Staff Needs


"Experience Europe while serving the Savior. Imagine yourself impacting MKs (missionary kids) and international students in a country that is only 0.4% Evangelical!  Housing and the use of a vehicle are provided for first year teachers serving 5-10 months.  All classes are taught in English."


Thank you for your interest in our school! We have a need for two elementary teachers, a special needs aide, and two secondary teachers for the 2019-2020 school year and beyond. 


Currently GLCA serves 50 students from eight 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. 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, contact 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 provides housing and the use of a vehicle for first year teachers.
