Thailand : Christian Resource Developer (OMF)


TEAM is partnering with OMF International in Thailand. OMF’s growing ministries in east Asia include everything from church planting, youth outreach, and medical ministries to teaching and working among minority people groups.

A Christian Resource Developer in the Isaan Language is needed. With over 20 million people and just 30,000 believers, the Isaan people are one of the largest unreached people groups in the world.
