Organization Description: 

Introduction to International Ministries

Greetings and welcome! We?re glad you are considering being a part of the global mission work of International Ministries through volunteer missionary service. We are eager for you to get to know us, and we?d like to be of service to you. Created by American Baptists, International Ministries (IM) is part of a worldwide mission movement. Our calling is to glorify God in all the earth by crossing cultural boundaries to make disciples of Jesus Christ. We fulfill this calling by working hand in hand with national churches around the world. God is doing new things in mission today, and we are excited to be a part of it. Come, glorify the Lord with us and let us exalt His name together!

Who we are.

International Ministries is a group of Jesus? followers. We bring joy to God?s heart by crossing the boundaries between human groups, to help people meet Jesus and develop a transforming relationship with Him. We serve with sisters and brothers from over 170 partner organizations and churches, located in some 71 countries around the world.

Variety is the spice? of mission!

Jesus preached, but he also taught, healed, encouraged, confronted and even raised people from the dead! He touched the ?untouchable? people of his time and place. As we follow Jesus? example, God?s Spirit leads us into an amazing variety of ways to serve. We are pastors, evangelists, worship leaders and Bible teachers, of course. But we are also doctors and nurses, public health trainers, teachers, farmers, small business coaches, village development workers, conflict transformation trainers, and construction contractors. People serve with IM for anywhere from two weeks to a lifetime. In addition to those who ?go,? God leads many others to give, to pray and to inspire others to join in this mission movement.

Eternal message in an ever-changing world

God?s Spirit urges us to find ever-new ways to share God?s timeless love. Throughout our history, committed individuals and churches have continually stretched to respond to God?s leading and adapt our ways of doing mission to new realities. We have learned to serve under the leadership of national churches, and to recognize our own homeland is itself a mission field. We are honored and humbled to be stewards of a great tradition, one that continues to grow today!

God?s call? to all!

Jesus? command to share the Good News with people from every place and ethnic group is a mandate for all His followers. There are many ways to make a valuable contribution to Jesus? global mission including long term missionary service, being a prayer partner, being part of a Mission Partnership Network, and supporting the mission work financially. We are glad you are considering short-term volunteer missionary service through International Ministries. Thanks for your willingness to take part in this mission effort by being a volunteer in global mission!
