Application Process & Timeline

Thank you for answering God’s call to serve overseas by ministering at Dalat International School. If you have questions, please email us.

Follow the link at the bottom of the page to complete our application process online. First, applicants will submit the preliminary application. If approved, we will invite them to review Dalat’s statement of faith and lifestyle statement. If those are approved, the full application process will be opened. This includes checking references, questions about the specific role, and questions about ministry.

After completing the online application, our hiring team will review all of your submissions. Selected candidates will be invited for an initial interview, allowing us to better acquaint ourselves with you and assess your compatibility with our school as a whole. Following a successful initial interview, a follow-up interview will be scheduled with the direct supervisor for the intended role. This interview will delve into the specific responsibilities associated with the job. When the hiring team is close to deciding on an applicant, a final interview will be arranged with the head of school. We prefer to do all of these interviews over ZOOM, so we can both see and hear the applicants during the interview process.

Using the online application process is our primary submission collection point. If you cannot make your submission in this manner, please send an email to
