Praying together for: BMS World Mission

BMS works among some of the most marginalised and least evangelised people, in some of the most fragile places on earth. They aim to bring life in all its fullness through seven key ministries: church, development, education, health, justice, leadership and relief.

The seven ministries are: -

1. Church – Evangelism, church planting and supporting indigenous pastors.
2. Development – Helping people who would otherwise be ignored by their governments and the world by; building their own latrines to prevent diseases, training farmers, helping the marginalised by giving them micro-loans and business education and providing renewable energy in remote villages.
3. Education - running schools on the streets for children sleeping rough and training teachers to open futures of opportunity.
4. Health – Healing the sick, empowering those with disabilities, promoting wholeness, performing life-saving surgery in remote locations and giving medicine to the poor. Teaching communities about safe birthing and nutrition. Giving love and stimulation to children with disabilities and training doctors. Teaching mental health skills to counsellors for the traumatised.
5. Justice –Speaking out for the voiceless and challenging the powers of this dark world; freeing women from the oppression of sexual slavery, educating churches about gender based violence, campaigning against systemic injustices both here and abroad, advocate for widows dispossessed of land, teaching poor communities about their rights and about laws protecting children from abuse, helping to set the wrongly remanded and unjustly accused free, prison visits, providing Christian lawyers to help the vulnerable secure justice.
6. Leadership –Training and educating future pastors for ministry in countries hostile to the gospel, from secular societies to those under Sharia Law. Training church leaders on how to serve their communities both spiritually and practically.
7. Relief – Responding to disasters, investing in long-term recovery: helping people whose lives have been devastated by disaster – both natural and human-made, no matter what their caste, gender or religion.
