Urban Student Outreach Staff

Located in the 10/40 window, Bangkok is an unreached megalopolis with less than 1% Evangelical Christians. Urban Bangkok has experienced tremendous change in the last decade, where students and young professionals have lacked a spiritual home. In addition, as a bustling hub of international diversity, God has brought many unreached people groups from surrounding countries to Thailand for education, work, or sanctuary. Normally difficult to reach due to political and geographical barriers, they are now in a land of religious freedom where they can hear the Gospel.

The Thai church is currently in an exciting time of growth, yet they are still an extremely small minority. As the local church mobilizes outward into the ripe fields nearby, Goers can encourage and empower their work. This placement is for someone who is passionate about college students and young professionals. They will participate in building relationships around spiritual conversations, initiate opportunities for community outreach on local university campuses or coffee shops, and help to develop and equip others to share and live out the Gospel.

In addition, Goers can also help “break the ground” in unengaged areas through prayer and building relationships. Goers will have the opportunity to travel up to four times a year to neighboring countries and other parts of Thailand for prayer and vision trips. The team prioritizes areas that are unengaged and unreached with the Gospel. We’re in need of self-starters willing to cross these challenging barriers of language, geography, and economic conditions to develop pathways for building relationships with people who have never heard the gospel.
