Thailand Ministry Opportunity
Christian Surfers Thailand has been an active ministry since 2011 and the team on the island of Phuket is seeking two people to join them as they continue to reach out to the local surf community and its families. There are five different surf communities on Phuket with only one of those currently being ministered to regularly. They need more people to help reach those other surf communities and help continue to build a Christian community there.
The current team on Phuket would benefit from having other people join them, who share the same heart in building sincere relationships with the Thai surf community. The community will then be able to see an example of how others use surfing to serve God as well as seeing an example of other Christians who love & follow Jesus. Our hope is that through your relationships and service the Thai surf community will have opportunity to hear the gospel of Jesus and have the chance to then follow him in community, empowering others to then do the same.
Christian Surfers Phuket currently serves the surf community in different ways such as vocational training & discipleship through a surf school, serving at local surf contests, community projects, Bible studies and kids school camps. Their main focus is on building genuine relationships so people can see God in their lives.
Christian Surfers Phuket is also connected with other local Christian Surfers ministries in other parts of Thailand and together they collaborate with joint projects throughout the year as they strive for the CS vision.
