Journeymen with the IMB

Our partners in Sicily, Steve and April Brown, are looking for some Journeymen (mid-term position) to help plant a church in Mazara del Vallo. This is the most Arab populated city in Italy. After 3 months of orientation and training in Palermo, the Journeymen will engage with lost people and seek to start Bible studies. The “baton” will be passed to a career missionary who will seek to plant a church. This is a two year commitment. For more information go to IMB's website.
