‘to be there when it’s most needed; to provide relief through our local ministries and churches in emergency cases’
People can get into problems they cannot fix themselves, while the problems ask for a direct response to keep these people safe and alive. We think of a roof above your head, safety for you and your family; having basic food and water. And whatever the causes, if people don’t have this, we are called to care for them. 
After the 2019 earthquake and the covid-crises we have seen how relief can be a great testimony of the love of Christ. You can be a part of a ministry in pioneer stage that will work among the poor families (Physically, Spritually, and emotionally) of Albania to provide relief and to develop them. Helping them in their urgent short term needs and providing opportunities for long term progress.

Relief workers can help our team to intentionally reach out to people in direct physical or emotional needs. In any emergency, affecting bigger groups or just a family, it would be great to step in, help practically and spiritually. We have some resources, including an apartment, to be able to help.

You will need:
• A pioneering spirit
• A heart to reach out to people in need
• Willingness to learn Albanian
• Any experience is an extra (social work, youth and kids ministry, crisis/relief work)
• Basic admin skills (MS word, outlook, etc)

*This is not a paid role, support must be raised for living expenses.

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.

Interested?

Do you have skills to reach the least reached?  Can you organise outreach to the marginalised, working alongside church partners?  Or manage a hall for community outreach? Are you equipped to fulfil this portfolio role? You would be working with local churches and other partners to help vibrant communities be formed among the least reached in the Northern and Southern Ghana
Are you looking for an opportunity to explore your gifting and passions? Or are you a student who wants to practice their vocation in a cross-cultural setting? OM is mobilising young Jesus followers to join our international team and serve and experience ministry in Ireland. We are open to have interns come from 2 weeks to 6 months, or even up to a year! Dates are flexible, although there might be more opportunities to help in other ministries during the spring/summer.
