Pioneer Church Planting (Please mention PRF Nr. 8458 if interested)

Contribution to Strategy:

SIM Malawi is emphasizing five areas of strategic priority. Pursue the Unreached is one of the priorities. The Yawo people are a predominantly Muslim people group of 2.5 million located in Malawi, Mozambique, and Tanzania. They are largely unreached with just a few believers. SIM Malawi desires to evangelize and plant churches among the Yawo.

 

Responsibilities: Evangelize and church plant among the rural M* mYawo people. This will require an acceptance of a simple lifestyle and living closely to local rural populations near their villages. Gain in-depth language and cultural understanding through self-directed study and language helpers. Develop relationships with local Yawo as individuals and with groups with the intention of sharing the gospel primarily through chronological Bible story telling. Disciple new believers and help them form groups. Train leaders.

Future Plans: It is envisioned that new believers will work together with the missionaries to reach their fellow Yawo.

 

First degree required.

Required training: Knowledge of Islam, as well as Folk Islam and animism whether from experience or courses. Person needs an excellent knowledge of the Bible, Christian Theology as well as a very good understanding of spiritual warfare.

Recommended Experience: Prior cross-cultural experience.

Personality Issues/ Cultural Considerations:: Need to be team oriented with the ability to work in multicultural teams. Because of the stress of the situation (it is a very spiritually dark area), applicants need to be hardy, emotionally mature, and preferably not with a lot of personal historical issues that could cause issues under stress.

 

 

Note: Preparation takes approx. 6 months
