Church Planting in Thailand

Thailand, East Asia

There is a region in Thailand that despite a long history of sacrificial Christian mission by dedicated Christian workers, the Christian population remains under 0.1 percent of the total. Yet the church is alive and has its place in the global church.

The region has thousands of migrant workers from unreached communities around the country as well as neighbouring countries. What if God were to transform this into a place of discipling and sending? 

Are you a church planter with a long-term perspective that is sensing God's call to Thailand? Check out this video to learn more:

Far: tale of a former Buddhist from SIM Stories on Vimeo.

Tee, like millions of traditionally Buddhist Thais, feels far from his religion. He wonders if there might be another way. Watch more of his story in this atmospheric new video from SIM Stories and SIM Thailand.



Please pray with us about SIM’s potential church planting ministry in this region of Thailand, and that He would send the right people at the right time.

2018 SIM Founders Day

The past year has been one of celebrating God’s faithfulness over 125 years. What a wonder that He would choose ordinary people like our founders—and like us—to take forward the gospel. However, after the rhythm of celebration comes the rhythm of work. We have celebrated a great harvest of the past. Now let us pray for the harvest of the future.
