SIM has a children's project called Today for Tomorrow in the Region of Southern Africa, currently being directed by SIM missionaries in Zimbabwe. They are looking for volunteers with a heart for reaching and discipling children to join them and assist in the various facets of the ministry. The ministry covers twelve countries in Southern Africa.
Zimbabwe is immersed in various sects that mislead people, chief among them being Zionists. They exhort each other not to read the Bible, but instead listen to instant prophecy from among their membership. In addition to being legalistic, they are also polygamous, targeting teenage girls from their membership. They desperately need the true Gospel of Jesus Christ that can liberate them from many forms of spiritual bondage.
Are you a theologian who would like to try something different? Zimbabwe needs a Leadership and Discipleship Training Coordinator. This is an opportunity to rescue believers from the misconceptions of the prosperity gospel movement. You will use the Pastors' Book Set ministry as a strategy for leadership and discipleship training. This ministry is needed in the Church for as long as the Lord tarries. You will train local believers to continue ministry beyond your time.
The Church in Zimbabwe needs to be protected from marauding prosperity gospel peddlers extorting money from unsuspecting Christians. It also needs to learn God's principles for financial self-sustainability. A correct understanding of God's Word is the answer. The Pastors Bookset ministry will fill in this gap and stabilise the Church and individual believers. Are you willing to partner with God as he builds his Church in Zimbabwe? This is the opportunity.
The young daughters of Africa face extreme challenges. They do household chores, go to school, fetch water and firewood from kilometers away after school, do laundry, and cook. The situation is worsened if parents have died. They become the mothers. They are also often the victims of abuse ranging from indecent assault to rape and under-age pregnancy with very little, if any, protection. She needs help and empowerment to meet these challenges.
Faced with the challenge of prosperity teachings, Islam, other religions and false cultist teachings awash on the Zimbabwean landscape, the Leaders Equipping and Resourcing Network (LEARN) project aims to resource church leaders so that they can teach and explain the Bible accurately and confidently.
