Description

 

The Cause:

Do you speak English?  Imagine Thailand works to build relationships with Thai students at the country's most prestigious learning center, Chulalongkorn University. These are the future leaders in Thailand in all areas of business, industry, politics and beyond. You will be able to introduce Jesus to the students who will impact the whole country. (Raconteur = communicator, conversationalist,talker)

The Task:

English is a very sought after skill, and students love to practice speaking with foreigners. We have a twice weekly English Corner, where we meet students through conversations and games, and continue to build relationships with them one-to-one. We work in partnership with Entrance Coffeehouse and Studio as our base for campus ministry.

Volunteers would work alongside the Director of Student Life, helping to plan English Corner sessions, arranging coffeehouse activities and events, launching Alpha courses, and help coordinate special travel with students to Imagine Thailand's other centres in the North and South.

Volunteers would have the freedom to connect with students according to their individual giftings and passions, especially in music, art, dance and other creative pursuits.

Flexibility is a key characteristic for volunteers in this role.

Support:

  • Volunteers will be working directly alongside the Director of Student Life and will receive on-the-job training for the first weeks, as they begin to build their weekly schedule based on needs and skills that the volunteer has.
  • Weekly meetings will continue with opportunities for regular feedback and evaluation to take place.
  • The volunteer will also be encouraged to join a local international church in the city to receive regular teaching and to be a part of the body of Christ beyond their work with Imagine Thailand.
  • Regular connections will also be made by other members of the Imagine Thailand leadership team
