Professor für Missiologie und Islam (Professor of Missiology and Islamics PRF 8432)

Contribution to Strategy:

SIM in Burkina Faso is on the cutting edge of training mission leaders for the new initiatives in mission movement in Francophone Africa. Leaders from 11 different countries and from many denominations have come to the IMS for intensive training in missions, anthropology, leadership, and Isl*. The IMS is seeking accreditation to offer courses at both BA and MA levels by September 2011.

Ministry: TB- Bible School Teaching

Responsibilities: Teachers at the IMS have a busy schedule of teaching, discipleship, and interacting with students. Teachers must be capable of helping students with research and writing dissertations and of developing field-based components to their courses with real life consequences. We are specifically looking for help in developing a program of in-depth study of Isl* and ministry among M*s. This person would help develop a program that will include courses on Is*c thought and practice in West and Central Africa, the life of M*ham*d, the Qu*n, and evangelism and discipleship in Isl*c contexts. This person must be available to teach other courses related to missions and intercultural studies and to contribute in various ways to the overall function of the IMS.

Other Ministry Possibilities: Opportunities to teach Bible, theology, and ministry courses for our sister institution, Institut Biblique Evangelique de Ouagadougou, preaching in churches around Ouagadougou, and teaching (ESL) abound.


Advanced degree required.

Required training: Advanced training in missiology and isl*s (a degree equivalent to an MDiv, ThM, DMIN, DMISS, or PhD) and significant experience in Africa (5 to 7 years minimum) is required.

Recommended Experience: Pastoral training and experience would be helpful.

Personality Issues/ Cultural Considerations:: Teaching in a multicultural setting would require someone sensitive to cultural realities in West Africa with an understanding of shame and guilt cultures, a team player who is very flexibile, has strong interpersonal skills and a pastor's heart. We are looking for someone with a special blend that includes being informed, passionate, sensitive, and experienced.
