Support for Teaching

How can they call on the one they have not believed in?  And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?  And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?  And how can they preach unless they are sent?

As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.”
            —Romans 10:14,15

If you are reading about this ERRC teaching opportunity in China, it’s likely you are considering it for yourself or for someone you know. Perhaps you just read a description of a teaching position, with its required commitments as well as qualifications and benefits. But this is more than a teaching position; this is an opportunity to make a difference in China.

As you consider this opportunity, know that your effectiveness to impact someone’s worldview maybe proportionate to the commitment of the people who stay at home to pray for you. Without that, you could perhaps be an excellent teacher, but your engagement in the work of God’s kingdom would not be complete. Pray about it. Why do you want to teach in China?

ERRC will be your partner, if you respond to the call.  Besides having a team of behind the scenes administrative people at ERRC making this possible, you need to begin thinking now about who might be on the team that sends you. Your sending team will empower you to be as effective as possible.

While you will receive a stipend from your host institute in China and other benefits,  you will be asked to contribute to a Partnership Fund that will facilitate your placement and orientation. (The amount varies with assignment; for exact amounts write the mobilization office at teach.errchina@gmail.com)

It is very likely your sending team will want to stand behind you not only through prayer and emotional support, but by providing extra finances you may need to support this experience. ERRC will help you establish a budget and learn how to communicate this very exciting vision to those people whom God calls to support His work worldwide– in this case, perhaps through sending you to China.

Open your own heart to the idea of being sent, of joining with a team in this opportunity for ministry, and letting all synergistically enjoy the rewards of being part of your ministry.
