In years past, medical missions was the primary method that missionaries would use to meet the needs of the nation they were serving. And while medical outreach continues to be an important part of missions, English teaching has become an increasingly effective way that missionaries can reach others.
Since 2001, VOICE Missions has been helping to meet this need in the nation of Taiwan by providing volunteer English teachers to rural schools and camps. Our missionaries have many opportunities to share Christ’s love as they teach English and make friends in their various locations.
VOICE Missions is primarily a teaching ministry. We work with local governments and businesses to provide volunteer English teachers for public schools and private camps in rural Taiwan. This volunteer work opens many doors for ministry in these areas..
Because we live and volunteer in the same community, there are many opportunities for ministry. Some teams start English Bible Studies, others start ministries to village children or in local orphanages. Regardless of where our teams work, ministry opportunities abound!
Because of generous sponsors who cover travel and living expenses, missionaries in the VOICE Missions program do not need to raise support before coming to the mission field.
Located in the 10-40 Window, the need for missionaries in Taiwan is great. Over 4 million Taiwanese, or about 18% of the nation, are unreached with the Gospel, and less than 0.5% of the working class is considered evangelical Christian. Although the majority of Taiwanese believe in a mixture of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism, the people are open to hearing the Gospel.
“Having the opportunity to serve in Taiwan for one year has been the best year of my life! From the beauty of the small island to the amazing people Taiwan has such a special place in my heart and always will. I have never met such great beautiful people, and being able to teach children is such a blessing in so many ways! You may be the "English Teacher" but I assure you, more than that, you will be a student who is always learning. People’s hearts are so open to hearing about Christ, and they listen. If you are wanting to go somewhere to serve, I really recommend coming to Taiwan. You won't regret it!”
“Living and teaching in Taiwan has not only been rewarding professionally and personally, but it's also encouraged me to grow and pursue God's plan for my life as I spend time here. For the past two years I've been able to work on obtaining my college degree online while also serving as a teacher, and I've been so blessed by the support and encouragement that I've received.”
