The REACH in Turkey 5 month discipleship program is an awesome opportunity for participants to connect with least reached people groups, while they grow in their own faith and relationship with God and others.

As a result of REACH in Turkey, we want to see global participants, including same, near and far-culture people, walking in step with God as their hearts and experiences are stretched. We want to equip them practically and with confidence to engage with Muslims as a member of our teams or in their home church in the Muslim world or diaspora.

Participants need to be flexible, teachable, somewhat adventurous as they explore and adjust to a new environment. Participants need to be in good health as the REACH in Turkey programme requires a lot of walking and travelling
Will there be accomodation provided?
People will be staying in rented flats sharing with other participants.
Will there be food provided?
Students are given allowances each week and expected to cater for themselves by a simple lifestyle. Some team meals will be shared together.
Do I need to make my own travel arrangements?
Participants need to arrange their own travel to Turkey. All ministry travel during REACH in Turkey is covered.
What should my health condition be like?
We recommend individuals be fully vaccinated before travelling. People who are not vaccinated will need to check the policy of Entering Turkey.
Do I need a visa?

Applicants should check if they need to apply for a visa for Turkey. https://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/ After arrival, participants will be assisted in the application for a residence permit.

A Lionheart holiday club is a five-day event for children, held in a church. Each day there is a fast moving, entertaining two-hour programme, designed for children to enjoy themselves as they learn the truth about God and about themselves. OM’s Kids ‘n’ Things children’s ministry team works in partnership with the church members to run the club. A Lionheart holiday club can be a useful event to bring in children from the community who do not usually attend church. Our aim is then to channel these children into the ongoing children’s work of the church. Although some children may become Christians during the holiday club it is often during the ongoing contact with Christians that children make a commitment. A Lionheart club is suitable for all primary school age children (4-11 years old). Some churches run a family service at the end of the week, which the children and their families are invited to.
