Financial Security

Financial Security

SIM tailors a budget for each missionary that includes set up costs, living expenses, ministry expenses, health cover, retirement savings and emergency contingencies; we monitor and review support plans on an annual basis to take into consideration changes in circumstances and exchange rates.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

we assign a mission mobiliser to each missionary who provides pastoral care and support throughout the whole missionary journey; our qualified Pastoral Care Coordinator and missionary Ministry Team are also on hand to support our missionaries.

Biblical-based Counselling

Biblical-based Counselling

SIM offers our missionaries biblically-based, professional, confidential counselling services by qualified counsellors should they need extra help working through a challenge, or resolving a conflict.

Crisis Management

Crisis Management

each SIM field office has contingency plans in place to help our missionaries stay safe, or be evacuated to another location or country in the event of civil unrest, medical emergency or other natural disaster.

What Makes Us Different

We prioritise Unreached People Groups in the 10-40 window to share the Gospel where Christ is least known. Right now we have strong ministries amongst unreached peoples in Burkina Faso, Niger, China, Bangladesh, India, Thailand, Peru and Nigeria, just to name a few! SIM Australia missionaries primarily serve in Africa and Asia, but we also have missionaries serving in South America and the Middle East.

We love multicultural teams and send missionaries of any nationality. SIM doesn’t just send missionaries from traditional Western sending-countries – we encourage churches in any country to send missionaries to serve in cross-cultural mission. Our missionaries, staff and partners represent a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds and this enriches our ministry. We’ve sent Peruvians to India, Indians to Bolivia, and Papuans to South Asia.

We value local partnerships – we partner closely with local churches, Bible colleges, schools and hospitals. The role of the missionary is to partner with local believers to carry out ministry side by side. We send missionaries to serve at the invitation of local Christian partners to offer the expertise and training they need to increase their effectiveness.
