HOW CAN I PARTNER?
Church Planting Apprenticeship Program
We believe we need not only a single group of like-minded Khmer church-planters, but an effective, contextual and reproducible means by which we can establish a pipeline of local leadership equipped to lead a movement of church-planting churches.
The Church-Planting Apprenticeship Program is designed to create a learning community of Cambodian church-planters that fully integrates a core didactic curriculum of sufficient depth to pass an ordination exam, with a practical, local-church based ministry component, with abundant opportunities for mentorship and coaching. In time, our vision is to have gradually increasing Khmer presence among the architects, instructors, coaches and mentors within the Program.
Finally, an annual Pastor’s Conference and Pastor’s Retreat are also integral to the development of a learning and ministering community characterized by mutual trust, respect and care - critical foundations for this young Presbytery.

We seek to mobilize the local church through: biblical teaching on the justice of God, the dignity of humanity and God’s good design for human sexuality; personal and corporate prayer; service and outreach events; compassionate care for survivors; and strategic partnerships that bridge the gap between the church and anti-trafficking NGO’s.

City Dormitory Ministries
Two of our city churches have recently opened men's and women's dormitories in an effort to provide safe and affordable housing to university students coming from the rural villages. Our national ministry partners and field team members work together to care for these students, share the gospel with them, and lead them in discipleship.
In addition, each dorm provides different skills development opportunities through the associated church including conversational english classes and music classes.
Short term teams and 1-2 year interns are always welcome to help teach these classes. Financial contributions are also appreciated as much of the actual living expenses are subsidized through this project in order to provide a safe place to live that is affordable for poor students coming from the villages.

Discipleship and Vocational Program
The village church plant in Ang K'chiey has been meeting for worship for a few years. Through English/Khmer Bible outreach classes, students of all ages have been able to hear the good news and many have faithfully been attending church. Despite the strong societal and family pressure in the village to not leave Buddhism, several students have come to Christ.
Most families in this village are subsistent rice farmers with some supplemental income coming from livestock. Many students who finish school or drop out end up working in clothing factories. The hours are long, the work and housing environments unsafe, and the type of work that is unsustainable as one grows Often, regardless of a student’s ability the money and guidance is not available for them to pursue further education or training after high school.
The team is seeking to disciple these students who are faithful members of the village church plant. They can plan ahead so that they can have a reliable vocation in the future to support their family and the church.

City Church Planting and Outreach
With two church plants opening their doors within the last few years, our team is still actively involved in outreach activities on a regular basis in addition to growing a fledgling, yet faithful group of Khmer believers. Each of our new sites had their first group of baptisms this past year and we rejoiced with our national partners who were ordained and formed the first presbytery for the Khmer Presbyterian church.
Children's outreach activities, english classes, computer classes, conversational english classes, community walks, and regular missions trips to rural villages are just some of the ways that our church plants engage with the people in their community and hope to develop long term relationships rooted in love and grace.
Our city churches always welcome short-term teams and interns to assist in teaching and general church plant support.
