Pre-School/Kindergarten Teacher and Family Aide

Mexico City is the largest city in Latin America, with approximately 21.2 million people in the entire metropolitan area. Accordingly, Mexico City is an important and strategic location for ministry outreach and church planting. It is also a city that demonstrates a clear mosaic of prosperous and poorer neighborhoods. Community development projects are critical in each of these pockets as they present very different challenges and opportunities.

The families working with this ministry are deeply involved within their communities to build relationship, share Sabbath, and support the movement of church planting throughout the South of this city. These leaders are actively mentoring young adult apprentices who come though GoCorps for two years of service and training.

The rhythm is busy, vibrant, and full for the staff families that are running the program and the Lord has brought vision to the team to invite a family aide, a Goer, who would be available to support the young families in their initiatives on ground and also pour into the projects at play in the local community. The ministry staff have two families (one American, one Mexican) that have a total of five kids between 2-6 years of age. Part of this vision is that this Goer has a background in Early Childhood Education and can help partner with the missionary mothers in providing education at home.

Goers will have the opportunity to develop their own communities as they live with a Mexican host family and work under the leadership of a local church. Trainings outside of ministry will occur every week where our Goers take Spanish classes, participate in workshops with their cohort, and learn practical ministry tools to better equip them for their ministry settings
