Area Encourager Asia

In many countries, the need for churches and worshipping groups far exceeds the number of available churches and trained pastors. One Mission Society utilizes a discipleship tool called Train and Multiply (T&M) to equip pastors and lay leaders to plant and multiply worshipping groups and disciples. In this role, you'll encourage and assist local pastors as they equip lay leaders in church multiplication. Through this role, you'll increase the number of pastors and churches engaged in outreach, discipleship, church planting, and equipping and releasing lay people for ministry so that a growing number of individuals can know and follow Christ.
