good personnel placements, handles all personnel matters to and from the International Office and the Sending Offices, establishes and maintains good member care processes, and provides orientation for new arrivals.

Mission Administrator – needed by April 2017

The Mission Administrator fills a key role for the Malawi Field through management, support, services and member care. Primary functions are management/bookkeeping of all our SIM Malawi accounts, managing SIM Malawi properties, some vehicles and local employees.

Pioneer Church Planting

SIM Malawi would like to reach out and plant churches among the rural Yawo people, a largely unreached people group with just a few believers. This will require an acceptance of a simple lifestyle and living close to local rural populations near their villages.

Outreach Facilitator - two posts

There are two openings under this MO. Both roles involve training church leaders and members to reach out to those of another major religion with one role being aimed specifically at women missionaries in order to reach out to women of other faiths and in unreached people groups. This is a challenging ministry but gives the person/people appointed to it the chance to motivate, train and equip believers to present Christ to their countrymen in a meaningful way.

Indian Diaspora Outreach Ministry

Here is a great opportunity to reach the unreached and share the Gospel among the Indian community in Malawi! We are looking for missionaries from an Indian background to reach their fellow countrymen in Blantyre, Malawi’s business capital where, for historical reasons, the Indian population is concentrated. Fluency in Gujarati is desirable for this post.

Chinese Diaspora Outreach Ministry

We are looking for missionaries from the Chinese diaspora to come and reach their fellow countrymen in Lilongwe, the capital city of Malawi. There is no church or ministry currently ministering to this growing population, a growth triggered by increased Chinese investment in Malawi. Fluency in Mandarin is essential for this post.

Short-Term Associates (STA) Co-ordinator

The STA Co-ordinator could have a tremendous impact on the lives of young people as they explore mission opportunities at ground level!

Many ministry opportunities in Malawi have been developed in recent months, suitable for missionaries serving from a couple of weeks to up to two years. An STA Co-ordinator is desperately needed to organise and facilitate the short-termers' programme to maximise its benefits to both the Malawi field and the individual
