FRONTIER MISSION WORK
What role can African organizations like iServe Africa play in the global mission? What strategic resources do they bring on board and what partnerships do they need with more established global players.
As known from old missionaries go into a community to teach about Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. Missionary work depends on where the individual or group of missionaries are going (international or local communities). At the very least, a missionary’s first responsibility is to God, then to his or her church or mission’s agency.
iServe Africa has been involved in sending apprentices for many years. We have sent apprentices to many unreached areas of Kenya: Marsabit, Samburu, Moyale, Sololo, Moyale, Muranga, Voi and Kilifi; and internationally to north western Uganda, England, Scotland, Ireland.. Few of these workers have been labelled missionaries but the work they have been doing corresponds perfectly with cross-cultural evangelistic ministry.
Through the years we have seen many coming back to us and thinking that we need to extend our Gospel spread engagement for ore than two years. This has then informed the many years of planning and waiting for the inception of a Missions’ Department. We did constitute this in Sept 2021 and now the department is hot on its heel to see the nations evangelized.
This department will call those who are willing to give up their lives to go and reach the unreached, and iServe will act as a mission’s facilitator, enabling those willing to go to partner with those willing to send and pray. iServe will provide specific pastoral care that churches are often ill equipped to provide, such as pastoral visits, orientations and pre-deployment training in order to set up the missionaries for long term gospel proclamation.
