Do you know the difference between a claw hammer and a mallet? Can you weld a pipe, fit a shower, lay bricks and plaster a dry wall? Do you want to add to your set of skills and experience, serving God in one of the world’s great mission bases?

ZavCentre, on the outskirts of Brussels, Belgium is the first building OM ever owned. It was built in the 1870s as a paper factory, and has served many purposes. In 2021, OM in Belgium is seeking to meet the needs of the post-Covid missions world with an online/face-to-face conference centre, respite care for missionaries, and apologetics, church planting and wide evangelism online broadcast straight from the base.

To achieve this, we need to bend walls, create rooms, lay bricks and even foundations. We have planning permission for extensive renovations, but these plans will need to be reviewed for the post-Covid world. We now have a clear vision of what functions the base needs to fulfil, and are looking for people to turn it into reality.
