SEND’s Ministry
Our vision for Vietnam is to make disciples among the majority and minority peoples through the engagement of strategic partnerships. This vision can be fulfilled when there are movements of disciples who gather and reproduce. Our strategy is to first engage the majority Vietnamese people, the Kinh, with a strong network of local and international partners. This majority people make up 90% of Vietnam's population but only 1.4% are evangelical Christians. Without a strong and reproducing Vietnamese Kinh church, the task of reaching other unreached people in Vietnam is compounded.

In addition to this large task, we desire to start a parallel work among one of the 68 unreached people groups in Vietnam. These unreached people groups are a combination of Buddhist and ethnic religions. Our multinational team will partner with like-minded organizations and minister through education, development, and transformational business.
Spiritual Climate
Vietnam is officially a communist, atheist nation. However, about two-thirds of the population practices Buddhism and ethnic religions. There is a very small contingent of evangelical Christians and churches, mostly in southern Vietnam, but they are regularly oppressed and persecuted. There has been a mission presence and a fully translated Bible for almost 100 years, and the church continues to grow despite its suffering.
Team Goals
  • Communicate a culturally relevant, biblical message to a majority people who lead and influence the nation.
  • Rescue the displaced and marginalized community who are homeless, cheated, or in danger of being trafficked and enslaved.
  • Relieve - provide assistance to the displaced and marginalized community who are suffering, deprived, or sick.
  • Restore - the traumatized with the displaced and marginalized community to holistic, physical, mental, and spiritual health.
  • Rehabilitate - the displaced and marginalized community who need education, livelihood skills, social life, and dignity.

Life in Vietnam looks like:

  • Learning the local language and practicing with neighbors, friends, and as you shop for food in the market.
  • Partnering with like-minded NGOs and being part of a cross-organizational, multicultural team.
  • Using your God-given gifts, abilities, and skills to share the message and hope of Jesus in everyday life.
  • Living in a large modern urban context with impoverished communities woven into the environment.

Would you be a good fit for this new team?

To thrive in Vietnam, you will need:

  • A close, daily walk with Jesus.
  • A pioneering spirit and a love to bring hope to both urban and marginalized peoples.
  • Passion in your love for the Vietnamese and a commitment to the work of making disciples.
  • Excitement about partnering with a network of other organizations.
