Volunteer Short Term Third Angle
Volunteer and Make a Difference
There are several ways to contribute to Global Gates mission of spreading the word of Christ, please read through the following volunteer opportunities and find which one is right for you and your situation.
We are very excited about the Sifting Weeks we have planned! We would love for you to join us! During these volunteer weeks we will find people of peace and begin an evangelism/discipleship relationship with them.
If you are planning on coming and bringing a team, please let us know ASAP which week you are coming and how many people will come, so that we can plan accordingly. We are already praying that God will do amazing things through these weeks and that unreached peoples will come to know Christ!
Volunteers will come to New York and be trained in meeting people on the street, sharing their testimony and the gospel with them, and being able to tell if the person is a person of peace. This is a very strategic role that you will play as we sift through many people in the city to find those the Holy Spirit is at work in. These ‘Sifting Weeks’ are very strategic as we seek to bring the gospel to South Asian peoples here in the city.
Commute to an unreached enclave in the NYC Metro and spend time seeking out Arabs and other Muslims whom God is beckoning to Himself among numerous, ethnic shops and restaurants. Learn about Muslim Americans and how to better share the good news of Jesus Christ with them. Distribute Christian films and literature to disseminate the Gospel throughout these unreached, isolated communities, and help us find persons of peace. Join us in prayer as we entreat the Lord to bring salvation to these peoples.
on the streets of Harlem and the Bronx. Volunteers will set up tables and/or walk the major streets of Harlem/Bronx and distribute Bible stories on CD, Jesus Film DVDs, and literature in native African languages. West African Muslims love to hear the Words of God, and the interaction on the streets provides a great opportunity to share the gospel and develop new relationships. Volunteers will need to have a strong emphasis on praying for the people around them, and will also be encouraged to prayerwalk around the neighborhood and interact with Africans in their stores, restaurants, etc…..all in the heart of North America’s “Little Africa.”
Be a representative of Jesus among Least Reached Groups in the San Francisco Bay Area. Working in California provides a great opportunity for a cross- cultural experience. While the events of a trip would depend somewhat on the giftedness of the team, below is a list of where short-term partners are needed:
• Serve with and alongside cross-cultural communities (such as Afghans and Yemenis)
• Practice in sharing the gospel cross-culturally with least reached communities
• Engaging communities through prayer walking
Help us saturate Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist areas of the city with gospel literature. Some will come to NYC to hand out materials. Others can mobilize their churches back home to do a mail saturation campaign, as we seek to get truth into the homes. Each piece of literature will have a contact number where seekers can reach field personnel.
Become an Unreached Peoples Prayer Coordinator in your city. Mobilize Christians in your city and beyond to pray for unreached peoples located in your city by disseminating information and resources, leading prayer groups, and starting initiatives to focus more prayer on the unreached.
Many of the needs we have in reaching unreached peoples in Metro New York and elsewhere can be met remotely! We need people to help with the following on an as needed basis from their own home or church:
• Web design
• Web management
• Graphic design
• Duplicating CDs and DVDs of gospel resources
• Administrative-type work
