Urgent needs

 As I have already shared our missionary team in Haiti has greatly reduced over the past couple of years and when we return to Haiti we will be the only missionaries living on campus. 

This is not necessarily a bad thing as we do firmly believe in the 'work yourself out of a job' philosophy by training up nationals but we do have some critical roles which need to be filled by missionaries or have missionaries come and do training. 

One of the critical needs Emmaus has is for an English teacher and it is always better to have a native English speaker to teach English! 

Emmaus offers 4 levels of English classes to Emmaus students but we also have outside students come  to learn English.  Classes take place twice a week with tutoring on the days in-between. 

We desperately need an English teacher for the 2021/22 academic year which begins mid August.  Here are the responsibilities and requirements. 


  • Prepare and deliver lessons for English levels 1-4 
  • Meet with students in small groups for English tutoring 
  • Grade weekly English books 

  • Native English speaker 
  • TEFL / TESOL qualification or willingness to complete the qualification 
  • Flexibility to work and live in a cross cultural environment 
  • Work as part of a team 

Emmaus also has a need for an IT manager, right now one of our students is taking on most of this responsibility. 

  • Maintain the campus network 
  • Helping students with technology 
  • Setting up student accounts 
  • Managing the IT lab 

  • Experience working in IT 
  • Flexibility to work in a cross cultural environment 
  • Willingness to learn Creole 

These are the two critical needs, which means we need someone to fulfill these positions as quickly as possible with a view to moving to Haiti in August. 

We also have a need for theology teachers, a Maintence manager and hospitality.  

If you have ANY questions about any of these roles, about living in Haiti, about anything to do with living at Emmuas about anything really related to this post please email me and I will try to answer all of your questions, if I don't know the answer I will find out for you. 

If you have never considered going overseas maybe now is the time to consider it, it may not be Emmaus in Haiti which is ok too, but considering the idea that God may be calling you to serve him somewhere else is important. 

Please pray with us for God's leading and for people to come and fulfill these urgent need so Emmaus can continue to train up Christ like leaders for the transformation of Haiti.
