POLYNESIA SCHOOL OF MISSIONS

         

 

 
 

Kia Orana!

    

 

   
       

 

 
  The Polynesia School of Missions is being established on Rarotonga, Cook Islands to assist Polynesia Islands Mission (Administered by the Assemblies of God in the Cook Islands) facilitate and fulfill their great commission goals and objectives in the Polynesian sector of the South Pacific.        
       

 
 
 
           
  This uttermost part was first evangelized over 100 years ago, but today little remains of any Evangelical of Pentecostal witness.  Now is an opportune time to implement a fresh missionís strategy that is empowered and energized by the Holy Spirit.        
 
 
           
  The geographical isolation and scattering of over 300 Polynesian Islands is not conducive to commercial sea trading.   Accessibility is often limited and often infrequent.  Therefore PIMís cutting edge strategy involves use of small boats to transport mission expeditions among the Islands, a method almost identically employed by the original pioneers in the Pacific.        
 
 
 
       
           

  

 
           

 

   
 

     

PIM offers a missionary experience unique in these times. After study and practical preparation through Polynesia School of Missions you can become a part of an expedition team that puts adventure back into reaching out to a lost Paradise.  If  you are willing to go where you have never been before and prepared to attempt what you have never done before, consider enrolling for the greatest experience of your life. 

 
         
         
         
         
         
           
 

      How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not  have believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach unless they are sent? Romans 10:14-15.  
         
         
         
           
        CAMPUS LIVING  
           
 

      The accommodation, and general living conditions will on endeavor to reflect the Polynesian culture of the small Isolated Islands.  This is for the purpose of pre- conditioning students for greater culture integration and assimilation while missionary expedition. Dormitory accommodation for singles and separate rooms for married couples, will be offered. Polynesian food will feature prominently on the menu.  
         
         
         
         
         
           
 

      Polynesians are a communal and community orientated culture. They are non materialistic and consider all things in common. Students are advised to be highly flexible and very adaptable as cross culture assimilation requires many paradigm shifts.  Many of the Islands to be visited are isolated and untouched by Western culture and tourism.  Endeavor to make this once in a life time missionary adventure your personal Everest.

Mission ministry availabilities for the youth!

Young mature people, who have the previous experience, also the blessing and finance from their spiritual home church backgrounds, are wanted as fulltime workers for the following specific ministries:
They are:
1. Assistance at the Christian school
2. Youth. Both at the National and Local level.
3. Work in the youth department in the Arorangi Church
4. Work in the National Office with clercical office work 
Notice:  Several young people have contacted PSM from Finland, but the financial costs have been the key factor to leave everything before the Lord in prayer to wait for the better times.  Polynesia is the most faraway place from the Northern Europe.  Actually this matter of the finance is something, what we are facing everywhere we turn to in the islands.  Hopingly in the future the local movement has better possibilities to come down in the field expenses.  

We hope, that gradually PIM & PSM are able to receive interest in U.S.A. through Sea Islands Mission Inc.  The North America is closer and in comparison there lives more available Christian youth to come along for helping islands ministries.

Thanks for your prayers to see the Lord's leading in everything.
