South Asia: Living God’s Mission with Muslim-Background Believers
Location: South Asia, South Asia, urban context
Program name: tranSend (1-2 years)
Dive into an immersion experience in a Muslim context with home stays, language study and mission mentoring. Join a team with current VMMissions workers as an intern prepared to listen, learn and acquiesce to the rigors of life in this context. This worker family is also open to processing possibilities with prospective long-term workers.
Study language and culture, serve the team in potentially mundane ways, and gain the glimpse of a lifetime into the fascinating and complex dynamics of God bringing His transformation to a beautiful people who, in God’s sight, are far more than mere population statistics.
Length of assignment: Variable, up to one year before consideration of a long-term assignment.
Muslim background believer church: What does it mean to be part of a movement of Muslim background believers in an overwhelmingly traditional Muslim community in the heart of South Asia?
A family who have been serving with VMMissions since 2007 know. As Associated Workers with VMMissions, they bring years of experience and a country-wide network of relationships to their ministry within this context. From their unobtrusive “seat at the table”, they look for opportunities and ways to empower this locally contextualized expression of church in ways that will lead to long-term, inter-generational sustainability and growth.
