Head of Fund Raising

OM in Belgium is looking for a head of fundraising. We are fifty people, part of the OM family, working among the least reached in one of the world’s most technological, bureaucratic and advanced nations. Our vision is to move from a position of just breaking-even to be able to be generous partners and standard-setters.

When people say “if only we had money for our ministry”, you’re the one who says “well, let’s raise the money, then.” When other people are scared of fund-raising, you get excited by it. You love developing new partners for ministry. You know there are wealthy people out there who are longing to be able to invest their wealth for God’s kingdom. You know there are individuals who don’t have much, but want to give from what they have. You know that there are people who consider it a privilege to stand alongside God’s work among the least reached.

OM in Belgium is looking for a head of fundraising. We are fifty people, part of the OM family, working among the least reached in one of the world’s most technological, bureaucratic and advanced nations. We’re not seeking to live a life of luxury, but we recognise that trying to do everything as cheaply as possible is off-putting and often counter-productive. Our vision is to move from a position of just breaking-even to be able to be generous partners and standard-setters. We have a major facility in ZavCentre, which could be much more effective in supporting ministry in Belgium and worldwide if it were redeveloped to meet current requirements. We also want to see the church in Belgium grow up, and itself become a giving church, rather than a financially receiving church.

Everyone who is new to OM and has not been part of a similar programme in another organisation will spend their first year as part of our Year Programme, which will include working in their chosen ministry. This includes Bible training, language learning, and introduction to missions life and many opportunities to develop new skills and talents.

EU-citizen due to visa requirements.
Health: Reasonable adjustments can be made for disabilities
Willingness to raise personal support

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.

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.
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.
We are looking for a motivated and well-organized Event Coordinator to join our team. In this role you will be working with the Development Department and responsible for planning, organizing, managing, and coordinating various types of events!
