Serve Overseas as a Teacher


As a qualified teacher, you can play an essential role as part of a team seeking to share the love of Jesus Christ in remote areas. MAF teachers provide quality instruction for the children of MAF missionaries, enabling families to serve in strategic locations.

MAF places teachers in a number of school settings, ranging from small one-room, multi-grade classrooms to larger international schools. Teacher needs vary from year to year. If you have a U.S. or ACSI (Association of Christian Schools, Int’l) teacher certification and a minimum of one year teaching full-time, you may initially qualify for a short-term role. The minimum commitment is one school year, and after that, teachers may move into a long-term position with MAF.
