aXcess: Ministry Among the Least-Reached in Guinea 

Are you passionate about using your skills to offer hope to the hopeless and reach those resistant to the Truth? Join us in building relationships with those of the majority religion to offer hope through Scripture reading, discipleship, modeling Kingdom life, inviting them into the Kingdom, and planting the church among the least-reached. Come work on a tight-knit team to foster community among young adults through center ministries like teaching English, mentoring, and training future leaders. The center provides a safe place for young adults to find community, be vulnerable about life concerns, and explore the truth of Scripture.

Preferred Qualifications: 

Biblical Characteristics Desired: 

Timeline for Deployment: 

Summer/fall 2025. All appointees are required to attend a cross-cultural and language acquisition program and pre-field course/experience prior to deploying. 

General Information: 

The capital is a sprawling, developing third-world city offering limited services, but it has extensive opportunities for growth. You would live in a semi-urban area with some high-rises surrounded by homes with small courtyards. Homes are nice, but many do not have a continual supply of water and electricity. This can be remedied with a water tower and solar electric back-up system or generator. Primary roads are in fair condition but are often congested. Local shopping options are limited, but essentials are available in local markets while imported goods are available at certain stores around town, including a few newer international grocery stores.

Language Expectations: 

Language is an essential part of ministry. Those who do not know the language will attend a language study program. The goal will be to speak, read, and write the language at a functional level in order to mentor, teach, and train others. 

Individuals will receive up to one year of intensive French language study before arrival to Guinea. Time will be allotted for continued French study during the first year of living on site. It is recommended, though not required, that you study a local language upon arrival. 

Health Considerations: 

Basic health services and medications are available, but overall, the country lacks comprehensive health care. Advanced diagnosis and treatment are usually obtained outside the country. Malaria is a fact of life in this part of the world, so use of prophylaxis is strongly recommended. Check the CDC website for further information. 

Expectations for Spouse: 

Spousal roles vary based on the spouse’s gifts, training, and abilities as well as the needs of the team. It is expected that both spouses will be meaningfully involved in meeting ministry objectives depending on the nature of family roles, children, etc. 

We require both spouses to fulfill language requirements. Our ministry at the center includes both young men and women, so both spouses have to serve. While raising a family comes with certain challenges, we are a flexible team with creative ministry options at our center. 

Children’s Educational Plan and Options: 

An academy located in the region runs a quality school co-op from K-8 grade. They provide a teacher and operate at our mission headquarters in Conakry. There is also a French school with a bilingual program option that provides education and classes for both elementary and secondary levels. For high schoolers, there is a boarding school option available in Senegal (at the academy campus which runs the co-op mentioned above). Lastly, there is an American international school that offers K-12 grades. 

Compensation Package

The successful applicant(s) will receive a full compensation package with the expectation that, once appointed, efforts will be made to raise a portion of support costs through the applicant’s network of friends, family, local church, or other resources. Information on support costs will be made available upon application. Training and/or coaching in fundraising is available.

Whole-Life Health

As part of an evangelical denomination, we are committed to biblical holism, which is modeled and reflected through our work. Due to this commitment, part of the required qualifications includes optimal emotional, spiritual, and physical health. These will be assessed during the application process.

Importance Clarification

Applicant(s) should be aware that serving in the international world often requires a higher degree of grace and flexibility. For example, overseas teams can be suddenly and unexpectedly impacted by illness, government decisions, financial realities, team changes, or other factors beyond the team’s control. The challenge for applicants is that these factors can sometimes necessitate the sudden redefining of a position, which may take place before, during, or after the application/interview process has begun or is completed.
