MMS launches Rev Dr Clarence Lim Missionary Development Fund

Oct 2015    

Methodist Missions Society (MMS) launched the Rev Dr Clarence Lim Missionary Development Fund during its biennial fundraising “My Father’s Business” Banquet held on 23 Aug 2015 at The Fullerton Hotel.

The fund was started with $100,000 from a donor, who has requested anonymity. He felt driven to recognise and honour the immense contributions of MMS’ Founding Director, the Rev Dr Lim, who had passed away on 2 Oct 2014. The fund will provide financial support for MMS’ leadership Development among its serving missionaries, and potential Methodist candidates committed to serving full-time in MMS mission fields.

Serving missionaries are eligible to apply for recognised, full-time or part-time training courses conducted locally or overseas if they have served at least two years in a MMS mission field, or in MMS Home Office, and are recommended by their Country Director and supported by the Area Director.

Potential candidates intending to serve in MMS mission fields must be active members of a local Methodist church in Singapore, preferably in missions-related activities and have a character reference and recommendation by their Pastor-in-Charge.

Recognised seminaries and colleges include Trinity Theological College, Singapore Bible College, Asian Cross-Cultural Training Institute and Tung Ling Bible School while recognised seminars include mission conferences, Global or Eagles Leadership Seminars, and Church Planting programmes such as Growing Healthy Church.

If you would like to donate to ensure sustainability and viability of the fund, please call 6478-4818, or email mms@message.methodist.org.sg to find out more.
