Position Information

Contribution to Strategy: SIM Niger’s 100+ missionaries serve in a wide variety of ministries in numerous locations across the country. The purpose of SIM Niger is to glorify God by planting, strengthening, and partnering with the Church in Niger. We desire to be a church planting mission, reaching the lost across Niger, where as many as eight people groups are considered unreached. A TIMO team would be on the ground training those interested in church planting ministry in the future. TIMO believes that first hand immersion into unreached people groups is the strongest learning experience one can have and the most effective evangelism.

Ministry: CM- Equipping for Mission

Responsibilities: Under the guidance of an experienced missionary couple, the Nigerien TIMO team will:

1. Learn how to learn a language and then begin learning one of Niger's vernacular languages.

2. Study and use methods of outreach.

3. Learn to pray and intercede while spending time in prayer and intercession.

4. Complete reading and homework assignments, following a structured curriculum.

5. Do all of the above while living simply among one of Niger's people groups.

 

Ministry 2: CE- Evangelism/Outreach

Other Ministry Possibilities: This would be a full-time ministry.

Future Plans: To see local team members trained as church planting missionaries who will plant churches across Niger.
