An urgent need exists for an agriculturalist to provide oversight to an agricultural program that enables Nigerien farmers to become self-sustaining. It shows them how to grow and market alternative crops that provide food security and economic development. Would God be leading you to this position?
Development and Relief
Are you looking for a challenging ministry to an indigenous people group? You can use your practical skill or your professional training to open doors for the Gospel in isolated communities. You would seriously impact improvement to people's living conditions while building relationships within the community. As you create an environment in which the Good News of Jesus Christ can be shared, you would encourage, support, and disciple local believers.
Is God urging you into this unique opportunity?
As an agriculturalist, you are valuable to missions! You can make a difference in some of the neediest regions in India. You could use your agricultural training to add value to community health and development initiatives. Please prayerfully consider how you could be involved.
If you know community development techniques such as farming and health, this is a wonderful opportunity to transfer your God-given skills into church planting! So what is the connection?
Doing community development in this thirsty desert land gives you a foundation for making friendships and identifying potential local believers. Imagine the impact you could have in this part of the world by letting God use your special skills!
Would you like to impact lives in ways beyond your wildest dreams? You could use your degree in social work, international development, or a similar field in programme that ministers to the needs of some of the most neglected women and children in one of South Aisa's megacities. The project aims to meet the holistic needs of the women and children through a variety of interventions. This position requires a person who is able to work alongside the existing team of local staff, providing encouragement, mentoring, advice, and support as needed.
Do you have a yearning to help poor people develop their communities, thereby helping themselves? You could work with the local church and community to investigate and/or design and manage new community development projects. You would help locate and secure capital, equipment, people, and resources as necessary. There could also be opportunities to teach classes on project management or development in local colleges and seminars to community/church groups.
Do you have any training or experience in water development? Here is an opportunity for you to work alongside field missionaries, community people, and church leaders, educating them in practical installations for clean water and maintenance of water systems (chemical treatment, borehole repair, maintenance, etc.).
In the process, you would disciple the workers in the water project so they can grow in their knowledge of Jesus and strengthen their walk with Him. You could coordinate with the local pastors to help with evangelism.
Do you want to serve people holisticly? This urban third world country has the worst case of arsenic poisoning in the world. Seventy percent of the population drink arsenic-contaminated water.
Our Arsenic Poisonic Prevention Program is designed to assist and alleviate people at risk through awareness raising, tube-well water testing, arsenic removal filter distribution, and a patient management program. Building meaningful relationships with the beneficiaries is also a key focus of our holistic program.
This is an exciting opportunity to disciple new believers and those in existing young churches. Create a program that can train local leaders, many of whom are uneducated and illiterate, in order to build up the churches. This
could be either by including the Borana evangelists or working parallel to them.
Here is a unique opportunity to convey God's love through a community development program in agriculture. Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world, and is renowned for frequent famines, rapid population growth, and low life expectancy. In this arid land, Sowing Seeds of Change in the Sahel (SSCS) seeks to change hearts, minds, and ultimately behavior. Our goal is to alleviate needless suffering and hunger by being a beacon of hope, not only for this life, but also for the life to come.
