How To Get Involved

“I believe that the great tragedy of the church is not that rich Christians do not care about the poor, but that they do not know the poor. Yet if we are called to live the new community for which Christ was crucified, we cannot remain strangers to one another. Jesus demands that we live in a very different way.” (Shane Claiborne) 

Over the past two years, new Servants teams have formed to live and minister in the slums of Jakarta (Indonesia) and Yangon (Myanmar/Burma).  We are currently receiving applications for those teams as well as two teams in major Indian cities.  Read more about these on the country pages and contact us to receive an info pack on any of these opportunities.

We are also exploring the possibility of new teams for Bangkok (Thailand), Dhaka (Bangladesh) and China. If you are interested in being part of a pioneering team, or possibly leading one, let us know.

Servants is a faith mission and all workers raise their financial support from their local churches and friends. There are no paid jobs but opportunities to minister amongst the urban poor are limitless. Perhaps more important than the job skills themselves, are the character attributes you bring to the field, such as:

  • Strong Relationship with God: Your ministry flows out of your close relationship with God.
  • Adaptable: You are able to function in a variety of contexts with a variety of people.
  • Humble: You are open to other ways of doing things different to those you may have learnt
  • Teachable: You are able to learn how things are done in context before suggesting other ways.
  • Hardy: You are able to survive in often uncomfortably hot temperatures, lots of noise etc.
  • Sacrificial: You are willing to set your agenda, hopes and goals aside for the sake of others.
  • Confident: You are able to survive and get things done without close supervision.
