Across OM, we have a strong need for individuals gifted in administration to aid ministry taking place on the mission field. Those with administrative skills are needed in almost every facet of ministry to ensure that outreaches, meetings and programmes operate with efficiency, and that tasks, paperwork and coordination involved in organising people and events is accomplished with completeness and attention to detail. If this describes how God has wired you, consider here how you can use your administrative gifts to see more vibrant communities of Jesus followers established among the least reached.

-Assisting in arranging visas, permits, school registrations, and accommodation for the team.
-Improve skills and efficiency of the Personnel Department and relationships with home agencies.
-Offer ongoing support to mid-long term workers on the field
-Encourage local believers to serve in mission by supporting them through applications, training, support raising and paperwork

OM Greece asks all of its members to commit to learning Greek, and the initial months of every OMer’s time in Greece is used for cultural adaptation and language training. The role in the personnel department will not necessarily be full time, and any available working hours should be spent doing some other form of ministry.
As long as possible
Si Dios puede hablar a un creyente de la fe nacional, y moverlo a cruzar continentes para compartir el amor de Jesús con otros refugiados, a pesar de los peligros y las dificultades, ¿qué más podrá Él lograr con más obreros preparados para tomar los mismos riesgos por el evangelio?
If God can speak to a national faith believer, and move him to cross continents to share his love for Jesus with other refugees, despite dangers and difficulties, what more might He achieve with more workers prepared to take the same risks for the gospel?
