Come assist in our established sports ministry! Build on our existing program based on methods used around the world.  If you love sports and would like to use that platform to introduce people to Jesus, then this is an opportunity for you!
2-3 Years
Full Time
As soon as possible
We need someone who would be willing to join in organizing regular sporting activities with the aim of building relationships through social sport.  This person would join a team who will be identifying true seekers and testing a strategy to bring these seekers from the playing field to following Jesus Christ.  Once this is accomplished this person would have the opportunity to disciple and train new believers to replicate this ministry in another part of the city.

We are looking for people with the following qualities: sports enthusiast, organizational skills, leadership, enthusiasm, self-motivation and the ability to influence and motivate others.​

Gifting in Evangelism and discipleship would be helpful (but is not strictly necessary). Any formal sports coaching/training qualifications or sports ministry training would be helpful (but not essential).

We offer ongoing training and development in sports ministry, evangelism and discipleship methods as well as support from an already-established sports-ministry team.

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.

Interested?

We’re looking for an Events Manager to organize one (or a few) Run for the World (R4TW) events within the serving country/area. If you have skills in event planning, networking and organization, this could be your dream job. Run for the World (R4TW) is an open-source global sports event – running and making a positive impact on the world around you. It is a God-given opportunity to use sport to transform the lives of young people locally and globally.
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. Do you share our passion for these people to hear of His fame and renown? Come. Join one of our teams and be amazed at how God is working in lives and communities around the world, and be amazed at how He works in your life, as well. We are looking for you, and many more like you, to join us on this journey to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers established among the least reached all over the world.
