In Country Coordinator - Greece
- Long term
- 5 years or more
ECM International wants to open a new field in Greece. It is hoped that short-midterm workers (2-3 years) and short term teams (10 days - 1 month) will be raised up and the In Country Coordinator will be responsible for these.
Recent developments in Greece have led to a historical openness to the gospel. ECMI wishes to support and work alongside Greek evangelical churches. This work would include evangelism and church planting with the Greek population; serving the humanitarian needs of the country; and working with the overwhelming numbers of refugees. Before teams can come and assist, we need a coordinator to establish themselves in Greece and then facilitate the ministries of these teams.
For the first 6 months, you would need to do intensive cultural and language studies. You would then help, oversee and support ECMI teams in Greece whilst also relating to and liaising with the Greek evangelical churches.
You will be a Christian who has good biblical and theological understanding, as well as a pastoral heart. You must have cross-cultural experience and the ability to cope with stress. You will be a team player, able to delegate and with excellent interpersonal skills. A need for good organisational skills is essential, as is the ability to respect authority and the leaders of the Greek church partners. Whilst having a good level of English, you must be willing to learn Greek to conversational level and be able to raise your own financial support.
