Assistant Business Manager

Administrative support affects all other areas of ministry within the mission. When it is lacking because of home assignments or other absences, other ministries suffer. SIM Senegal is currently praying for sufficient administrative backup to provide continuity during some upcoming home assignments.

Dentist Evangelist

What do you do when you have a toothache? How convenient it is to have a dentist handy! What do you think the villagers in the Kaffrine region do when they have a toothache? Most opt to tough it out. When it gets absolutely too painful to stand, most choose to go to the witchdoctor seeking relief. He may heat a knife blade on hot coals and apply the side of the knife to the patient's wrist to cure their tooth pain! A few will decide to travel over the dirt roads into the town of Kaffrine if they have enough money to buy a ticket at the regional hospital.

French-Speaking Teacher of French and Introduction to Computers

Kaffrine is the region of Senegal with the worst rate of secondary school attendance. Only 6% of the population attends secondary school! And only 3% of the population ever attends university. Our SIM Kaffrine team has already made a difference through the scholarship project. We have seen young people baptised and growing spiritually, passing their exams, and going off to university. This encourages us, and we see a great opportunity to help more students.

Church Planting and Evangelism

In a country that is wide open for you to share the good news with those who have never heard, Thiès is very strategic as it is the second largest city in Senegal and growing fast. It is ethnically mixed, but most are Wolof speakers. Wolof is spoken in the markets and in most of the homes. When considering urban settings, it is the most needy in Senegal. Can you come and help? Innovative thinking is needed and a willingness to try new things.

Church Planting and Evangelism--Kaffrine

In a country that is wide open for you to share the good news with those who have never heard, Kaffrine has to be the most exciting opportunity. One Senegalese pastor stated after observing the work in Kaffrine, "I can't believe what I'm seeing here. Here are Wolof people, sitting and studying God's Word!" There are villages requesting people to come and tell the stories from the Scriptures, but there are not enough missionaries available to tell them. Can you come and help?

Support and Administrative Staff for Bourofaye Christian School (BCS)

Missionary Kids' education is one of the greatest challenges in placing missionaries worldwide. Bourofaye Christian School is the only boarding school in Senegal which offers the possibility of boarding/educating elementary school children. In the past, this school has enabled several SIM families to work in rural areas reaching out to the Wolof people by educating and caring for their children. The school is run by WEC and is located in a rural area which is 30 km from Thiès and 200 km from Kaffrine.

Ministry Vision
Our team's vision is to glorify God in Senegal by proclaiming the Gospel; planting, strengthening, and partnering with churches as we:

  • evangelize the unreached and disciple believers into churches
  • minister to human need
  • equip churches to fulfil Christ's commission

Our Wolof Church-Planting team shares the vision to establish mature Wolof-speaking churches in both rural and urban areas where the Lord leads us as a team.
