SOON Movement Global
Thailand is bound by complicated beliefs in mysticism and reincarnation as a result of the strong Buddhist influences that are engraved within their culture. Although their loyalty to the king becomes a challenge for us sharing the Gospel, the people are very open and hospitable.
We have witnessed much fruit through our partnership with the ministry in Thailand, and through the students we met during our mission projects. The field of souls in Thailand is ripe; now is the time for great sowing and harvesting in this nation.
Walk literally in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul. Have the Bible come to life as you go back to where Christianity all started. Unravel pre-conceived mis-conceptions of Islam as you engage with top-tier students in the Middle East.
The shifting, volatile environment in this nation points towards a crucial window to reach thousands. The students are friendly and look forward to share life with you. Discuss, play, drink a lot of tea as you do life together.
War. Communism. A heaping bowl of noodles. Perhaps these are the things that first come to mind when you first think of SEA. But, in recent years, the country has grown through open doors and economic reforms. General stability within the country has risen as the country has strayed from its stringent Communist ideals.
Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism have strongly influenced the religious and cultural life of the people. About 85% of the people from SEA identify with Buddhism, though not all practice on a regular basis. Although the people of SEA are familiar with Christianity because of the country’s ties with the Western world, only about 8% of the population call themselves Christians.
Friendly students await conversations. Come and experience the Holy Spirit as He arranges divine appointments with various students.
You don’t need a wagon to be a pioneer.Join SOON Movement in pioneering a new campus ministry in a city in America.
Chicago is a world-class city of 3 million people, and contains people from every country of the world in its 77 different communities. Because of the many different cultural groups, the opportunities for exploration and for ministry are endless. During the summer you will get a chance to spend time ministering in various communities and among various ethnic groups in the city. You will grow in your ability to relate cross-culturally as you spend time interacting with people of all different cultures: Whites, Latinos, African-Americans, and Asian-Americans.
You will have the opportunity to share your faith each week in a variety of settings. One week may be in a Summer Day Camp for African-American children. The next week you may be lending a helping hand in a homeless shelter. The next week you may be helping to run a sports clinic in a Mexican-American community. Many of the ministries will focus on helping to raise up a new generation of godly young leaders in their neighborhood. This summer mission is in partnership with CRU inner-city.
