Papua is the easternmost province in the vast archipelago of 15,000 islands that make up Indonesia. As the second largest island on the planet, Papua boasts the largest gold mine and the second largest copper mine in the world and spectacular wildlife and natural beauty. But it is not only natural resources that make Papua rich, it is the welcoming and generous people, rich cultural heritage, and more than 250 unique languages make it truly a paradise.
Despite its natural wealth, Papua has traditionally lacked other critical resources. Basic infrastructure, modern health care, and education are woefully absent. Many Papuans feel marginalized. There are many needs in Papua. The Papua Hope Language Institute works in the need of education. We are striving to develop students academically, spiritually, and culturally so that students can go and study in a post-secondary setting. Our vision is that students will return to Papua to become the next generation of leaders. We hope that Papua will one day have an incredible educational institution that will match the incredible natural and human resources that has made Papua the incredible land it has been for generations.
The Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) will mentor and work alongside our Residence Assistants (RAs). The RLC will help coordinate programming, directly disciple students, encourage and support RAs, and carry out related ministry opportunities for students and the residence life team. Character development and spiritual formation are a central component of our curriculum. Students attend Bible class, small groups, and other discipleship programming in the classroom and through the residence life program.
