Become our new Service Asia Facilitator whose main function is to ensure the smooth running of the placement of short termers who will follow the discipleship program of our organisation: Service Asia.
Our field is spread out over the mainland and various islands in South East Asia. Most of our neighbors have never met a follower of Jesus. They follow a ritual and works based worldview, with an absence of an assurance of salvation.
The Serve Asia Facilitator's (SAF) main function is to advance the overall Serve Asia (SA) program for our field. This includes oversight of the field SA Coordinators who place Serve Asia Workers, and evaluation of the field Serve Asia program function. Where necessary, the SAF will change and enhance operations of the program.
First of all you will need to have a good grasp of the Serve Asia application process. It is your role to oversee the program and to have a good ear to listen to the needs of our teams on the field and the needs of the short-termers. Bring those needs together to improve the program. This will contribute to our vision: to reach out to the people in South East Asia with Gods love.
You will need to review and update the country orientation guides and security guidelines annually.
You will also be a member of our mobilization group. This group implements strategic means to mobilize prayer and resources for our field.
Often the short termer(s) is searching for the will of God for his life through our Serve Asia program. That makes your prayers very important in this role. We are not a Christian travel agency. Our aim is to make disciples of Christ among all nations.
The predominant religions in South East Asia are Islam, Buddhism and folk religions. In Thailand, most are Buddhist and there is also a large population of Muslims, especially in the south. Although some people groups have significant numbers of believers, many remain unreached.

The applicant should be prepared to live an appropriate lifestyle within the community in which they will live. Among other things, this relates to dressing modestly, and being sensitive to the dietary restrictions of our neighbors. This is very helpful as it would build bridges with neighbours and friends. It also means contextualizing the language we use to share about Jesus. In the local culture it is important that the men relate to the men and the women relate to the women.
