Making the Gospel Local
SIM’s focus is to equip and send out cross-cultural mission workers globally. In Australia, there is a growing number of communities who have never heard the Gospel and are living amongst us today. To faithfully reach the least-reached in our own backyard, SIM Australia has developed a local ministry called Across.
Across facilitates mission workers within Australia to reach communities that are yet to hear the Gospel, such as migrants, refugees and university students.
“Across is focused on supporting Christian diaspora and cross-cultural workers to reach out to different unreached ethnic communities living in Australia.”
– Alan Millhouse, Across Ministries Lead
The strategy of Across is to enable workers who share backgrounds similar to the communities the church is trying to reach, so that language and cultural barriers can be easily overcome. Through Across, SIM supports and partners with local churches as they implement ministries to reach out cross-culturally in their communities. This helps Christians engage with migrants in various settings, including universities, counselling and sports.
