We want to see missionary service inquiries grow through our active, professional, and intentional use of social media to increase inquiry responses and online donations. Our main goals are twofold: to increase online activity to two inquiries per day, and to grow online giving from 40% to 60% of total receipts.
SIM Canada believes these goals can be achieved by more effective use of social media that will draw more ‘GO-ers’ and ‘GIVE-ers’ to the website. This will be done through providing more constant and consistent information for social media platforms to engage more people in God’s work through storytelling, as well as challenge more people to serve through constant and targeted promotion of ministry opportunities.
We are seeking a dedicated staff person or consultant to train and mentor new members in their communication.
Pray that we may engage the right staff person or hire the best social media agency to perform this role.
SIM Canada is embarking on a long-term strategy to boost missionary numbers in our churches through several objectives.
For churches who currently have relationships with SIM missionaries, SIM Canada will implement a "Stronger Together" plan where churches will be invited to participate in the processing, sending, monitoring, mentoring, and supporting of missionaries from their own churches.
For churches who financially support SIM Canada’s activities but who do not have any missionaries from their congregation, we desire to engage these churches to embrace a new paradigm of missions and their role in it. This often begins by increased engagement in a project and, over time, active involvement in ministries.
Pray that the team of six will identify strategic churches and begin building meaningful relationships with them.
Pray that churches will be receptive to the engagement strategies employed by the church engagement team.
Rural Church Planting
Our aim is to equip and gather Christians in key rural areas to establish churches. We also actively evangelise through friendship and Bible-based ministries.
Many areas of Paraguay are unreached by the gospel and have no evangelical witness. These areas also suffer from a lack of resources and services. Are you a doctor, nurse, teacher, mechanic, or other? Many different gifts and talents are helpful to opening doors to the gospel in these communities and meeting physical needs. Presently a doctor, an eye doctor, an appliance repairman, a retired school principle / handyman, a youth pastor, and others are serving and teaching in the countryside. If you feel called to Paraguay but do not see your profession or gifts mentioned please contact your nearest SIM office to see how you might put them to good use for the love of Christ in Paraguay.
Come and Serve
For the Lord to raise up evangelists and church planters from existing rural SIM churches to go to communities where He is not known.
For our missionaries to have the health and stamina required for rural living.
For our missionaries to have a growing dependence on the Holy Spirit and an increasing boldness to call on God for the seemingly impossible.
Our goal as a ministry team is to see missionaries flourishing with quality administration and member care. If you have skills in administration and a desire to facilitate multiple ministries, then this is your ministry area.
Come and Serve
Pray for people to come and assist in administration for the growth of ministries to least-reached areas of Ecuador.
Pray for clarity with regards to the vision and direction of SIM Ecuador.
Pray for our leadership team and their decisions for the future.
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 4000 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 India, 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.
Come and Serve
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 the Malaysia Initiative and its implementation Task Force that they will be effective and this initiative will launch SIM into ministry opportunities among the least reached.
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.
