South East Asia
Name: The Clarkson Family
South East Asia
Ministry Focus: Social Justice, Aid and Development
The Clarkson family have a heart to plant a sustainable and reproducing church family with a bias to serve the poor in Sparks City. They are specifically working into the heroin sub-culture of the population and run a home for “1st stager’s” who detox with them. The live-in programme includes lots of worship & praying through their pasts and then after a year or 2 they can help more regularly in their cafe, which acts as a base for much of what they do in the centre of time.
Name: S & T
Ministry Focus: Long and Short-term Friendship Building (Primarily amongst the poor) and Micro-Finance Projects
S & T’s goal in the Middle East is to introduce the Muslim majority to Jesus in a culturally appropriate way. They seek to encourage a simple, reproducible, sustainable church model in the home. Believers are 0.05% of the population so there is scope for every kind of approach and church growth model. For those living in the big cities church attendance may be feasible but the 50,000 villages and thousands of small towns have no dedicated building. S & T frequently travel outside the big city and believe that even as conspicuous foreigners there is much that can be achieved.
