Our team enters into fields where the unengaged & unreached live. You will be a part of a team that regularly shares their faith. On a daily basis you will be involved in the lives of Indonesians. You need to be comfortable going out & engaging people. You will be given training on how to proclaim the gospel news to Muslims, Animists and Catholics BUT you have to be willing to be intentional & talk with people. You will be making disciples & training others to do the same. You will be involved in prayer walking the areas where we have no work or new work. Asking questions of the locals for our research and taking pictures of them will also be needed. We would like you to make some prayer video’s to be used in our churches for prayer emphasis.

Field cost: $1754 plus roundtrip travel, required travel insurance, immunizations, passport & visa costs.
Spend your summer in frontline engagement thru prayer & evangelism. In our city, there are over 100 universities, providing many opportunities for college students from the US to engage Indonesian college students. However, evangelism engagement will not be limited to college students as the city affords many other opportunities to engage people on the streets. In partnership with local translators, the team will share in local coffee shops and cafes, in roadside food stalls, parks and other public places where people tend to gather throughout the province. Additionally, the team will spend time outside of the city, engaging people in local villages. Lastly, team members may also have opportunities to share testimonies and/or short devotional teachings in local churches located throughout the province. We are not looking for “experts” but rather people who are humbly willing to serve, willing to be learn, willing to faithfully proclaim the gospel and willing to intercede on behalf of those who are desperately lost in our province. Outside of evangelism & prayer walking, the team will have opportunities to partner with other local ministries, explore the province, learn about local history and culture and see many historical sites.

One million people. No believers. No churches. IT IS hard to do ministry, but it's a beautiful, tropical place to live. You will be using your interest, (hobbies) & eco/outdoor tourism to develop relationships to bridge the Good News. (Fishing, waterfall trekking, island hoping, snorkeling, fly fishing, sewing, cooking, and more.) It's not as easy as some other places but come be a FISHER OF MEN. Tight lines. Use your skills to become a fisher of men. Don't know how to fish for "fish" or "men"....???? No worries, we will teach you. There are no known believers in this target group. You will learn fishing, go hiking, and see the majestic island sights to gain access to a normally inaccessible people. Through this tourism avenue of a once a week planned trip, you will be travelling to places Christians have never gone. As you navigate new culture and new relationships through everyday life you will have opportunity to share the Good News.

Live in America? You were born to come here and share your life experience with those who dream to go there. Go backpacking in breathtaking mountains overlooking vast, white beaches and clear blue seas to find those who are open to a message they've never heard. While sipping delicious coffee, talk with intermediate English speakers everyday about the important topics that have changed your life. You will be given access based on where you were born and through sharing of culture, you can share the Greatest News. How will they hear unless someone tells them? Statistics in these areas say 99.9% are non-believers. Help spread seed of who is the Way, Truth and Life. Why should the birth country be a barrier to access the gospel?

This Nehemiah Team will help us extend our reach out into the province to encourage, equip, and mobilize churches to engage the UPGs around them. You will be paired up with two undergraduate students from the local Baptist seminary. They will be your language & cultural guides, helping you by translating and explaining cultural differences that will not be obvious to you. You will help them by modeling an intimate walk with the Lord coupled with boldness in sharing your faith to those you meet, especially those from a Muslim background. We expect they will have a tendency to want to minister to those within the church (and we support that!), but we want you to help them look outside the church to vast fields of lostness.

Field cost: $2114 plus roundtrip airfare, required travel insurance, immunizations, passport & visa costs
If you are a female who likes exploring urban life, going to social events, building relationships with those you meet, and sharing Jesus with Muslims then this would be the job for you. You will be a literal sociaLight who can shine the light of Jesus in a dark place that has never heard. You and your teammate will be living in a big coastal city and will go around to different city events, either at malls, convention halls, streets food “cities”, on the boardwalk, etc. and see who you can build relationships with and share Jesus with. The city has a booming social scene, which we have not been able to connect with yet, so you would be playing a vital role in getting into this world and making some of those connections, which could lead to potential follow-up opportunities. Your team would literally be exploring the city and seeing what there is to see, get involved in, and where to meet people.
