Is your church interested in partnering to reaching the peoples of Viet Nam with the Gospel? Here are some initial steps / commitments. Contact us to discuss more.
PRAYER COMMITMENT: We would like the church to make a commitment to pray for the peoples of Viet Nam. Prayer is our greatest need in the work. We recommend that a minimum of a one year prayer commitment be made. Ideally, this commitment would be for an area more specific than Viet Nam as a whole but we can discuss narrowing your focus down once you get started. This could be a Bible study group/division/department or other group within the church. Action Step: Confirm if you feel this is something you can commit to and whether you will make this a church-wide promotion, or a smaller group adoption. Connect us with a point person who will be responsible for promoting this to the church or group so that we can communicate with them, introduce them to resources for prayer requests, etc.
PREPARATION COMMITMENT: As you are praying, we ask that the church (or subset) also make a commitment to learning about the peoples of Viet Nam and the work to reach them with the Gospel. We will help to this end. If the church is moved through your praying for Viet Nam to consider sending a short term team to Viet Nam there are additional steps we ask of you in preparation. One key area is that we ask for all teams in advance of traveling to Viet Nam is to individually prepare your personal salvation testimony and to directly share that testimony with a minimum of three lost people in the year prior to coming to Viet Nam. Regardless of what you might do while in Viet Nam, sharing the Gospel will be a primary part of the work. We don’t want this to be something new for you on your arrival. Action Step: Once you confirm that you want to move forward, we will discuss training needs for your church or team.
PARALLEL COMMITMENT: We recognize that God has called many people to be a part of the work of reaching the peoples of Viet Nam with the Gospel. While that is true, it does not necessarily mean that He has called all of us to work together in close partnership. Our mission is to glorify God by reaching all Vietnamese peoples with the Good News of Jesus Christ through the planting of indigenous rapidly multiplying churches. Working toward that mission may require a variety of focus areas but the mission remains the same. We are looking for partners who will make a parallel commitment to this same mission.
