Country Profile: Papua New Guinea
In 1990, after 11 years of missionary burden sparked by the first visit of the Logos 1 in 1979 there was a growing awareness and interest among the Christians churches in PNG to reach the unreached.
Our mission statement.
OMPNG is an international interdenominational christian fellowship committed to partnership with PNG churches to help challenge, train and send PNGers to serve as missionaries in OM fields overseas.
1.To encourage the PNG churches through mission awareness programmes to catch the vision of world missions.
2. To train PNGers to serve in OM fields in the 10/40 window countries and the ships.
3. To work in Partnership with the PNG churches to help gain a vision for missions and send out and support their missionaries.
We run a yearly orientation programme for new recruits for a month that covers introduction to world religions, culture, food, language, and OM values and ethos for people who want to join OM PNG and serve on the field.
We also take church meetings all year around and speak at camps, bible colleges and other groups as well.
Once a year we are involved with a mission conference run at Christian Leaders Training College for studenst and Pastors all over the nation. We use our returning missionaries to speak at these meetings.
Prayer. We are involved in praying for the world through the church. We send out prayer information to churches and individuals who are interested in countries God lays on their heart to pray for. We also share at meetings about praying for the world in the churches and other important prayer gatherings.
We are believing and trusting God for an OMPNG base that will accommodate both the office space and accommodation for our staff. Presently we are renting a property for office space and accommodation as well.
The office is run by a team of five people. We have a very small team and are praying for more locals to join the office to serve the ever growing interst of PNGers going on the mission field.
Our dream is that one day OMPNG will become the sending centre for missionaries from PNG to other nations.
