Imagine Thailand exists to build strong communities, with and through local communities and people. We believe in the capacity of youth, university students and skilled professionals to create a new future for communities in need. We do this through leadership development in the university and marketplace, through education and teacher training, through community development initiatives and through building bridges between the local church and local community.
Church planting work is being done through international and local believers in the various locations where Imagine Thailand is engaged; making disciples, working with local pastors, as well as small group discipleship.
Those with lifeguarding skills would be a valuable asset to the team in Takua Pa, both for the safety of the children as well as teaching swimming skills and training national staff in water safety procedures. Flexibility, independence and cultural adaptation expected. A person with the ability to build friendships across cultural and language barriers would be able to serve the team effectively. This opportunity is available for volunteers and those desiring to serve long-term (3-month min for volunteers, up to long-term).
The on-field team consists of internationals, Thai and Burmese nationals. There is a Thai national director in each of the 4 regions. Depending on location, you will be in regular connection with your area team for staff meetings and devotions. We will provide help setting up accommodations and preparing for cultural adjustment with a 1-2 week on-boarding for ministry, including orientation to the local community and amenities.
Our International Missions team will walk with you along the way – from application to deployment. Training, administrative support and mission coaching will be provided, along with assistance for promotional and fundraising efforts.
