Have you ever wondered how your degree or skills could be used for Kingdom work?
Whether you have skills in programming or visual arts, Indigitous Serve wants to bridge your skills with the needs of ministries in global missions. In our cohorts from the past year, we’ve learned how young adults and students are eager to serve in missions with their skills. Many have wondered how to best use their talents for God, in some ways, even giving the best they have to offer beyond tithes and offerings.
Hear from one of our recent interns about his experience answering that exact question!
“The biggest thing I learned is that you don’t have to be in vocational ministry to be in the Lord’s service. I often fell into the trap of believing that my skillset couldn’t be used for the glory of the kingdom. I thought that my skillset was somehow less valuable because it didn’t lend itself to on-the-ground, frontline mission work. To put it bluntly, I felt bad that I was a desk jockey by trade. Now, however, I don’t feel that way so much. The fall cohort provided an opportunity for me to use the talents God has granted me for the purpose of mission work. “– 2021 Intern Cohort Member
“This cohort has been such an enlightening experience for me. I realized how we can combine faith, technology, and missions all together and be extremely helpful to people groups all over the world. My faith and relationship with God have been personal and community based. This cohort helped me figure out that I can expand to a global level and help missionaries with my own individual abilities. When I began studying Software Engineering in college, I never even thought of the possibility of using coding and mobile app development to help spread God’s word. The most important thing I learned about Missions was the power and importance of collaboration. I was not familiar with the culture that we would be working with, but the field team provided us with lots of useful information and feedback. We were able to create something that was specifically designed for the group of people that we were catering to. I would recommend a digital mission like this for anyone that wants to work in the tech space while also being faithful to God’s word. The Great Commission in Matthew 28 tells us, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. A digital mission is the perfect embodiment of The Great Commission. You can contribute to meaningful missions that touch all corners of the world with your unique skillset while working from your own personal space.”-2021 Intern Cohort Member
If these stories haven’t helped you understand the intersection of your skills and ministry, what about what this mentor had to say?
“It was so incredible to see these young technologists engaging with a least reached people group. We were blessed to have them come alongside us in this work. Sometimes in work among unreached peoples, you can feel a bit alone, and having a group come in with fresh ideas and skills is very life-giving. The interns were all skilled and hard-working, and accomplished so much more than I had imagined! I look forward to seeing what they go on to build in the future!”– Jay, 2021 Intern Cohort Mentor
