Language Expectations:

Language is an essential part of ministry. CAMA international workers will receive one year of French language study in Albertville, France, possibly followed by the study of the local language, depending on length of service.

Health Considerations:

Some healthcare options are available. Surgeries need to be done outside of the country.

Expectations for Spouse:

Spousal roles vary based on the spouse’s gifts, abilities, and training, as well as the needs of the team. The spouse’s family commitments also play a role in determining the expectations for the spouse.

Children’s Educational Plan and Options:

Homeschooling is a viable option, as well as Dakar Academy (K–12), which offers boarding options for the sixth grade level and above.

Compensation Package:

This is a partially funded position with the expectation that the appointee(s) will raise 75 percent of support costs through their network of friends and family, local church, or other resources. Information on support costs will be made available upon application. Training and/or coaching in fund-raising is available.

Whole-Life Health:

CAMA Services is the relief and development arm of the C&MA. As part of an evangelical denomination, we are committed to biblical holism, which we are committed to model and reflect through our work. Because of this commitment, part of the required qualifications include a healthy lifestyle. As you move forward in the consideration process for appointment, this will be assessed.

Important Clarification:

Applicants 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.
