Language Specialist French

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.

Spelling mistakes, grammar errors, stop words and bad translation should annoy you, but, actually, they motivate you to jump in and help. You love taking dull and damaged text, setting it straight and making it shine. You love it when you can help people improve their spoken language. And you love seeing great materials which were only available in English translated so that everyone who speaks your language can enjoy them.

Are you a writer? A translator? A language coach? A proof-reader? You’re all of them at once, which is why we’ve had to give this role the prosaic title of Language Specialist. But maybe you can help us with that.

In return, we offer a career-building opportunity as a writer, translator or language teacher. Previous specialists have gone onto careers in Public Relations, as professors of linguistics, and as leading translators.

ISRAEL: What comes to mind?  Beautiful mountains? Mediterranean beaches? Deserts? Biblical sites? War? Terrorists? Bombings? We want you to share the hope of Christ to the hopeless. 
We are reaching out to Jews and Arabs. You can learn Hebrew or Arabic and use some English to communicate the Gospel of Jesus.
In Italy, where the roots of Catholicism lie, only very few people have a living relationship with God and know Jesus as Lord and Saviour. We believe and experience that Church Plants are an effective way to reach out to those who do not know God and help young believers grow in their faith. Do you want to help create a vibrant community of Jesus followers among Italians? Do you have a desire to reach Italians with the gospel message? Come and join OM Italia to serve with a local Church Plant.
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.
Is your heart beating for immigrants from mostly Muslim background? Do you have a passion to pass on God's love holistically?
