Children’s Program Coordinator



Are you an experienced teacher who loves children and loves seeing them learn and grow? Are you interested in cross-cultural ministry? The Pacific Orientation Course (POC), in Papua New Guinea, may be the place for you! This course is designed to equip participants with the tools for ongoing learning in cross-cultural ministry. It provides foundational instruction for the acquisition of Melanesian Pidgin language skills as well as opportunities to grow spiritually and personally. Critical to the success of a training/orientation program is the provision of cultural orientation and education opportunities for the children of the POC participants. How about joining the POC staff and working alongside dedicated expatriate and PNG staff to equip enthusiastic new workers and their children for their cross-cultural ministry. Interested in learning more? Contact your local Wycliffe office for details.
