Campus Engagement

Thailand

Purpose

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.

Post-secondary education is an influential time for young adults around the globe. Programs that aim to minister to university students have been proven to be effective in bringing students to Christ. Through the gospel, students are shaped into lifelong disciples of Christ to become leaders in the building and transformation of their communities.

Skills

Those with experience and skills in campus ministry would be especially welcomed, although people with the ability to build friendships across cultural and language barriers would also be able to serve effectively. TESOL (English) certificates, leadership training experience and community development skills would also be useful in this context. Flexibility, independence and cultural adaptation expected. This opportunity is available for volunteers and those desiring to serve long-term (3-month min for volunteers, up to long-term).

Support

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.
