Church planting in Thailand needs to be done in a contextualized and reproducible way. Our strategy focuses on starting small groups with the goal of seeing an indigenously led and sustained church planting movement. This church planting team, partnering with other organizations, will be working with the Isaan people who are 99% Buddhist. The region occupies almost 1/3 of the land area of Thailand. It is home to 21 million people but 17 million of them have no access to a church. Team leaders will develop and lead multinational, church-planting teams in districts of Northeast Thailand. They will engage a Buddhist people group through various services and start home groups while training national leaders to take responsibility. Thailand, Buddhist Ministry, Teaching English
