Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi United Arab Emirates
Gulf Theological Seminary (GTS) is a seminary based in Dubai, UAE. We are seeking a full-time, residential, seminary faculty member to direct our extension campus in the nearby city of Abu Dhabi. This strategic role will shape prospective church planters and pastors for the least-reached part of the world by teaching seminary courses, mentoring students, and overseeing the courses and operations of this extension site. The extension site will function in partnership with a gospel-centered church in Abu Dhabi, and will be located within the official evangelical church center in the city.
For directing the extension site, we are looking for a motivated, entrepreneurial, leader who is able to both work remotely as part of our larger seminary team and also work independently as the first staff member in that location. The site director will work closely with both the GTS team in Dubai and our church partner in Abu Dhabi, and will seek to build the constituency of GTS in Abu Dhabi through interactions with current students, prospective students, and prospective church partners.
The specific nature of the faculty role will vary based on a candidate’s qualifications. At a minimum we are looking for candidates with seminary training and teaching experience to be a capable instructor in our survey courses. Ideally, the candidate would have a terminal degree and ability to serve as a professor for graduate courses in Biblical Studies, Systematic Theology, Historical Theology, or Christian Ministry.
While the institutional support of GTS is sufficient for ministry expenses and a limited percentage of living costs, all members of the GTS faculty are international missionaries who are responsible to raise support for the majority of their own living costs in the global cities of this region. We are willing to work with your existing mission organization, or we can connect you with one of the organizations we already work with.
