MECHANICS FOR AFRICA
MfA is currently inviting applications for the post of Chief Executive and Principal of the MfA, based in Ndola, Zambia. The successful candidates will succeed Jason and Claire Stonier. For several years, Jason and Claire have been heading up Mechanics for Africa in Zambia. They will be returning home in a year’s time, having raised the profile of the work and developed the facilities significantly. They believe their successors should be committed Christians qualified and skilled to manage the academic programme at a level which they do not believe to be their particular strength. This could therefore be a post that would attract someone or more likely a couple with a mission heart from a teaching background. The details are to be found at http://www.milfordbaptistchurch.org.uk/mfa-vacancy/.
