International Church Pastor

Expat believers living and working abroad may very well be the next catalyst for God’s work among the nations. But they need you to equip them.

Big Picture

Our world is more transient and multi-cultural than it’s ever been. As millions of people (many of them Jesus-followers) leave their home countries to find work, they carry their faith with them … but often that’s all they do with it. Even though international churches are flourishing on every continent, their expat members often don’t have a vision for sharing their faith with the people and cultures around them. They have immediate relationships and influence through their jobs, but they don’t yet see their work as worship or their jobs as ministry.

Your profession. Your mission.

As the shepherd of an international church, you can cast the vision. Teach the global professionals in your city about God’s view of work, and help them see the potential for impact where God has placed them. They’re not outside of Jesus’ Great Commission at all — they’re at the very heart of it as they engage their unreached coworkers! With your leadership, they can go from internationals to international disciple-makers.

Are you asking these questions?

  • Should I consider an international church pastorate?
  • What makes international churches unique?
  • Will I receive a salary as an international church pastor?
