Discipleship is what the Kingdom of God is all about. Disciples of Jesus helping others become disciples of Jesus. Sometimes discipleship is done in a one-on-one type setting. Sometimes discipleship is done in a small group setting. Sometimes discipleship is done in a larger group setting like on Sunday mornings. But we want to talk about a different type of discipleship that is through an intense intentional program that has a designated time frame but will deeply transform you life.
Here at Baan Athitaan Church in Chiangrai, Thailand, we are passionate about creating spaces and opportunities for authentic, Word of God driven, discipleship opportunities.
In September of 2017 God brought the Crave International team from Canada to Chiang Rai, Thailand with a passion for discipleship and the local church. It was through God’s leading and through serving alongside each other at Grace Language School and at Baan Athitaan Church that we have gained a confidence in serving alongside each other for the glory of God and the expansion of His kingdom. The Crave team serves within and alongside Baan Athitaan church (BAC) in many capacities and we serve the Lord together very well.
We are excited to announce that this fall we will be partnering together for an intensive discipleship Crave program! We are inviting young adults all over the world to join and become a small group of interns that will come and serve alongside our team at BAC, where each intern will go through an overview of the entire Bible, be fully immersed into language and culture, serve the local church and community, have short-term missions experiences in Thailand, go on retreats, evangelize, and learn better how to walk with God and see Him transform not only your life, but the lives of some of the least reached people in our world today.
Please take a moment and look at this short video clip:
We believe that the holistic approach of this program leaves young adults with a deepened faith, with real life changing, cross-cultural experiences and with an increased love and understanding for the local church and its impact on our world today.
At the same time, we will be also opening this experience up to English speaking Thai nationals to also participate in various service opportunities and of course journeying through the Word of God.
As our team grows and as we journey deeper down this path, we look forward to also providing this experience in the Thai language in the not too distant future.
The dates for this special internship are from September 5 to December 20, 2019.
If you feel that God is tugging on your heart, or maybe you know someone who you might think is a good fit to come and journey through the Crave program in Northern Thailand, please check out www.craveinternational.org for more information.
Our team is excited and ready to serve you!
Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we continue to seek to make disciples and expand the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus here in and around Northern Thailand.
Until All the People Living In and Around Northern Thailand have a chance to know Him,
Michael for the Team
