Asia

Helping the least reached people groups across Asia meet, know and follow Jesus
The earth’s largest and most populous continent, Asia is home to more than half of the world’s population. Despite its size and density, the continent contains many of the largest unreached countries on the planet. Despite Christian persecution in some parts of the region, Christianity is growing at an amazing rate in many other Asian locales and there is tremendous potential for the growth of the gospel across the continent.

Udon Thani, Thailand

The Udon Training Center is a multi-faceted project aiming to shepherd a gospel movement in the Northern Provinces of Thailand. Using the SES method for teaching English, providing a place for leadership training, a meeting place for a missions-minded church, training and deploying leaders to make disciples and plant churches will make the UTC a hub for Christian Education.

Bangkok, Thailand

One to 12 month “front-line” positions in evangelistic English classes where each short-termer is doing church-planting and evangelism. We have very specific dates for arrival, on-field training that prepares people from any background (even without teaching experience) to teach with excellence and when classes start and end all year round.

Bangkok, Thailand

Prayer teams are welcome to come almost any time of the year. While not “front line” positions, prayer teams are vital for supporting local ministry. There is one key weekend in July every year during our Friendship Camp when prayer teams are especially useful.
