Are you interested in gaining experience in church planting and pastoral ministry? There is a church planting residency opportunity In Akron, Ohio with The Chapel. The following is a message and description from Deering Dyer, Director of New Campus Development:
The Chapel in Akron, Ohio has undertaken a capital campaign which raised nearly $4 million dollars to plant churches in northeast Ohio. We have named this church planting effort The Saturate Movement and our vision is to plant 10 churches in 10 years in the greater Akron area. To that end we are in a position to hire men who are gifted in church planting and pastoral ministry. I would love to talk to any of your graduates or recent alumni, who have a heart for church planting and making disciples, about our Saturate Movement Church Planting Residency.

Message from Macy (SEBTS Grad. 2016; currently serving as a Journeyman):
I’m serving as a Journeymen in Dakar, Senegal and I wanted to let y’all know about a Hands On request that we have on the books for the Spring of 2019. We’re looking for at least two Hands On students (guys for girls) to come and teach ESL at a center that we have here in the city. They would pretty much be working alongside of myself and my Journeyman partner. Even though we are working in a predominantly Muslim context we are able to openly share the gospel here, so in our classes we use both a curriculum and Bible stories to teach English. Through our work at the center, we’re able to gain access to the community and build relationships with students.
If anyone is interested but wants to talk to me to get more information, feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a link to the job request below; it doesn’t give a lot of information, so like I said I would be happy to talk more with whoever is interested! Thank you so much!
KidzJam is an after-school program that provides a safe space for kids to have fun and learn about God. They play games, make crafts, share a snack and an interactive bible story. Their desire is for every child to leave feeling seen after spending an afternoon at KidzJam.
The program meets on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:30 PM @ Casa De Luna (primarily hispanic community) and Wednesdays from 3:30-5:30 PM @ Raleigh Millbank Apartments. They specifically need students who are able to commit to serving every week or every other week - that way, they are ensuring a consistent presence in the communities.
Here is the link to the KidzJam website with more information on how to sign up to volunteer!
If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to Rachel over email at email@example.com.
Many American neighborhoods have fallen into years of decay. Houses have been abandoned, jobs are gone, and those left behind are often filled with disillusionment and a feeling of no hope.
We believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the hope of the world. We don’t want to just serve the poor, we want to make disciples of the poor. There’s a difference. As we seek to build healthy churches among the urban poor, we invite our partners to join us in the work.
THE NEED IS REAL
The average life expectancy in our neighbor is 65. That’s 14 years below the U.S. average and 19 years below the city’s wealthiest neighborhoods. 93.5% of children less than 18 year olds live in single-parent homes. 85% of children in come from low income families, only half will graduate high school. 60% of adults are unemployed and the median income is a mere $15,950.
GOSPEL-CENTERED CHURCHES CREATE REAL CHANGE
The greatest poverty we face is not the poverty food or cash, but a poverty of the Word. We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the one hope that can fully address the problem and change communities. We believe that building heathy, Gospel-centered churches in the nations poorest communities is the best strategy of promoting and creating real change.
WE NEED HELP
ONE HOPE is an urban missions ministry based out of The Garden Church in Baltimore, MD. While we’re currently on the ground in west Baltimore, ONE HOPE’s visions is broader than simply our church and neighborhood. We hope to plant and revitalize churches in the poorest urban communities.
As part of our work this summer, we are looking for two short-term missionaries. Missionaries will live in the community and be immersed in Gospel-centered, urban church ministry.

9 out of 10 Christians struggle to share Jesus with those far from God? Do you? If so join us as we identify and address some of the most common barriers that keep us from regularly sharing our faith. This will be an abbreviated training withe the "3 Circles Gospel Conversation Tool" and will equip attendees to engage those far from God in this community by going out with a partner. Attendees will grow more competent and confident to start and transition conversations, share their story, and share God’s story. This training prioritizes reaching those that the attendees already know who are far from but also trains them to engage new people and communities.The training will begin at 1pm sharp in the basement of Appleby Hall. This is a perfect opportunity for students to fulfill part of your course evangelism requirements.
