Cross Cultural Pastor

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. 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 smallg roup discipleship.

Skills

Those with experience in church planting, leading small groups, leadership development, and training others for various aspects of church ministry would be welcome. Cross-cultural pastor experience an asset. 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.
