Servant Senders National Missionary program equips Mexican men already
involved in some kind of ministry. These men must have demonstrated that
they, by their actions, desire to serve the Lord and would do more if
education and training were provided.
With an average education level of 5th grade and a weekly wage of $50 to $80, it is impossible to do much more than support a family. For example: housing costs $30 to $50 per month for the land, (more if they have a house and did not build it themselves), $10 per month for water, $11 for a tank of gas to cook, and $15 for electricity. This doesn’t include food, bus fare, clothes, medical, and other normal living expenses. Those who are fortunate enough to have work leave at dawn to ride a bus for an hour or more, work eight to ten hours, and then have an hour or more ride home. The work is often six or even seven days a week, which leaves very little time for family, church, or ministry.
Servant Senders realizes that National Missionaries, when equipped, are far better at reaching their own people for the Lord Jesus. They already know the language, understand the culture; therefore, are able in a more authentic way to preach Jesus Christ. They understand the background of their people and the existing religious system. This understanding can be used as a starting point and can lead into teaching about a relationship with God and about His grace and mercy.
Three Year Program
Candidates are found in the different areas of town in which we do
outreach, through local churches, or by word-of-mouth from pastors with
whom we network and by ministries with whom we come along side.
The process begins with an application and
continues with references, followed by spending time with the candidate and his family. This process is covered in continued prayer.
Partnership occurs when an American church or individual agrees to support the student financially and prayerfully. The expectation is that the student be viewed as an extension of their church and as a missionary sent out by them.
Two or three churches can partner to support one student. Support is sent to Servant Senders and is given weekly.
Accountability is our part of the partnership. Servant Senders will monitor the student’s progress, coordinate their schedule, secure the teachers, and oversee their training.
The supporting church will be informed of the student’s development and needs.
The schedule is set by Servant Senders. Any changes or variance must be agreed upon by the directors of Servant Senders and teachers of the student.
Tuesday - Adult education
Wednesday & Friday - Work projects for different ministries, outreach with teams, teaching in a ministry, learning a trade to later support their ministry and learning how to serve.
Saturday – Evangelistic outreach and discipleship
Sunday - Day of worship, involvement in church
National missionary training is a 3 year program.
