This program runs for 3 months at a time with Trekkies and leaders living and learning about life together in a cross-cultural context. We live in a busy noisy world but Quiet time is encouraged on the Trek which helps one to reflect and practice listening to God. Trekkies take part in giving testimonies and sharing the gospel on planned evangelistic events and engage with communities in practical work. The unique part of Africa Trek is that it helps shape one in becoming an effective disciple maker and in turn producing vibrant communities of Jesus Followers.

The Africa Trek is run by working with Churches and OM bases in the different countries visited and together participating in the work of God going on in places visited.

This is for any Christian believer willing to step out of their comfort zone. Team player, self-motivated and someone ready to share life & learn new languages. Teachable and ready to grow & experience God on this adventure.

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 also provides an environment to increase the participant's cultural intelligence and to gain a better understanding about missions and church mobilization. We hope that each participant will leave with a better understanding of ministry and the part they can play on it.
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.
