About Mexico City & the Role

Mexico City is the largest city in Latin America, with approximately 21.2 million people in the entire metropolitan area. Accordingly, Mexico City is an important and strategic location for ministry outreach and church planting.

Join a small international school, Instituto Metropolitano Estrella, which was originally designed to serve the children of English-speaking missionaries and national pastors whose children often pursue their college education in the States. Serve primarily local Mexican families with a quality education in English. The greatest needs for the following year are teachers for grades K-8, although high school teachers are also welcome.
