Imagine Yourself Making a Difference in a Needy Part of the World



This video is about making our lives count, improving the lot of others and shaping our world for good.

If you are a theological teacher, imagine how your ministry might be multiplied by giving a week or two teaching in a needy country of the world.

Variety of Opportunities

Do continue to peruse the recent postings for the many and varied opportunities for service.

Two new requests have arrived:

South India
A request has come in with quite some detail but is best described as a visit of encouragement with many opportunities for church leadership (including pastors) training seminars.

Uganda
Again, another visit of encouragement with a specific emphasis of ministry among children, young people and widows.

I would love to hear of people who are facing an upcoming window of opportunity and are considering some voluntary service in another country for a week or the best part of a semester.

Bubbling Along

Wow, things are bubbling along with Theologians Without Borders:

* One Aussie guy has just finished a two month assignment teaching an OT course in N E India (he is a pastor—what a great way to use part of your sabbatical).

* An American seminary student is currently engaged in a two week visit of encouragement to church leaders and members in South India.

* A seminary teacher has offered to teach a course in Christian Education and we are looking on the African continent for an appropriate opportunity.

* A seminary in Sri Lanka is still needing a teacher or two for a 10 day intensive in November—Hermeneutics or the Synoptic Gospels.

* I am looking for a trainer in some basic areas of Christian leadership for a one week course in Orissa (preferably between November and December but times are flexible).

* There are several pastors and teachers who have submitted their completed ‘Expression of Interest’ (see below) and we are awaiting the right opportunity.

* Many teachers are requested for one week assignments in China.

* Would you be able to spare one or two weeks next year to teach in West Africa (Liberia, Sierra Leone) with some leaders in a mobile theological school? I have several dates and subjects.

These are a sample of the requests and offers. Do get in touch with me about more details.
