Chiang Mai

Nestled in the mountains of northern Thailand, the city of Chiang Mai is quickly developing into an influential voice to the rest of the country, and very open to the gospel. Less than 1% of Thai people know about the eternal and life-changing relationship Jesus offers us all.  Our outreaches and ministry in Northern Thailand will be in the city of Chiang Mai and among the hill tribes sharing the hope of the gospel. We have partnered with some powerful gospel-centered churches, ministries, and missionaries seeking to continue building worshipping, Gospel communities—one that impacts people’s everyday lives through relationships, home to home prayer and ministry, worship, church ministry, children's ministry, and orphanage outreaches, and more. We believe that the gospel can transform the lives of Thais in Chiang Mai, and through the many opportunities offered to share the gospel, we guarantee that lives will be changed and an eternal impact will be made. Northern Thailand is home to a number of ethnic minority groups known broadly as "the hill tribes," each of which maintains its own culture, language and dress. Political oppression and centuries-old cycles of poverty have left thousands of hill tribe children without parents, without education, and without hope...part of our mission trip takes us on an overnight village trip of a lifetime OmKoi!

Some ministry highlights/opportunities we'll have:

  • Ministering a skit and sharing worship in a traditional Thai church.

  • Visiting, praying for, and touring Zoe House (a home for children rescued from the human-trafficking world.

  • Visiting "Daughters of Ruth" Safe Home/Orphanage for young girls up to 18 who are at risk and who have a parent (or both parents) in prison.
