This effort is to develop a strategy for mobilizing minority ethnic groups in the USA for mission engagement with SIM. The focus ethnic groups would be African-American, Hispanic and Asian. This is in line with the Malaysia Initiative under the area of Focused Mobilization in that the minority ethnic churches in the US are currently under-represented in SIM. They represent a tremendous Christian force with unique strengths that could be mobilized to make disciples where Christ is not known.
This ministry fits under the objective of enabling anyone to serve regardless of where they come from or where they are sent to serve. If successful it will also add a vital dimension to SIM's multi-cultural identity.
Please pray for leadership in each area and for strategic relationships with key church and mission leaders within each ethnic group.
