Impact Ireland is an exciting outreach, involving Christians from around the world working together with local Irish churches, to share and demonstrate the love of Jesus. Experience thought-provoking, creative, and interactive training, then join an international team to share the message of the Gospel in word and action, together with local Christians across Ireland.

The programme starts with one day of training and orientation at Lacken House, OM Ireland’s headquarters. This includes Bible teaching, worship, understanding and articulating the Gospel, prayer, introduction to Irish culture, and other practical training. Participants will then head out in teams across Ireland, working with local churches to share the Gospel and demonstrate God’s love in action. In previous years we have engaged in the following ministries, and we expect to be doing similar ministries this year: children’s clubs, open-air street evangelism, cleaning litter on estates, street theatre, leaflet distribution, musical opportunities, visiting the elderly, gardening, sports and activities with youth. Also we will be involved with the Fleadh (Annual Irish Music festival). Musicians welcome.

We are looking for people who are passionate about Jesus and want to share the Gospel. Team members will need to be flexible and willing to step out of their comfort zone to try new things. A good level of English is required, as all training and outreach activities will be in English. We accept married couples and will do our best to accommodate them together, but they may have separate sleeping accommodation. High level of energy is required as most church programmes will entail long work days.
For the orientation and training you will be at Lacken House. We provide beds/mattresses during this time, but all participants should bring a sleeping bag and pillow. During the ministry outreach, local churches will arrange accommodation: some in homes and others in church halls, so it is advisable to bring an air mattress. If you have any particular need/requirement for alternative provision, contact your local OM office.
During the orientation all meals will be at Lacken House. While taking part in the ministry outreach week, local churches will organise food. In some cases the churches will provide and prepare food, in other cases they will provide food for you to prepare. If you are a vegetarian, or have any special dietary needs, make sure you inform us before you come.
Please fly into Dublin airport (airport code DUB) in the morning (before 11 am) of Saturday 1 August where we will meet you and take you to Lacken House. Please book your departure flight for the late morning (11 am) or later, on Saturday 8 August. We will provide transport to Dublin Airport. How to locate us: Collect your bags, leave through customs, and make your way to Terminal 2. Look for the prominent yellow star-like structure and you should see a representative with an OM Ireland sign.
Please contact your local office if you have any health concerns.

MDT (Missions Discipleship Training) exists in the UK to train disciples for mission in an urban context. Based in one of Europe’s most culturally diverse cities, MDT will invest in you through high quality training and mentoring so that you can know God and His world better, meet the challenges of discipleship, and join in God’s mission to reach the unreached. An initial period of intensive training is followed by an overseas mission placement of at least 2 months.
The Luke 24 Journey is a personal journey within a team setup. We focus on hearing God’s voice, live by faith and obedience. As we travel through the mountains or the desert there may be an opportunity to minister to or serve people. The Luke 24 journey is unique in the sense that it doesn’t have a fixed or planned program beforehand. As we journey together we ask and trust God to guide us in our daily walk with him. Our desire through the Luke 24 Journey is that people would receive or confirm a clear calling and be commissioned to be Disciple Makers wherever they may find themselves in the future.
Thousands of international tourists come to Switzerland during the summer, including many Arabs from the Arabian Peninsula. Many have never had the opportunity to personally meet a Jesus follower or to hear the Gospel in their home country. We want to take this unique opportunity and use the freedom we have in Switzerland to share God`s love with the Arabs from the Arab Peninsula.
Each Church we work with has a vision to reach the children and youth of their community with the Gospel through teaching English from a Bible based program .OM Hungary has the opportunity assist them through native English speakers to offer English to their community. By working alongside Churches we assure the follow up of those interested in growing deeper spiritually after the camp is over.
