Incarnate is an artist’s journey of discipleship, theology, and cross-cultural ministry. Grow in your skill as an artist and understand the significance of your artistry in God’s eyes. Learn the theology of creativity and arts in the kingdom of God. Develop an approach for engaging the world through your artistic skill – particularly as a cross-cultural servant to the least-reached and marginalized. You will learn from experienced cross-cultural artists practicing ministry in a variety of contexts while also learning to express, challenge, and encourage yourself and others in new ways through your art form.

The course takes place over two locations: a two-month residency of coursework, studio time, and community life followed by a two-month placement collaborating with local artists alongside an OM team. The following tracks are currently offered. These categories are open to artists and genres from any culture: Music, Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre, Producer (Arts Facilitator). Specific details can be found at omarts.org/incarnate.

The Florence STEP (Short Term Exposure Program) is a unique opportunity for individuals to serve God in Florence, SC, USA at the OM Ships International campus. It is ideal for those with little, or no, missions experience and those looking to improve their English. Our desire is that participants learn and grow in their Christian walk and have their eyes and hearts opened to what God is doing through OM Ships. It is also an opportunity to seek the Lord for their next steps. We hope that each participant will leave with a better understanding of ministry and the part they have to play.
Life on the ships is fast-paced and can be intense. Come with a servant heart, an attitude to learn, and willingness to be flexible and this could be the experience of a lifetime. Many who have been on STEP bear witness to the huge impact it has made on their lives, and to how God has worked in and through them.
