Creative Access Countries

Creative Access Countries

What is a “Creative Access Country?” It is a country where missionaries are not allowed to go in an open manner. As a result, they often go as tentmakers, which means they have a secular job in that country in order to have access to the people to share the Gospel with them. The term “tentmaker” comes from the Bible where Paul was literally a tent maker on the one hand and an evangelist on the other.
In many creative access countries, security risks are high and therefore we will not post the names or pictures of SFC people working in those countries. If you want more information about our people working in such countries, please contact members of our missions council.
Springfield Faith Center currently has two single women and a family of three working in a creative access country. They are involved as English teachers and language students, using these platforms to be the best teachers and students they can be in order to represent God well in the eyes of those they interact with.
As the Bible says: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-24
