The Bear believes Jesus is good news not just for us but for everybody, no matter what ethnicity they are, language they speak or place they live. We support people who are working in different locations in Africa and Central Asia to bring the news that God is good to the people in these nations. The mission these teams have is different depending on the situation, but they all share the same values - servant-heartedness, valuing and respecting indigenous culture and working in partnership with local churches and believers. Projects are as varied as building homes for children with HIV, training local youth pastors, helping to improve the lives of children in orphanages, and vocational skills and training courses.

The Bear 'Global' team carries the vision of this work on behalf of the church and mobilises prayer, financial support and good communication between here and overseas. If you want to find out more about joining the Global team, speak to Iain on a Sunday morning.
