Located in the 10/40 window, Bangkok is an unreached metropolis with less than 1% Evangelical Christians. Sadly, this international hub is also home to some of the biggest red-light districts in the world. The Thai church is currently in an exciting time of growth, yet they are still an extremely small minority. As the local church mobilizes outward into the ripe fields nearby, including the sex industry, cross-cultural workers can encourage and empower their efforts.
This placement is for female staff members whose main focus will be building relationships with Thais in the red-light districts. They will be supporting an existing Thai ministry, which could include going on regular bar outreaches, following up on contacts made with individuals in the bars, and participating and supporting the ministry’s aftercare efforts.
In addition to their service with a local ministry, Goers will have the opportunity to travel up to four times a year to neighboring countries and other parts of Thailand for prayer and vision trips. Thailand is surrounded by difficult-to-reach people groups, and on these trips, the team prioritizes areas that are unengaged and unreached with the Gospel. We’re in need of self-starters willing to cross these challenging barriers of language, geography, and economic conditions to develop pathways for building relationships with people who have never heard the gospel.
