Country & Ministry Profile

SIM Australia strives to follow Jesus and faithfully accomplish the new things He is calling us to do. We continue to be more integrated across all departments to effectively and efficiently facilitate more people, prayer, and funds for global mission.

We continue to pray for more workers for our priority countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh, China, Thailand, Niger, Burkina Faso, Benin, South Sudan, Zimbabwe, and Bolivia. Most of these countries have few workers in comparison to the vast numbers of people and communities without access to the gospel and who face huge challenges.

University student ministry

With more than 25 percent of university students (total 1.3 million enrolled) coming from overseas, Australia has the highest concentration of international students in the world. A notable trend is that foreign students are proving more responsive to the gospel than Australians. Praise God for this open door, but pray:

  • Australians might also be reached during this crucial phase of their lives.
  • More overseas students to know and follow Christ and to return to their birth country as Christ's witnesses.
  • A greater evangelistic zeal among Christian university students.
  • Additional missionaries.

The State Religion

Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus: More than 1.4 million Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus live in Australia. Pray for churches and Christians to overcome fears and prejudice and share the gospel effectively.
