Emerging Mission Movements
Until 1980, most mission workers came from Europe or North America. But today, God is building His church in Latin America, Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe, and the Church in these areas has caught the vision for world evangelisation. Now, nations that used to receive missionaries are sending them.
Since our beginning, we have committed to mobilising Christians from all nations to fulfil the Great Commission. Currently, 98 nations are represented in OM, and over 65 percent are from new sending nations. We seek to enable Christians from these areas to find their role in global missions by mobilising the Church, training and equipping believers, providing opportunities to serve and sending and supporting workers around the world.
Mobilising the Church
OM partners with the Church to empower believers in Latin America, Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe, and mobilises the Church in these areas to find its role in local and world missions.
Training and Equipping Believers
OM serves the Church by training and equipping believers to use their gifts to bring transformation to their own communities and to those around the world.
Providing Opportunities to Serve
Together with the Church, OM provides opportunities to serve, enabling more from Latin America, Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe to find their place in world missions, and encouraging more from Europe and North America to partner with the growing Church in these new sending nations.
Sending and Supporting Workers
With more than 5,500 workers in over 110 countries, OM has the capacity to open doors for ministry around the world that will allow anyone the chance to serve in missions. OM enables workers to go to some of the most distant and difficult places.
