Could you join a team working alongside the local church to reach out to African migrants?
Malta has a population of half a million people and is strategically placed in the Mediterranean Sea astride the shipping lanes between Europe, Africa and Asia. With the increasing presuure of economic migrants and refugees coming from Africa to Europe, Malta has unique challenges and opportunities. There is freedom of religion in Malta which is predominantly Catholic.
Vision and Strategy
We desire to partner with local ministries to see unreached Africans and other unreached people groups become disciples of Jesus and the to gather together with others in small reproducing discovery groups and house churches. We believe our work will be accomplished when there are reproducing disciples gathering among all the African unreached people groups in the region. We recognize we can’t isolate Africans from the multi-cultural metropolitan areas in Europe and so understand that our efforts will reach beyond Africans.
Ministry and type of work
We work alongside the Evangelical Baptist Church, Malta, reaching out to migrants from Africa. We value holistic approach to ministry that demonstrates the compassion of Christ, serving the practical needs of the underserved while also effectively making new disciples of family units who in turn are winning their extended families and neighbourhoods. We desire to help local ministries expand their reach and effectiveness by mobilizing and placing both long term workers and short-term teams. We will work with local, believing Africans of the diaspora to mobilize them to mission.
