Innsbruck, the capital of the Tirol province, is a beautiful university town, surrounded by majestic mountains and lush forests, with the beautiful Inn River running through the city. With over 135,000 inhabitants, Innsbruck has all the trappings of a big city, and yet it still maintains a small town feel. Sitting in the midst of the Alps, Innsbruck has hosted three Winter Olympics Games and still attracts sports enthusiasts year-round with its numerous hiking, mountain biking, climbing, skiing, and snowboarding routes.
Despite having a cross on every mountain peak and a church at the center of every village, most Austrians have lost true faith in Jesus Christ to religious tradition. Less than 0.5% of Austrians profess a faith in Jesus Christ & his finished work alone! “Mobilizing People for Jesus in Austria” is the mission of our Innsbruck team. This means we are working to help people not only to get to know Jesus, but also to live out his good purposes for their lives.
Our vision is to see Austrians, especially youth & young adults become strong in faith and glorifying God with their lives and restoring spiritual vitality to Austria. (see Isaiah 61:1-4). Our team is building a network of ESL (English as a Second Language) gospel initiatives. Learning English is more important than ever, and we have great opportunities to help youth and adults learn and perfect their English skills. We offer outreach English language youth camps, after-school tutoring in our youth center and are excited to start an an English club and other offerings in the near future. We are looking for English teachers to help sustain and expand this area of ministry, building gospel relationships through teaching English.
A college degree and some English teaching/tutoring experience are required. TESOL/TEFL certification and cross-cultural ministry experience are preferred. We seek those who want to grow deeper with Jesus and who have a heart for those who have never heard the Good News. Ready, willing, and able to share the Gospel and disciple others.
