South African Theological Seminary is looking for a volunteer to administer a "Theopedia for Africa". They'll be using the same software as Wikipedia. The new wiki will focus on African Christianity, its leaders, its writers and theologians. If you're interested in helping contact SATS principal Reuben van Rensburg.

Speaking of needs, we could use some teachers with masters degrees in English, to come serve at PIBC in Chuuk or on Guam for the 2009-2010 school year. Contact our VP of academic affairs if you might be interested in a short-term mission. Each setting has its challenges -- but, hey, it's a tropical paradise -- and the needs are incredible.
