To bring the Gospel to the various people groups of Israel—Romans 1:16.
You will be challenged to draw closer to God as you trust Him to show you how to share your faith with the various people groups that inhabit the Land of Israel. This includes Jewish people (the whole spectrum from secular to traditional to ultra-orthodox), Arabic-speaking peoples (both Muslims and nominal Christians), and others, among them visitors to Israel from all over the world. Emphasis is on team building and a variety of outreach activities as a group. You will work in conjunction with our OM Israel short and long-term staff.
The ministry and outreaches will be varied but may include literature distribution, conversation outreaches in public places, creative events involving worship, plus practical work and mercy ministry involving the homeless, addicted, immigrants and others. Many of the details will be decided close to the commencement of the program, so as to take advantage of unique witnessing opportunities that will arise.
The key quality is to be flexible, as things change all the time in Israel! Applicants need to be team players with servant hearts, considerate of others, and should be able to cope with a good deal of walking and lots of steps.
Must be able to navigate lots of steps, hills, and walking distances.
Accommodation at times is basic, mostly in Youth Hostel type lodging.
Communal preparation of meals, as well as shopping and clean up. Occasional sack lunches and meals out should be expected.
