Our vision is to see Vietnam transformed through indigenous, biblical movements of reproducing communities of believers in every segment of society, obeying Jesus and His Great Commission.
Are you willing to come to Vietnam and use the many opportunities that exist through your professional role to serve God, be part of our team and realize this vision?
We are looking for medical professionals who will be living examples of Christ, passionate about sharing the good news and open to using their medical skills in flexible ways. We are seeking people who are willing to develop projects that integrate medical care with gospel proclamation and church planting; we also have emerging opportunities to partner with local churches in community medical projects.
Because of the sensitivities of working in a creative access country, workers usually need a recognised professional role. There are opportunities to work with recognised non-governmental organizations, in academic teaching or in medical clinics, and therefore experience and postgraduate qualifications are an advantage to provide wider opportunities.?br>In an environment where many have open hearts and are ready to hear the truth of the gospel you will find opportunities to sensitively share your faith with colleagues, patients or students. We are committed to make disciples who are obedient to Jesus; so through these relationships you will walk alongside people as they either integrate into existing churches or, through their own networks, form communities of believers. We focus on group discipleship approaches and seek to equip people to disciple others.
Since we encourage team members to take on part time roles whenever possible there are also other opportunities to contribute to other aspects of the team's strategic ministry such as training lay leaders and developing resources for the local church eg in oral Bible storying.?br>You will be based in an urban setting and be part of a small local team for mutual encouragement, fellowship, prayer and worship. As we are committed to the growth of the local church, you will commit to being part of a local Vietnamese fellowship. You should be aware that gospel work in Vietnam requires wisdom and discretion; we follow certain security precautions (especially in communication) and seek to work with sensitivity to the local situation, whilst remaining bold with the gospel. Living standards in Vietnam are lower than in most sending countries, and you will need flexibility to face the challenges of living in a cross-cultural setting. Long term workers will initially be in a two year program of Vietnamese language and culture integration and towards the end of this time they will seek work appropriate to their profession.
Individuals should have heart to see The Church in Vietnam develop and should have a developed biblical understanding of how they can integrate their profession with ministry. They also need to be team players who will participate in team life, offering mutual encouragement and support.
You should have the necessary professional qualifications and CV to work in your specialty. You should have developed a biblical understanding of integrating your profession with ministry.
