Papua New Guinea: Bible College Teachers - Pastoral Training


Papua New Guinea has a great need for national pastors to be trained in the Bible so they will be well-equipped to evangelize and disciple their own people. Two people are needed to teach pastoral training at Christian Union Bible College and during pastoral training classes in bush locations. The teachers will be training people who have very little education in how to be pastors and how to effectively minister to the spiritual needs of the people in their communities.


Applicants must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from a Bible college or university, preferably in pastoral ministries or theology. Teachers need to be able to develop lesson plans and facilitate discussion-based learning.

Language Requirements

Teachers must be able to speak Melanesian Pidgin.


Mount Hagen, Papua New Guinea.

Length of Service
  • Mid-term: one semester or longer (six to twenty-four months)
  • Long-term: two or more years
Ministry Description

Christian Union Bible College was founded in 2005 and provides urgently needed Bible and vocational training for men and women who are called into full-time ministry. The college focuses on in-depth Bible training, holiness theology, and practical teaching on church planting and pastoral care. WGM PNG has a three-tier plan to bring Bible teaching to the people of PNG. The Bible college is the first part of that plan, with the other two pieces being short, concentrated classes for individuals who can’t attend the longer college program and training sessions in villages for pastors and lay people who are unable to travel to Mount Hagen. The school year runs from August through May with a semester break in December.

Quick Facts
  • With over 800 languages, PNG is linguistically the world’s most complex nation. Church services are conducted and Bibles are written in Melanesian Pidgin, the local trade language.
  • Christian Union Church, formed in 1964 by Churches of Christ in Christian Union missionaries, currently has about 120 congregations and approximately 90 national pastors in seven districts and areas. While some churches have buildings, other congregations meet in grass huts or under trees.
  • Men and women have very distinct roles in Papua New Guinean society. Women in the garden, take care of the children and pigs, and look after the home while men traditionally handle all negotiations.
