Come and join a new work that is seeking to bring lost people out from under the yoke of physical and spiritual poverty. The successful applicant(s) will be part of a team living in the Savanah region of Guinea with a goal of restoring local people to a right relationship with God and His creation using agriculture. They will share the message of hope by working in local villages through developing an experimental farm. They will also help to find adaptable solutions to problems that local farmers face.

General Information:

The Upper Guinea region lies in the northeastern part of Guinea, providing a warm dry season (March–May) with temperatures reaching 100°F while cooling off at night, a rainy season (June–October), and a cool, windy period early in the year. Towns in the Upper Guinea region are mildly developed with part-time electricity and cell phone coverage. Dirt roads can be quite rutted and secondary routes are difficult to traverse.

Language Expectations:

Language is an essential part of ministry. Those who do not know the language will attend a language study program. The goal will be to speak, read, and write the language at a functional level in order to mentor, teach, and train others.

CAMA workers will have one year of French language study followed by local language and culture acquisition.

Health Considerations:

Basic health services and medications are available, but Guinea lacks quality, comprehensive health care. Advanced diagnosis and treatment need to be obtained outside the country. Medical conditions requiring constant monitoring and control are difficult to maintain here. Use of malaria prophylaxis is strongly recommended.

Expectations for Spouse:

Spousal roles vary based on the spouse’s gifts, training, and abilities as well as the needs of the team. It is expected that both spouses will be meaningfully involved in meeting ministry objectives depending on the nature of family roles, children, etc.

Children’s Educational Plan and Options:

Children’s formal educational opportunities are limited. There are no local French or English language schools that provide an acceptable level of education for workers’ children. A boarding option is available in a neighboring country for older children. Homeschooling is recommended for younger children.

Compensation Package

The successful applicant(s) will receive a full compensation package with the expectation that, once appointed, efforts will be made to raise a portion of support costs through the applicant’s network of friends, family, local church, or other resources. Information on support costs will be made available upon application. Training and/or coaching in fundraising is available.

Important Clarification

Applicant(s) should be aware that serving in the international world often requires a higher degree of grace and flexibility. For example, overseas teams can be suddenly and unexpectedly impacted by illness, government decisions, financial realities, team changes, or other factors beyond the team’s control. The challenge for applicants is that these factors can sometimes necessitate the sudden redefining of a position, which may take place before, during, or after the application/interview process has begun or is completed.

Whole-Life Health

CAMA Services is the relief and development specialized structure of Alliance Missions. As part of an evangelical denomination, we are committed to biblical holism, which is modeled and reflected through our work. Due to this commitment, part of the required qualifications includes optimal emotional, spiritual, and physical health. These will be assessed during the application process.
