Staff Needs


Thank you for your interest in our school! We have a need for elementary teachers and secondary teachers for the 2018-2019 school year and beyond. 


Currently GLCA serves 50 students from thirteen different countries.  Many of our students are the children of missionaries living and ministering in and around Lisbon. Others are international students from unbelieving families. Our teachers come to us as either short term (1-2 years) or career missionaries, each raising their own financial support. 

All staff must:

  1. Be committed to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
  2. Be involved in a local church.
  3. Hold a four-year degree, verified by transcript.
  4. Hold a valid teaching certificate for the position for which application is made. **
  5. Love kids and have a team player mentality.
  6. Agree to serve at GLCA a minimum of one school year.
  7. Come prepared to enjoy the challenges and joys of a wonderful, cross-cultural ministry!

**While we desire that all of our staff have a valid teaching credential, the School Board may make exceptions to the above requirements after careful review on an individual basis. Please contact the school for further detail.


 If you are interested in learning more about teaching at Greater Lisbon Christian Academy, contatct Cal and Joyce Voelker and let us know of your interest.  


GLCA has been staffed by missionaries for over 30 years. While each teacher must secure their own funding, (we offer no salary) in order to keep tuition affordable for the missionary families we serve, the school can assist by providing housing and the use of a vehicle. Generally the application process takes from 3 months to one year for short term teachers and up to two years for career missionary teachers.
