Missions for Everyone - 3 March 2018
3 March 2018, 2pm - 5pm
Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church, 77 Prinsep Street (S188649)
Q: Did God call you to serve Him in missions?
A: Umm... I don't think so. I am just a regular office-worker and am not theologically trained.
Is God's mission only for preachers or pastors?
When we mention the term 'missionary', most people will think of the image of a westerner dressed in Asian clothing, holding a Bible and preaching from town to town. This is probably because of inspiring stories of spiritual giants such as Hudson Taylor and William Carey. The fact is, not all missionaries are preachers. Educators, artists, IT professionals, accountants, and people with different skills are much needed in the mission field for the purpose of advancing God's Kingdom. Your God-given talents are a much needed part of the work of missions!
To find out how, join us for the Missions for Everyone event on the 3rd of March, 2pm - 5pm @ Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church where you will have the opportunity to hear the first-hand experience of missionaries who serve God with their diverse skills and backgrounds. You will also hear of openings for these positions in Asia.

Today, many people in the world still need the Bible in their language. You don’t have to be a linguist or translator, if you have an interest in languages, we want to speak to you!
Literacy & Education Specialists
At Wycliffe, artists work alongside communities to spark the creation of artistic works that communicate God’s message and transform lives in powerful ways.
All projects need people to provide essential support functions. One of our greatest needs is for people with management, administration and other professional skills.
