Pionier - Evangelist ( Forgotten People Focus: Borana Evangelism and Outreach PRF 7928) Bei Interesse PRF Nr. angeben

Contribution to Strategy: SIM Kenya’s mission is “To the glory of God by reching the unreached, equipping the Church.” We do this by reaching out to Asians, Somalis/Boranas and Coastal Swahili, where most follow Islamic teaching. Our strategy is holistic in approach, seeking to meet children’s, youth, and women’s felt needs in the areas of education, HIV and AIDS support, medical and administrative support. There are many unreached people groups in Meru/Isiolo area. The Boranas are one of them. For this group, the tentmaking approach has proved to be the most appropriate. You can enter the community by a secular profession like teaching, nursing, agriculture, or as a vet. Thus one-on-one relationships can grow in which Christ can be shared. You would be expected to learn the language and the culture of the people to the level of confidently relating to them and being accepted by them. In the process, you would develop various activities resulting in open doors amongst the people group.

 

Responsibilities: You will be involved in part-time practical ministries according to your vocational training. You will also be involved in language and culture learning, sharing Christ with individuals, showing hospitality appropriate to cultural demands, conducting home visits and getting involved in various activities for outreach purposes amongst the Borana.

 

Other Ministry Possibilities: This is a lifestyle which will demand your full engagement in the local setting. As described above, this ministry is varied in activity but with the focus always remaining the same.

Future Plans: The missionary will be working together with Kenyans from the very beginning.

 

 

Note: Preparation takes approx. 6 months
