There are about 5000 administrative districts in Thailand without a church or resident Christian. We are looking for people who want to share Christ within these communities.
The ambassadors for Christ will live in these districts. They will be responsible for sharing the gospel widely and frequently. They will need to be able to identify the person of peace who welcomes them into their home. They will need to be able to share the gospel with all in that home in ways that the listeners understand how the gospel meets their needs. The goal is to try to see the whole family come to Christ, be baptized and incorporated into simple churches.
- Understanding all the villages in the district and find ways to share the gospel with all the villages and all social levels.
- To use various means to build goodwill and a positive outlook toward Christ in all villages.
- Follow up all interest in the gospel with personal visits to ensure they understand the gospel of Christ. Much of the evangelism will be done within households with extended family.
- Find ways to utilize nearby Thai Christians in the evangelism of the district the ambassadors are living in.
- To establish new churches in the homes of those responding to the gospel and train these new believers in evangelism.
- A passion to share Christ personally, with small groups and public venues
- Flexibility and willingness to learn and adjust in order that Christ is shared and understood by the Thai.
- Experience sharing Christ utilizing a variety of methods and a willingness to learn new methods that are suitable for the Thai context
- Good skills with individuals and with small groups.
- Creativity and an ability to “think on one’s feet”
- Ability to find and build bridged to the non-Christians in these communities.
You are willing to learn, serve and persevere. In Christ-like humility and boldness you do everything it takes to see the area you live in reached with the Gospel and communities of believers established.
