Transforming lives and communities

Ministry opportunities in the Philippines

OM Philippines started in the 1970s mainly as a sending office. Today, we serve as a Home Office and are involved in mercy ministries among children and deprived sectors of society. 

Our vision is to see Christ-centred lives and communities reproducing and becoming catalysts of transformation.

OM Philippines works in partnership with churches and organizations, both globally and locally, toward transforming lives and communities through evangelism and discipleship, mission mobilization, cross-cultural training and community help among the unreached and marginalized.

 

Our programmes:

  • Student ministry: This is in partnership with the University Baptist Church, a church with a student center with weekly programmes for evangelism, prayer and counselling.
  • Urban poor ministry:
    • Adults: Bible studies for the adults in our children outreach communities.
    • Youth: Weekly Bible Studies and fellowship programmes are done for the youth both from our various outreaches in the communities and churches.
    • Children: Weekly outreach in their communities, weekly feeding programme in our center, and annual programmes (eg. distribution of school supplies, Christmas parties, sportsfeasts, etc.)
  • Education:
    • ALS (Alternative Learning System):  A government programme for out of school youth to help them catch up and continue in their education.  OM Philippines facilitate the implementation of the programmes in a holistic manner integrated in our ministry called, “Path of Life Ministries”.  Currently, this ministry is in Cebu, Manila and Palawan with plans for expansions in other ministry locations.
    • Scholarship programme: We help deserving but underprivileged children and youth finish their schooling.  We do not only provide financial and educational help but we also provide them social and spiritual guidance. 
  • Sports ministry: A weekly basketball game with the youth from our partner church in Taytay and its surrounding community.
  • Muslim ministry: A new ministry reaching out to a seaside community of a mixed group of Muslim tribes in southern Philippines.
  •  Community Development: Working among under-privileged and tribal communities to organize the people for capacity building and sustainable livelihood, especially following a major disaster or social events.
  • Relief and Development: Being in a country that it frequently hit by natural disasters, we are committed to helping affected communities to rebuild their lives by building them transitional housing, providing training and post disaster care.
  • Missions Mobilisation:  We run an annual cross-cultural missions training and exposure open to local and foreign participants.  We also conduct Mission’s training such as Kairos, Harvest Connection and Higher Purpose for our foreign workers and to individuals, churches and other organizations.

    • 86% do not have enough resources, organizational sustainability, or community impact

    • 1% have more capacity for impact to transform the nation and engage in international missions.
