OM Greece asks all of its members to commit to learning Greek, and the initial months of every OMers time in Greece is used for cultural adaptation and language training.  Presently, until there is a separate OM Greece Home office, we expect every OMer to serve in a part-time role in the office also.
To be suitable for this role you need to be:
• Clear about your faith and able to communicate it
• Creative
• A discipler
• a self starter and pioneer
• a good team player
• knowledge of Arabic, Farsi or Kurdish is useful but not essential

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.

Calling all Arabic speakers!!! Syrian refugees have flooded into Turkey. Churches and workers are distributing food regularly, building trust and showing good will. But who will share the gospel in their own language? We need evangelists; those who can share DBS; and simply those who have a heart for Syrians and can comfortably converse in Arabic. Turkey needs you!
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!
Our organization is in an exciting transition period of building capacity and releasing greater responsibility into the hands of national staff. The person in this position will be responsible for assessing the needs of our staff and facilitating the planning and provision of the necessary development.
Are you passionate about helping local communities of Jesus’ followers grow up holistically, willing to use the gifts God gave you for serving and esteeming the local Church?

In this fairly remote country in the Himalayas, many people have never heard of God’s love. Join Summit extreme for nine months and spend a significant part of your time in the Himalayan plateaus, at high altitudes and in restricted areas. While travelling in small groups through the villages we build relationships, share the gospel and sleep at local homes.
Since our beginnings, we have been driven by a deep conviction that everyone should have the opportunity to hear the gospel at least once. Though many people in Lesotho call themselves Christians, few have received biblical teaching or heard the gospel clearly. Join the team for exciting times of evangelism with children, youth, adults during village home visits. Grow in your walk with God and develop relationships within an international team and local people alike. All activities in the Lesoth
OM in Belgium is looking for an online evangelist who is ready, able and willing to invest a year in reaching the least reached right where they are: in front of their smartphones, tablets and computers. No qualifications required—except that you love Jesus, you love people, and you LOVE social media.
Do you believe in transforming lives practically and through the Gospel, but your skills are more in management and caring for people? We need someone to help our leadership ensure the health and well-being of their teams, who work in some of the hardest countries in the world, through community development and relief, serving hurting Muslim people. They need someone who has their back! If this is what you are passionate about, join us and put your gifts to use for the Kingdom of God.
Are you a qualified social worker with specialization in supporting women, unemployed men or youth at risk?  Did you have empathy to work with vulnerable or marginalised individuals over time, with a strengths based approach to recognized value and build capacity? Do you have the heart and grit see isolated and unreached communities reached with the eternal hope of the Gospel?
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.
