The Diocese of Katanga in DR Congo is looking for a Women’s Development Worker.
The population of DR Congo has suffered from decades of conflict, and the poor and powerless suffer disproportionately. You will be able to combine sharing the gospel with empowering women economically.
The work would be mostly in the large city of Lubumbashi but potentially in other towns and villages of the diocese as well.
You will be skilled at getting alongside people and listening, training and enabling, and project management, all underpinned with a heart for the gospel.
While the initial focus may be on women, the diocese wishes to reach out more broadly to the unemployed and has an existing ministry to street children.
CMS places individuals, couples and families in over 45 countries around the world as we seek to share the love of Jesus and see our world transformed. Our placements are self-funding with extensive support in fundraising given to those who serve long-term (4+ years). All placements are subject to DBS clearance.
Terms and conditions depend upon the location of each opening and the duration of the placement offered. Short-term opportunities (4 months to 2 years) are self-funded, with CMS offering residential, cross-cultural training. Long-term mission partners serve for 4-6 years minimum. We work on a fully resourced basis to ensure your funding, learning and support are in place together, through connecting to local churches and your wider networks. Individualised learning plans are developed for preparation and during service for those on long-term service.Get in touch
