Biblical Training Specialist – Thailand
LENGTH OF SERVICE
The Serge Thailand team is seeking a Biblical Training Specialist to offer specialized biblical/theological training with a distinctively reformed theology and worldview.
In working with and listening to Thai ministry leaders, the team has identified the need to offer specialized biblical/theological training. They do not desire to build a seminary but rather, are looking to offer training in specifically chosen topics that will augment what leaders have already received and supplement areas that are lacking.
This training will be a combination of in-person classes/seminars and online courses. However, even with online offerings, the team is committed to maintaining a personal touch to the educational experience.
- Work with the Serge Thailand team to listen to Thai ministry leaders and determine what they believe are important training needs
- Work with the Serge Thailand team to determine topics that are needed
- Work together with Serge’s Renewal team and the Serge Thailand team to develop courses/trainings that are:
- Biblical at their core
- Reflective of a reformed perspective and worldview, while maintaining a gracious approach towards those who may not share the same worldview
- Aligned with the missions, visions, and values of both Serge and Serge Thailand
- Tailored to resonate with Thai people and their culture as the primary audience
- Created to be delivered in the Thai language
- Teach the lessons the team creates at in-person events
- Assist in creating text, audio, and video versions of courses (Tech skills not necessary, but helpful!)
- Disciple and encourage students enrolled in the courses
These training programs may encompass a range of topics, including but not limited to:
- What is the gospel?
- How does this gospel affect my life and ministry?
- What is the church?
- How do I plant a church in the context of a Thai village…with no money?
- Serge’s “Sonship” discipleship course
- And other topics as recommended by Thai ministry partners
Requirements and Critical Qualities:
- This role requires a seminary-level education
- It is also highly personal, so a love of teaching, discipling, and encouraging Thai ministry leaders is a must
- While not necessary, experience in congregational or other people-focused teaching ministry is a major plus
- This position requires learning the Thai language after arriving on the field
