For the last 30 years OM’s mission base in Halesowen has focussed on training and cross-cultural urban evangelism. Today, we don’t need to get on an aeroplane to meet the least reached, we have them on our doorstep. Locally we have large populations from Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. We need people who are willing to go to parts of the community where few are going; willing to begin to understand a different language and culture, share the Gospel and disciple new believers.
- Confidence in the power of the gospel to transform lives
- A heart to make disciples
- An interest in people from other cultures and languages and a willingness to engage with them
- Concern to serve the wider community and an openness to partner with a local church
- Willingness to learn
- A gift in communicating your faith
- Ability to speak English
- Experience in sharing God’s love in an urban context (preferred but not essential)
