CONNECTING GOD'S PEOPLE WITH GOD'S WORK
By faith, SIM USA’s mandate is to connect God’s people to God’s work in the world. Passionate to see the Body of Christ in all places and among all peoples, we support SIM’s efforts to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in communities where He is least known.
Communities where He is least known
Immigrants, Refugees, and International Students
People from many of the communities where Jesus is least known are beginning to call the U.S. home. In urban centers and on university campuses, individuals from an estimated 350 of these populations now live in the U.S. as immigrants, refugees, and university students. SIM USA’s Culture ConneXions ministries and partner missions, such as Global Frontier Missions, minister among our neighbors to engage men, women, and children with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
SIM–Asian Access Partnership for Japan
Over 99 percent of Japan’s 125 million people do not know Jesus, making this group the second largest population in the world that is living and dying without Him. In 2011, SIM and Asian Access began a strategic partnership to increase the number of missionaries to Japan. In close cooperation with national partners in Japan, SIM and Asian Access missionaries focus on disciple-making and church planting where they see God ripening the soil for harvest, such as in areas that have been hit with disasters. These missionaries also invest in younger leaders and collaborate across denominations to accelerate the multiplication of disciples and congregations.
Pray for receptivity to the gospel and a mighty working of the Holy Spirit among communities in the US that have yet to know God. Pray the US Church will compassionately engage these significant people, encouraging and loving them in the name of Jesus.
Pray for the mobilization and zeal of the whole Church in the U.S. for ministry both locally and globally. Pray also for increased SIM partnerships among Hispanic, African-American, and Asian-American churches.
Pray for the mobilization of missionaries committed to partnerships with Japanese leaders to multiply disciples and congregations in Japan.
Pray for holistic expressions of the gospel, effective evangelism and disciple-making, and Spirit-led collaborations and partnerships across Japan toward a church multiplication movement.
