International Leadership and Services
Have you ever thought what it takes for someone from Australia to serve as a missionary to Kenya? How about sending someone from Korea to Ecuador? Or from Nigeria to Canada? It takes more than a plane ticket.
SIM has been sending missionaries to communities where Christ is not yet known since 1893. Today, more than 4,000 workers from over 60 different nationalities serve in over 70 countries. SIM’s vision and purpose is consistent across all of its mission sites. This unity as well as ability for people from any country to participate in God’s plan for this world are prayerfully guided by SIM’s International Leadership and Services.
Through their ministry of leadership and support services, barriers are cleared for those whom God is calling to serve cross-culturally. These are a few of the vital resources provided to the mission:
• Global leadership and mission training
• Cross-cultural ministry development in 70+ countries
• Worldwide personnel, financial and technical support to remote mission locations
• Direction and planning for the expansion and long-term sustainability of SIM priority ministries
• Multi-lingual communication resources needed to share the gospel
From stories of restoration for widows through savings groups in Asia, to sharing the good news with unreached coal miners in the treacherous mountains of Bolivia, the Kingdom work of SIM and its partners is transforming communities today. From courageous teams re-entering an area devastated by terrorist activity in Nigeria, to trauma healing for the marginalised mothers of disabled children in Niger, we bear witness to the impact of God’s hand moving among the least-reached. And in all of SIM’s ministries, one can glimpse the imprint of the global leadership and support services that have made local initiatives a success for over a century.
If you would like to serve with us, please talk to us and let us know!
Pray for unity, courage, wisdom, and discernment for the International Director and his Leadership Team. Pray for the Deputy International Directors as they mentor, support, encourage, develop, and give accountability to our SIM leaders.
Pray for effective mentoring and discipling at all levels of leadership, especially for wisdom in developing and encouraging SIM’s upcoming leaders.
Pray for our teams at International Leadership and Services who do vital coordinating and support work in the areas of personnel, finance, projects, communication, archives, operations, administrative support, and information systems.
Pray for the Ministry Point Persons as they work alongside the International Leadership Team to sharpen our ministry priorities and multi-country ministries.
Pray for the ongoing growth and development of all SIM workers in all aspects of their lives and ministry. Pray that mission personnel will be equipped to live and work in an increasingly hostile ministry environment.
