Cross Cultural Ministry

The women of South have a passion for serving women cross-culturally. 

Each year we send a group of women to encourage and facilitate biblical training of other women in other countries.

How will our team serve our ministry partners?
Biblical Training of Women: In most places in the developing world there are very few opportunities for individuals to receive the training they need to be effective, biblical leaders. This is doubly true when it comes to women in a society where they are oppressed on many levels. Our partners see a great need for women to be trained biblically so they can minister effectively in their communities.

It is essential for women to be trained so they can lead other women and children to live out the Gospel on a day-to-day basis as well as help them grow in their knowledge of God and His Word. Every Christian needs to have a good understanding of sound doctrine so they will be able to teach the Bible (Tit. 1:9). How exciting to see our sisters in Christ hungry for the Word so they can rightly interpret and teach it to others (2 Tim. 2:15).

We see our ministry to women as an extension of the ministry which is facilitated by national pastors/partners. We have had the honor of participating in women’s conferences where team members facilitate activities and teach seminars on topics which the local ministry pastor requests. The role of these team members is to train and equip and encourage women to return to their villages where they lead Bible studies, children’s programs, jail ministry, micro-business groups, red-light ministries, and counseling/support groups.

Can I join the team?
There are several types of cross-cultural ministry teams sent out from South Church. Each team has different emphases and goals, including an introduction to global missions (Mexico Team), work project teams, and specialized training teams.

This women’s Cross-Cultural Ministry Team is a ‘specialized training team’ focused on Biblical training. It is made up of 4-8 women. Two or three core members will be included on each team with the remaining team openings being filled after an interview process. A high priority is placed on applicants who are experienced in teaching and mentoring. Consideration of cultural adaptability, current ministry with women and/or children, special skills, and much, much prayer will be a part of the process.

Future teams will be serving in Romania (’24); South Asia (’25); East Asia (’25). If you would like more information on being a part of women serving women cross-culturally, please contact us HERE.
