Join a team working with the Rendille people in northern Kenya. Provide additional resource requested by the local church to help them multiply their mobilisation and outreach work to unreached people groups in the region.
The Rendille people are on the cusp of being taken off the list of unreached people groups. They are a nomadic people who live in a harsh and demanding area of northern Kenya. However, the church in Korr is growing in size and strength and is spreading out from Korr into the desert of northern Kenya. We are looking for someone to come alongside the church with skills to enable that people movement among the Rendille.
Ministry and type of work
You will learn from the local church how to do outreach and mobilisation in a remote, semi-nomadic tribe. They are very keen to do this work but have asked for help with personnel and resources.
Mostly during the week, you will participate with the church using whatever skils you have, this could be anything from building, to childrens work, youth groups, sports ministry. There are nearly unlimited opportunities here for someone who is a self starter and willing to get fully involved.
At the weekends you will join the outreach team or evangelist as they travel to remote villages. This will often require overnighting so you must be willing to camp or sleep in a makeshift home.
Experience and Qualifications
We are looking for people who:
- Have qualifications higher than high school level for immigration purposes
- Have some Bible training (desirable)
- Are willing to visit local people where they are
- Work with their own hands
- Are creative in finding work-around solutions to problems
- Are Team players
- Are patient, flexible, willing to learn, willing to take initiative in gospel witness and outreach,
- Teachable in learning cultural and local customs, and language
We are looking for people to come and work at being a “belonger” in the community, and for someone who will pursue strong relationships with the Rendille and be able to develop a kinship with that society.
