WHAT IS MISSIONS?
[video transcript]

Missions is about crossing barriers to proclaim the crucified and risen Christ to those who do not know Him and who don’t have access to get to know Him. Missions is about making disciples who make disciples and equipping the local Church to carry out the work long after we have left, so that God may be glorified throughout all the earth.

We talk a lot about what missions is and why to get involved, but we don’t spend a lot of time talking about what missions is not. Missions is not just humanitarian aid. While responding to physical needs is necessary, and it’s a way to demonstrate Christ’s love for us and our care and compassion for others, missions is not only about providing disaster relief, medical and dental care, education, or clean water. Can you imagine not having a single Christian friend? Not having anyone in your family or in your community, who is a Christian? For so many people in the world, this is their reality. We get an opportunity to join with what God is already doing around the world. God doesn’t need us to do this work. He can reveal Himself, however He chooses—through dreams, visions, and other miraculous ways. How beautiful that He chooses to invite us into this process to tell people this good news and share the gospel, so that they may hear, and that they may choose to believe.

What is our responsibility in all of this? Our responsibility is to pray fervently, respond obediently, and to share boldly the message of the gospel.

You may be wondering, is it worth it? Is it worth the risk? Is it worth the suffering? I would say, what we do for God reveals what we believe about Him. Jesus is worth the risk. He is worth it, and He is worthy of it.

Do you have skills and experience in the following areas?

Many of SIM’s Health Ministry Team workers are serving on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19, while also caring for patients facing many other serious health conditions. We need workers to fill in for them as soon as we are able to send relief, hopefully beginning in the fall of 2020 and going into 2021. We have very specific needs for:
  • Primary care physicians
  • Specialty care physicians, especially surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Administrators
  • Physical and occupational therapists
  • Mental health workers
  • Community health educators
We are anticipating a great teacher shortage in all of SIM’s international schools this year and in some of our homeschool groups as well. Many schools around the world will be starting again in August, and we are asking the Lord to provide teachers who could be ready to go when borders reopen.
  • Elementary teachers pre-K to grade 5
  • Middle & high school core subject teachers (English, math, science, social studies)
  • Elective classes for all grades (PE, art, music, computers, foreign language, and more)
  • Special education
  • School directors and administrative staff
  • Teachers and assistants for homeschool groups
Facing a global pandemic places a very heavy load on our current leaders and their support staff in this season as they’re trying to care well for their teams. We have a need for workers with skills and experience in the following types of roles:
  • Personnel coordinators
  • Administrators
  • Accountants
  • Hospitality coordinators
  • Maintenance workers
  • Information services specialists
