Sports Evangelist

Go & Live in

OM in Belgium is looking for a sports evangelist. Sports and fitness are by far the most important cultural activities, with ⅓ saying they play sports regularly, and 70% saying they regularly do fitness. The gym industry was booming up to Covid-19, and people are looking for ways to get back looking good and feeling fit. This role is for someone who can be a credible sports or fitness coach, or build relationships by joining a local team or club, possibly playing in ranking competitions.

You love sport, and, what’s more, you’re good at it. Good enough to have your name on a trophy somewhere, or maybe a coaching qualification, or maybe you’ve been part of a team or academy that was really going somewhere. But you also love Jesus, and you want to invest in the Kingdom, even if it’s only for a while, before returning to full-time sport, or taking your career in a different direction.

Sports and fitness are by far the most important cultural activities, with ⅓ saying they play sports regularly, and 70% saying they regularly do fitness. The gym industry was booming up to Covid-19, and people are looking for ways to get back looking good and feeling fit. This role is for someone who can be a credible sports or fitness coach, or build relationships by joining a local team or club, possibly playing in ranking competitions.

We don’t have a manual for this role: all across Africa churches have been started through football teams, and in Central Asia OM’s Total Fit programme has opened many doors. But, thus far in sport-obsessed Belgium, nobody has found the key to sports evangelism.

So there’s just two objectives:
1) Find out how sports-based evangelism can work in Belgium
2) Do it.
And one stretch goal:
3) Once you’ve developed the ministry, train others to do the same.

Does this sound like you? We are looking for a one-year minimum commitment. If you haven’t been in front-line missions before, we will combine your first year with the OM Belgium year programme.

Visa: EU
Health: Good physical health

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.

OM in Belgium works in a sophisticated trilingual environment. Our ambition to plant churches, reach the unreached and mobilise believers is often limited by our capacity in language. We are looking for a language specialist in Dutch, and a language specialist in French, who can unblock these ministries and multiply our work. For Dutch, this also includes taking part in the Flemish Bible translation project.
OM in Belgium is looking for a street evangelist. If that’s you, you don’t need any further explanation. If it isn’t you, further explanation is too much.

A friendly smile is all you need to strike up a conversation. You love people, and you love Jesus. Whether working with musicians, street food, actors, stunts, pop-ups or flashmobs, or just a shared interest in waiting for the bus, you always find a way to share a little bit of your faith, and part as new friends.
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.
The team leader for music leads a team of musicians as part of the creative outreach ministry. A musician yourself, you will recruit, organise and direct a team of contemporary and orchestral musicians to produce a variety of content for online, face to face, venue-based and street outreach. An experienced musician yourself, you will be ready, able and willing to lead by example in investing your talent for wide-sowing among the least reached.
OM in Belgium is looking for people with compassion and strong will to work among victims of trafficking, to advocate at the European and national level for better laws and more helpful treatment by the authorities, and to gently share the gospel through a consistent, loving lifestyle.

The Building, Maintenance and Repair worker will work with the Head of Buildings to keep ZavCentre functioning as it is now, and to create the new ZavCentre, including renovating accommodation, building video and recording studios, completing the OM International Prayer Hub, and preparing meeting rooms to meet post-Covid regulations.

OM in Belgium is looking for an illustrator/animator to work in the world’s leading nation for production of graphic novels and comic books.

The Year Program is a 12-month opportunity to support the growth of the Kingdom of God in Belgium and to grow personally and in faith while doing so. The Year Program has two purposes; The first one is that of a gap year, the second one is to prepare a person to continue serving the Lord through international missions. It offers tools and opportunities to understand a new culture as well as to introduce a person to what it is to be a missionary.

In Italy, where the roots of Catholicism lie, only very few people have a living relationship with God and know Jesus as Lord and Saviour. We believe and experience that Church Plants are an effective way to reach out to those who do not know God and help young believers grow in their faith.

Come and join OM Italia to serve with a local Church Plant.
We are looking for someone with good organizational and communication skills and a passion for reaching unreached peoples to oversee our short-term outreach department.
You would be working with a multicultural team, based in a large city.  As this is not a full-time role you would have plenty of opportunity for your own personal ministry alongside organizing the short-term outreaches.
As a member of this church planting team you will have the opportunity to join our teammates in ushering people into the family of God.  It will be your job to attend meetings, meet with seekers and new Believers one-on-one, encourage the local pastors, and to take part in expanding this already growing ministry.
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.

At the same time, you'll be investing in the lives of those around you, sensitively sharing your faith. Come and impact the next generation in this strategic corner of the world.
In this fairly remote country in the Himalayas, many people have never heard of God’s love.
