SEND’s Ministry
In spite of a century of Christian witness, response to the gospel has been slow. We are committed to partnering with the national church and like-minded missions to launch a church-planting movement. We seek to accomplish this through storying the gospel along relational lines, in a way that can be easily multiplied. We envision creative teams that include workers skilled in micro-business, teaching English, health care, and community development.
Spiritual Climate

The peoples of north and east Thailand are steeped in Theravada Buddhism, mixed with animistic practice and superstition. Our major focus is the Isaan, comprised of 18 million people on the northeastern plateau. Both friendly and hospitable, they remain proud of their culture and religion, and resistant to the gospel.

Team Goals
In the next five years, SEND Thailand will:
  • Seek to share a culturally relevant gospel through biblical storytelling.
  • Set in motion a movement that multiplies rapidly through ordinary people.
  • Serve Thais through micro-business, English classes and community development.
  • Focus on the cities and towns of the Isaan region.
Would you be a good fit for this team? 

We need people who are sold out to God and want to work in an area where the need is great and the people are unreached and not very responsive. You will need patience. And “sticktoitiveness." You have to be in it for the long haul.

You must be willing to serve behind the scenes so that Thai disciples can take the lead as soon as possible.

SEND Thailand and IJV ISAAN, our partner organization, are committed to working together, so we need team players who believe in strong communication and honesty. We also value innovation and creativity. You must be excited about working with people from different cultures and backgrounds, willing to be flexible and able to be sensitive to multicultural teaming.
