Want to be a missionary, but don’t think you’re qualified?
When you think of missions, do you think you have to be a pastor or doctor to qualify? God can take any talent you have and use it on the mission field! Consider some of the following needs:
Artists- Needed to share the Gospel in oral cultures through creative expression. Paint the Gospel. Dance the Gospel. Storytelling. Weaving. Singing. Photography. (Too wide a field for a link. Search for your respective art form. I’ll help if you need it!)
Tech– Web design. System setup. Translation software. Social media Outreach.
Sign Language– Signing communities all over the world are in need of the Gospel. If you already know one of the world’s sign languages, you are that much more prepared to reach the lost for Christ in another one. Just like spoken language groups, deaf and hard of hearing people groups respond to the Gospel much better when it is presented to them in their heart language.
Teaching– Teach missionaries’ kids. Teach students. Teach English. Teach knitting. Teach business skills.
Christian Counseling– Hurt is universal. Unreached people need counseling. New Christians abandoned by their families need counseling. Missionaries need counseling.
Business– Christian ethics in businesses abroad are hard to come by. New Christians may be outcast by their peers if they want to spend time away from work to love their family/church. Christian businessmen demonstrating Biblical leadership and values are highly needed.
Christmas- Do you love Christmas as much as Buddy the Elf? Many countries see Christmas in movies and try to celebrate it but have no idea Who it is about. Come throw a party to explain the true meaning of Christmas to people who are curious. (We’d love you to come visit us in a few years!)
Eco-Missions– Care about the environment? Christians should! Reforestation, Disaster Response, Aquaponics, and Clean Water projects are in need of agriculture, engineering, and eco-science missionaries.
