1-2 Years
Full Time
As soon as possible
In Durres, OM Albania is working with one of the state-run centers for handicapped children, members of the church regularly take out the children from the center on walks. This doesn't only change up the routine for the children who have little distraction, but it also fights against the cultural stigma of Albania, that disabled children should be kept a secret.

OM Albania regularly holds meetings with handicapped children and their families at a local church, to teach the children about Jesus. This concept also brings together the families of the children, as they often struggle with poverty and discrimination.

We don't only work with the children themselves, trying to teach them how to count or write, but we also aim to help the family of the child. Many times the family lives in poverty, and the siblings feel left out as they don't get the same attention. OM Albania tries to provide the siblings with monthly meetings so that they can go out and have fun, but also helps the siblings with homework.

You will need:
– A willingness to learn Albanian
– Flexibility
– Humility and patience
– A love for people
– A heart for children

Live opportunities are unsalaried. Most people joining OM have to raise financial support to cover their living expenses, usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters.

Are you good with computers and IT and willing to use these gifts in overseas mission? We need someone to keep our systems functioning properly, to help our team in areas of IT that they don't understand and to handle security of devices and information.
Across OM, we have a strong need for individuals gifted in administration to aid ministry taking place on the mission field. Those with administrative skills are needed in almost every facet of ministry to ensure that outreaches, meetings and programmes operate with efficiency, and that tasks, paperwork and coordination involved in organising people and events is accomplished with completeness and attention to detail. If this describes how God has wired you, consider here how you can use your administrative gifts to see more vibrant communities of Jesus followers established among the least reached.
Do you love to listen to people's stories, build relationships and speak into people's situations? This role of people care is to be a person within our team who is focused on the mental and emotional well being of the team members and to give counseling if needed. We seek a person with a great love for their fellow Christians, and who desires to assist, counsel and provide spiritual care for our missionaries as they serve God in this country.
A writer in Albania will be writing stories for the purposes of advocacy, recruiting, financial development, education, awareness and prayer. The position involves producing insightful and engaging content of ministry, culture and people.

OM writers share stories of God’s work through OM in an accurate, culturally sensitive way.
OM Albania is a growing, dynamic mission field. In order to fulfill the Vision of OM Albania, we need a hardworking, motivated, and experienced individual who can help us to thrive financially. We want to see long term, permanent relationships with sponsors and supporting organisations built so that our ministry has enough access to finances and prayer support. We like to see capital formation, allocation of risk, expansion, deepening and broadening financial relationships.
Since our beginnings, we have been driven by a deep conviction that everyone should have the opportunity to hear the gospel at least once. Sadly, there are still thousands of peoples and communities that have never heard about Jesus, ever. We are looking for people with a passion for Jesus and a passion to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers established among the least reached. We focus on evangelism, discipleship and church planting among those who have never yet heard of Christ.

Many women in Albania are living without hope. They work very hard both in and out of the home and are often limited by their husbands or fathers about where they can go and what they can do.
OM Albania seeks to give these women the hope found in Jesus, so that they can find out about God's love despite their difficult circumstances. If this is something that you have a heart for, join us!
Albania needs someone who is passionate about evangelism and enjoys motivating people to serve and be involved in mission.

The evangelical church in Albania is just 0.5% of the population. Many people have not heard of Jesus and the church needs help to spread the Good News. There are people and churches around the world that want to come to Albania. You could be the link that brings these together.
