We’re looking for a mature believer (or believing couple) to serve in a local migrant church and work with refugees who are settling in Athens.  This role is for creative people with good communication skills who can pioneer new projects.
2-3 Years
Full Time
As soon as possible
The person or couple would attend a migrant church and be part of the life of the church; in particular supporting the pastor and church leaders in their work with muslim background people.  There are currently many projects ongoing including discipleship, language classes, sports ministry, but much more can be done.
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.

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.
OM Greece supports various ministries to survivors of human trafficking and prostitution, as well as to refugees, some of whom have experienced deeply traumatic and distressing situations on their journey to Europe.  We are looking for qualified trauma counsellors and psychologists willing to come and serve on the mission field, offering their skills to help these people deal with the effects of what they have faced, in one to one sessions and group settings.
Use your business skills to support the restoration of lives damaged by abuse and trafficking!  OM Greece supports the work of two non-profit companies seeking to provide employment and training opportunities for women as they readjust to ‘normal’ life.  One challenge is balancing the needs of a ministry to vulnerable people and the requirements of a business that should become sustainable and self supporting. People with knowledge and experience in business management and marketing are needed.

OM Greece, in partnership with various local churches and organisations, is involved in reaching out through mercy projects to the poor and needy. These projects offer not only free warm food, access to showers, laundry and clothing, but a chance for people to find welcome, a listening ear, and the message of hope that comes from and through Jesus Christ.  Come and serve as His hands and feet in Athens!
