the chosen few
The Lord of the
Harvest is calling people to labour in His mission field. We identify
these people and help them to do what God wants them to do. Prospective
candidates come to us from Bible colleges, independent churches, Church
Mission Boards and secular universities and colleges. Candidates need
to meet certain essential requirements. To do this, we have tools like
application forms, medical forms, referees, personal interviews and so
on. The selection procedure is long and strict. The Personnel Secretary
along with her team processes applications. But the candidates’ committee
does the selection of the candidates after which the Board gives its final
approval. Although a prototype of this procedure has been followed from
the beginning, it has developed since then.
training was introduced to equip new recruits before they entered their
mission fields or ministry bases. The training programme of IEM began
in 1974 at Nashik. New candidates are trained in language learning principles
and various other subjects like leadership development and finance management.
The course was designed to develop the trainees’ skills to update their
knowledge and develop their character.Our future plans we want to develop
the curriculum to cater to the needs in the mission field.
