Outreach and church planting, Medical ministries, Agriculture and development, Youth Ministry
Serve as part of an ongoing outreach team serving among the Jie people, a clan of the Karimojong people, in northern Uganda. AIM is seeking men and women who are willing to come as learners, work with the local church, live incarnationally, build genuine relationships, reach out into the rural communities and passionately share the good news of Christ with the people of this region.
Professional skills in church work, medicine, agriculture, education or mechanics are welcome but not essential. Individuals, couples and families are welcome. We welcome any members whether longer-term (2yrs+) or longer short term (approximately 12 months) from October 2019.
The first six months of any assignment would be spent doing language and culture learning, as well as building friendships in the local community before starting formal ministry. A particular focus will be to help the church reach out into the rural manyattas where the majority of the Jie live.
Although the team in Kotido is split across two sites they regularly come together for prayer and fellowship, with potential for more frequent Bible study and prayer in each locale.
