Position Information

Contribution to Strategy: SIM Niger’s 100+ missionaries serve in a wide variety of ministries in several locations across the country. The purpose of SIM Niger is to glorify God by planting, strengthening, and partnering with the Church in Niger. Church planters are needed to partner with churches and other church-planting missionaries to do evangelism and launch consistent discipleship programs among unreached people groups. Church planting is the main ministry, but it may include literacy, women's ministries, basic health care, sharing better agricultural methods, working with children, etc.

Ministry: CE- Evangelism/Outreach

Responsibilities: 1. Develop friendships with unreached people, establishing a climate of trust that would enable the missionary to share Christ with them. 2. Use evangelism methods, such as storying and media programs. 3. If the security situation allows it, the church planter may travel to outlying areas for evangelism. 4. Disciple believers, both in the town of residence and, as possible, in outlying areas. 5. Single or married women can work specifically with women and children. She would: a.) Visit women in their homes, reaching out to them through friendship evangelism. b.) Teach principles of healthy living. c.) Host Bible clubs for the children. d.) Conduct literacy lessons for women and older children. 6. Facilitate the development of Christian communities meeting for fellowship, teaching, worship, witness, and observance of ordinances, while identifying and training future church leaders.

Ministry 2: CD- Discipleship/Spiritual Growth

Other Ministry Possibilities: Literacy and development or agriculture could be a valuable means of reaching the Manga.

Future Plans: The vision is to disciple and mentor local believers to be able to lead a church, evangelize, and disciple new believers on their own. Ideally, the missionary will be working with a local evangelist or pastor.
