The Himalayan region is the home of hundreds of Tibetan Buddhist people groups, hardy folk that are able to eke out a living under difficult conditions. Few of these peoples have a significant Christian witness. However, we believe that once the Tibetan people are reached, the other people groups will soon follow! They can have an amazing multiplying impact around the world, including on the Western world, where Buddhism has started to make inroads.
Our team based in the Himalayas has a vision is to ignite church planting movements among the Tibetan Buddhist peoples. Our activities include personal evangelism, a house of prayer, a children’s ministry center, video production, language classes and outreaches to remote areas.
Reaching these peoples with the good news of Jesus requires dedication and patience. A breakthrough in this area will require a few elements: prayer that the Lord will soften the hearts of these peoples; information about the location, numbers, languages and needs of these peoples; and workers that are prepared to present the gospel patiently and faithfully.
The Upper Room House of Prayer aims to be a part of a global prayer movement towards these ends. Goers in this position will be part of a small team that will stand in the gap for the Tibetan Buddhist peoples in general and the Tibetan peoples in particular. The team will mobilize intercessors across the world to pray for these peoples.
The Intercessor will present passionate, regular prayers for the Tibetan and Tibetan Buddhist peoples. The Intercessor will also lead various intercession events. These events will be both virtual (for example Zoom) and face-to-face. Examples of such events include prayer walks, 24-hour prayer watches, days of fasting and times of prayer for workers. We pray for Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the harvest field. (Matthew 9:37, 38)
The Intercessor will promote prayer for Tibetan Buddhist peoples among their direct network and through social media networks. And, the Intercessor will study the Tibetan language and actively take part in personal evangelism of Tibetans.
This position is based in a beautiful hill station on the edge of the Himalayas. Most of the work will be done in the hill station but there will be opportunities to go out on outreaches into the Himalayas.
A passion for prayer and for mobilizing others to prayer.
