“AIM Care” Ministry to Missionary Personnel

full term

Medical ministries, Support Services

Since 1991, AIM and Wycliffe Bible Translators International (WBTI), have worked cooperatively to provide counseling and support services for missionaries at Tumaini Counseling Centre in Nairobi, Kenya.

Tumaini is a Swahili word meaning ‘hope’. Tumaini Counseling Centers serve the members of AIM, WBTI, SIL and also missionaries from over 160 like-minded agencies throughout Africa. Their mission is to provide preventative and restorative mental health services and pastoral care, in order to enhance missionary resilience and fruitfulness.

Psychologists and Psychiatrists. We need you!

Have you got a minimum of three years professional experience that you could use on the mission field?

Could you walk this path alongside those who need your support?

We’re looking for deeply committed professionals who can integrate their Christian faith with their counseling practice. The goal will be to strengthen missionaries on the path that God has called them.

We need people to provide psychiatric evaluation and treatment, psychological or psychotherapeutic evaluations and treatment, and people who can assist with and lead workshops and seminars on related issues.

It would be great if you have previous missions experience, including cross cultural living and ministry, and have worked in a team context. It would also be good if you have experience of working in a multi-disciplinary team, of working with children and youth, and of distance counseling.
