Come help us launch a brand-new, American-model technological university at the Central Asian crossroads of the ancient Silk Roads. Teach or tutor students in a STEM field using English in the core curriculum of the university or preparatory school. Learn one of the other two primary languages besides English, either Uzbek or Russian, to broaden your social mobility and relational influence. Live out and share your faith in the midst of local and international students from unreached peoples across Central Asia. Embed yourself as an ambassador for the Kingdom of God and an apprentice of Jesus Christ along with us. You’ll be blessed as a peacemaker bringing reconciliation and restoration to those who don’t yet know Him!
You will join our team of highly educated professionals with combined decades of experience in academia, education and development work in Central Asia. You’ll be guided and mentored in disciplemaking in a predominantly Muslim context, with a focus on justice and righteousness applied in emerging nations.
This opportunity provides a blend of you offering quality academic training in your field, while receiving serious mentoring and training biblically and cross-culturally for a life of holistic, Kingdom-building service among the unreached. You’ll be guided in your personal and spiritual contribution, as well as developing professional skills and growing in your knowledge and character as part of our seasoned team who’ve made this region home for many years.
