We want to help you “Explore”! Our heart is for equipping and preparing believers to become disciples, through Bible teaching, evangelism training, outreach events and serving in France.
What is God’s calling on your life? Come and explore what God says in the Bible, as well as the many facets of growing in faith and communicating it, especially to those furthest from the Gospel in France and Europe.
The training uses OM France's vision of the three dimensions of the least reached in Europe as a base: ethnic, geographical and generational. Ethnic awareness: reaching out to people living in France and Europe who come from regions of the world with the least access to the Gospel; Geographic outreach: deliberately targeting the growth of the Church in those parts of France where it is least present; Generational awareness: today, few young people have any notion of absolute truth. Together, you will develop an effective way of making biblical truth known. And you'll put it into practice! Our aim is to equip you for Bible study, provide you with practical tools for evangelism and give you the opportunity to put your newly acquired skills into practice in the field. You'll discover the life of an international team – with its joys and struggles!
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 French as this is the language in which the training will be conducted.
Participants should be generally fit, not requiring intensive medical care.
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).
Participants will cook for themselves in the kitchen facilities at the OM France base. Participants must come with a minimum monthly food allowance of 300 EUR each per month as they will need to buy their own meals with this allowance. THIS COST IS NOT REFLECTED IN THE OVERALL PRICE.
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.
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.
