Colin & Jill Bakon – SIM

Colin works for SIM (www.sim.org.au ), based in Australia but helping develop the sending of Latin American missionaries through church mobilization throughout Latin America. His primary resource is Simply Mobilizing (SM) and more specifically Kairos. He is developing national teams throughout Latin America through training and supervision visits as well as online training and mentoring while back home in Australia. This work is seeing churches being mobilised to participate in the World Christian Movement, God’s work of using His followers, to make Jesus’ name known in communities where He is not known. There are SM teams now in Dominican Republic, Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru with plans to start SM in more countries. (www.simplymobilizing.com)

He also has a role with SIM International in helping to mobilise the mission into new areas amongst peoples (communities) that still have no gospel work. He is doing this through developing and refocusing the mobilisation of our sending entities in the SIM world to look at how to mobilise for new initiatives. He is a member of a task force which has been given the task to see this happen.
