THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION AND DISCIPLESHIP
AIM is looking for one or more Scripture Engagement Consultants to equip ongoing gospel ministry among a number of unreached people groups in Tanzania.

The SE Consultant will travel around Central and Coastal Tanzania to visit and assist ministry teams. The SE Consultant will seek to:
- Encourage AIM teams already working among these groups and promote best practices.
- Promote Scripture engagement activities in local churches.
- Mentor Tanzanians who are already directly involved in Scripture engagement.
- Partner with Churches to create models for how Swahili and mother tongue Scripture can co-exist and complement one another in church life.
