GLCA School Teachers


The Position


The Greater Lisbon Christian Academy (GLCA) has openings for elementary and secondary teachers who want to minister in English to a variety of nationalities, both believers and non-believers, for the sake of the Kingdom. Your experience here will include ministry with a supportive team. Classes are small which provide an opportunity to build relationships with students. Some teaching experience is required.

2024-2025 Needs:

  • 1st & 2nd Grade Combo Teacher
  • Secondary English Teacher
  • Secondary History Teacher
  • Assistant to the Administrator

The Need

Come experience Europe while serving the Savior. Imagine yourself impacting MK’s (missionary kids) and international students in a country that is only 2% Evangelical! Housing and the use of a vehicle are provided for first year teachers serving 3-10 months (some restrictions apply).

Portugal is a beautiful land with a rich history. Its people are friendly…and lost. The Portuguese Evangelical Alliance estimates that only 0.4% of the population is evangelical! Years of Roman Catholic domination, plus waves of cults and the lure of materialism have taken their toll. The average Portuguese person has a hole in his heart, yet seems inoculated against the message of Christ. What he/she needs is to see Christ lived out in another person.

Working as an ABWE missionary, you’ll have the opportunity to support and collaborate with our national pastors and missionaries in reaching the lost in Portugal. Over the past 20 years, the ABWE missions team planted seven churches in addition to our teaching centers, and eight of our nine church plants are pastored by Portuguese leaders.

The Impact

The opportunity to make a spiritual impact through Christian Education in Portugal is great. Many of the missionary families who send their children to our school were either drawn to or remain in Portugal because of GLCA. Through your service, you’ll enable teammates and other tent-makers to serve the community, evangelize, and build relationships with unbelievers with the goal of sharing the hope of Christ.

As a missionary teacher, you also have the unique opportunity to use your classroom as a place of ministry. Discipleship and evangelism happen daily as you minister both to Christian students and to unbelieving students from international families.
