Job Changes for Israel

Since 2009, when we joined our sending organization TeachBeyond, Israel’s vision has reached beyond one country. At Black Forest Academy, Israel was able to help one school accomplish their mission through media, but his desire has always been to help not just one school, but many. In light of this vision, Israel will join the Communications Team of TeachBeyond this July.

TeachBeyond is our sending organization. Their vision is, “to be an instrument of redemptive change through transformational education – an education grounded in Judeo-Christian values that equips students to reach their full potential as human beings. It is a vision for global impact, building bridges between peoples and cultures.” TeachBeyond currently has about 330 members serving in 32 countries. These numbers increase every year as TeachBeyond partners with, founds and equips new schools around the globe. With 30 partner schools, TeachBeyond serves a combined enrollment of over 26,000 national and international students. If you’d like to learn more about TeachBeyond, please view their website or the annual report.

Israel’s change in position means that he will no longer be an employee of BFA, though he will continue to partner with BFA’s Communications Team. Many things are still being discussed regarding the specifics of TeachBeyond’s Communications Team, but Israel’s hope is to make TeachBeyond and it’s partner schools successful in using transformational education to reach the world for Christ. Logistically, very little will change for us. Israel will work from the TeachBeyond offices in Kandern, the same town where BFA is located. Dani will continue to serve BFA as an Assistant Chaplain. We will live in the same house and work less than a kilometer away from each other. Israel will still be involved at BFA through coaching and being a class sponsor and dorm sub.

Here’s a little video of my office at Black Forest Academy. This is where I spend my time, mostly meeting with girls over a cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy!

Won’t You Be My Neighbor…in Germany?

Every year, BFA has staff members that return home to the States (or Canada or wherever else home might be). The staff member might be leaving because they only made a one or two year commitment, or they might need to leave for health purposes, or they might not have enough support to remain on the field. BFA would love to have staff members stay for years and years, but that’s not always possible. So, when someone leaves, someone else needs to fill in.

Do you want to fill in? Do you have a passion for missions, or for helping Christians love Jesus more, or for Christian education? Because BFA is always in need of people who want to invest in missionary kids. And you don’t have to be a teacher. There’s pretty much a place for every kind of person with every kind of skill. I mean, we’re not teachers, and we’re going.

So, here are Black Forest Academy’s staff needs for the 2010-2011 school year.
