Urban Cross-Cultural Evangelist

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.
