Head of Fund Raising

Go & Live in

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.

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 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.

The role will involve managing bookings, ensuring that budgets, timescales and commitments are met, and effective stewardship of the resource that God has given us.
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 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.

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.
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.

OM in Belgium is looking for members for the new Creative Team. While bringing your own special talents to the mix, you’ll enjoy working with other creative people and trying things out which you’ve never done before, and never imagined you would.

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.
The Head of Creative Outreach recruits, develops and leads a team of content creators who will work online, face to face and through street and venue events to share the love of Jesus with people who have never encountered it.

The team will be made up of artists, musicians, dancers, sports people, writers, directors, producers and others from the creative industries willing to invest a year or more for God’s kingdom. Spiritual maturity and an openness to all ideas are key to this role.
