What is God’s calling on your life? Explore what God says in the Bible. Explore missions towards some of the least reached people in France and Europe.

Throughout the 3-month programme the participants will receive training in the spiritual essentials of the faith, such as Bible reading and exposition, the discipline of prayer and learning how to effectively serve and bless their local church and community. As you explore, we want to walk with you, providing mentoring and discipleship. The participants will also take part in 4 short term outreach events including 1 to Turkish immigrants in Europe (possibly in Germany) and 3 in France reaching the ethnically, geographically and generationally least reached. Our aim is to give you an experience of working in missions in an international team!

Participants will be those that are ready and open to learn, adaptable to living and working in an international team, and wanting to explore the faith more deeply, discovering God’s calling on their lives. Participants must be able to speak English OR French as these are the languages in which the training will be simultaneously conducted.
Will there be accomodation provided?
Participants will be housed in the separate male and female dorms located at the OM France base (this accommodation is included in the price; any extra accommodation needs such as for couples or older participants not wanting to live in the dorms will be calculated as an extra cost and will depend on what is available).
Will there be food provided?
Participants will cook for themselves in the kitchen facilities at the OM France base. Participants will receive a food allowance of 300 EUR each per month and will need to buy their own meals with this allowance.
Do I need to make my own travel arrangements?
Participants will need to organise and fund their own travel to and from the base location at the beginning and end of the training. All travel related to the training is included in the estimated costs.
What should my health condition be like?
Participants should be generally fit, not requiring intensive medical care.
Do I need a visa?

Participants outside of the EU may require a visa. If a visa is required, the exact required visa should be checked with the local sending office. The programme length is 90 days.

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.
