A vital relationship with Jesus is critical to this mission. An aptitude for languages would be a plus; eagerness and commitment to invest considerable time in language acquisition are essential. Social skills would be a great asset; gifting in evangelism, while helpful, is not a prerequisite. To enter a university, a degree/diploma or certificate is required. We're looking primarily for young people (up to 35)–singles or couples without 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.

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.
Cape Town is home to thousands of people of other faiths who have migrated from some of the hardest-to-reach nations in Africa, along with a local community of South Africans who have never embraced the gospel. The OM ministry team in Cape Town works to impact these unreached people right on our doorstep with the love of Jesus. We hope to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers established in these neighbourhoods. Come and join us.
