Opportunity

Church Planters

The Position

Do you have a gift for evangelism, a heart for missions work, and the desire to help new believers gather to become a church? If so, we have a desperate need for you to help underserved communities in St. Lucia.

As a Church Planter, you will:

  • Provide leadership and support to national servant-leaders who are ready to build a community to serve Christ
  • Build authentic relationships based on trust, respect and love for Christ
  • Suggest and lead activities that will encourage conversations about faith, and sow the seeds for evangelism and discipleship
  • Live an authentically Christian lifestyle by setting an excellent example for others in the community
  • Demonstrate patience and commitment to the mission, while having a heart filled with love for Christ and the people who serve Him
The Need

About 90 percent of people living in St. Lucia claim to be Christian. About two thirds of these Christians are Roman Catholic and one third are Protestant. Baptists make up only 2.2 percent of the population. St. Lucia claims religious freedom for all, but many of the island's 160,000 inhabitants are unsaved.

ABWE is dedicated to sharing the Gospel in St. Lucia. We are excited about the opportunities available here, but we need assistance in making these opportunities realities. With additional missionaries we can grow God’s kingdom, make churches more accessible, reinforce strong leadership, and continue to provide guidance to those who are spiritually hungry. The harvest in St. Lucia is abundant, but the laborers are few.

The Impact

Use your skills to help fulfill the Great Commission. As Christians, Jesus has called us to go and make disciples of all nations, and we believe that process isn’t completed until these disciples are gathered into a local community of believers: a church. Church planting is the heartbeat of evangelism, and it’s at the core of who we are at ABWE. It’s hard work, but for those called to the challenge, there is no greater reward on earth than watching a community of believers grow in their faith, and begin to understand their own role in the Great Commission.
