What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

IMG_2299

Show Mercy is looking for a long term staff member to join our team in Uganda, Africa. (two year minimum commitment) This position would entail working on our agriculture team.

Show Mercy has been implementing Farming God's Way for the past year and have seen tremendous results. You can learn more about this ministry at www.farming-gods-way.org.

These methods of farming are producing harvests on 1/5 of an acre greater than most in Uganda can produce on an acre of land. This program is focused on teaching and demonstrating Biblical methods of farming that help provide opportunities for locals in the surrounding villages to truly provide for their own families. In addition, this farm is a discipleship opportunity to help those we work with to see growth and fruit produced in their own lives and families.

Some responsibilities would include:

 

– Learn and understand the Farming God’s Way program by working with our director and current team.

– Get connected with the FGW Uganda network to gain knowledge and stay up to date with training opportunities

– Help to encourage and develop the SMI agriculture staff

– Help to coordinate community training

– Help facilitate seasonal trainings and field days

– Work directly with the agriculture manager to help develop management skills and implement systems

Our farm is already producing great results recognized as a very successful program. Your position would entail first learning the system. Then helping to multiply it in the surrounding villages.

This is not just a farming position but a ministry/discipleship position to both our Ugandan staff as well as those we are training in the surrounding villages on this program.

You would work alongside the SMI agriculture staff giving encouragement, discipleship, and setting an example of good work ethic, excellence and spiritual maturity.
