Evangelist/ Gemeindebauer (Evangelism/Church Planting among the Fulani PRF 855) Bei Interesse PRF Nr. angeben

Contribution to Strategy: There is a unique wide open door to do Muslim evangelism in Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso is blessed with religious freedom and enjoys peace and political stability. Most of the Fulani people have never had the chance to hear the Gospel in their own language. The government is receptive to expatriate presence and missionary activity even in the northern third of the country which is almost totally Islamic. The Burkinabé (the people of Burkina) are noted for their warmth toward visitors. The primary objective of this ministry is to plant and strengthen churches among Fulani.

Ministry: CP- Church Planting

Responsibilities: SIM BF's goal is to share the person of Jesus the Messiah so Fulani can focus their lives on Him and grow in faith and fellowship. We want to support the formation of self-sustaining fellowship groups (churches) which can in turn reproduce themselves many times over in this M* people group. This ministry involves living among the Fulani, learning their language and forming relationships with them in order to communicate Christ. Fulani outreach by SIM members or the church is happening in six locations in Burkina Faso. However, the Fulani remain, for the most part, an unreached people group. Because of the poverty and the stress of societal change all around the Fulani, they are open to our presence. Building trust (through friendship, famine relief, literacy, and community development) can open doors to sharing the gospel with the Fulani. This can be done in the north where the Fulani are the majority ethnic group or in the many areas where they are in the minority.

 

Ministry outreach could be created around the Fulanis' interests and needs (animal husbandry and veterinary skills, agricultural practices, education, use of cultural forms of music/storytelling, job skills, etc.). There is also a need for Bible training and assistance in creating text/audio/visual materials for outreach by local believers and radio broadcast. Initial language and cultural training begins in a majority Fulani area of the country (Djibo, Dori or Sebba) until competency is attained.
