Pastoral Vocational Intern – London, UK

The Vision

Serge UK’s philosophy and vision is to develop movements of churches amongst South Asians in and through the UK and in South Asia itself. This is a much-needed focus as 1/3 of the world’s unreached people groups are South Asian (about 1.54 billion people).

Serge UK desires:

1) to establish Reformed, grace-centered, mission-minded, and culturally-understandable churches. Serge UK is focused on church planting in areas that have been historically hard to reach or in under-resourced areas that the British church has invited us into.

2) to use London as a base to train and equip people for church planting among unreached people in South Asia (SA).

3) to facilitate and mobilize the sending of additional church planting teams among SA people groups (both in the UK, in SA, and elsewhere in the SA diaspora).
