SIM Workers
More than 1,600 SIM workers serve in a variety of careers in more than 50 countries. SIM workers themselves come from dozens of nations and ethnicities which historically did not send missionaries, but today send tens of thousands through emerging mission movements outside of the West. SIM is honored that God has called hundreds of these to serve with us. We invite you to visit these pages and meet some of our workers who bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world with great courage, sacrifice, and joy.
