86 per cent of people without the gospel have no Christian witness and while many organisations send workers and resources to areas where there is already a church established, Serving In Mission wants the gospel to reach every tongue, tribe and nation.
The Faithful Witness scheme was launched in February 2019 to introduce the gospel strategically to communities living and dying without hearing of Jesus.
Through Faithful Witness, SIM works with partner organisations and recruits from churches across the globe, to share the good news in difficult places and where there is little or no Christian witness.
The teams are multicultural, multi-ethnic and multi-skilled with a desired for two or more workers on each team to come from the country in which they are serving.
“For people who have been hoping and praying for workers, we have workers on their way,” says SIM International Director Joshua Bogunjoko.

Pray for pioneering teams
Through its Faithful Witness initiative, SIM brings together multicultural workers to share the good news of Jesus in difficult places — from the quickly-developing city, to the remote mountain village — places that are challenging for gospel outreach and, sometimes, even hostile toward Christianity and missionaries.
Each team is includes 10-12 workers from at least three different continents. This is key; when multi-ethnic mission workers are united in ministry, it is evident that Christianity doesn’t belong to just one culture but is available to everyone.
Faithful Witness teams are developing in the following 8 locations: Asia, Chad, East Asia, Mali, the Middle East, Nigeria, North Africa and Thailand. We pray people will get involved by:
- Praying for a least-reached community and team.
- Sharing with their church or community.
- Supporting a Faithful Witness worker.
- Serving on a Faithful Witness team.
