After living in Albania for several years, Andrew and Alecia moved to Greece to make disciples among Albanians who have immigrated there. They recently partnered with local believers to plant an Albanian-speaking fellowship at the foot of Mars Hill in Athens, just steps from where Paul preached the gospel 2,000 years ago.

Do you have a heart for students and relational evangelism? We are looking for teachers to join this team beginning in September 2012 or January 2013. ESL training is not required, but some teaching experience is helpful. Using a standard curriculum, you will teach a few classes a week freeing up the team to focus on building relationships outside of class. The school’s main focus is on teens, and they find that most of them start coming to Friday night youth group activities as well. Most life-changing ministry here takes place sipping cappuccinos in smoky coffee bars. If you have been looking for an opportunity to make a significant impact and can commit six months to one year, we would love to explore this opportunity together with you!
