Turning Point Lights of London (United Kingdom)

During the time you will receive training, which will equip you in basic Islamics and Christian doctrine. It is centered on the Muslim mindset and how to share the Gospel in a culturally sensitive way! It also includes International Team Life, in which you will have opportunities to cook, clean, pray and worship together! All teams will be living in CHURCHES, which means the accommodation won’t be five stars! OM is based on a ‘learn by doing’ process and you will get plenty of ‘street time’ to put into practice all you have learned. You could do anything from book-tables, to street work, to door-to-door, to video distribution, to the famous ‘Speakers Corner’ debate! You will find yourself doing things you never thought you could. Our first priority is to the church plants that we have in London; the Turkish/English church in North London, and the Arabic/English church in Central London. Our strategy and evangelism is based around these church plants, and is the reason for much of what we do.

Taiwan 2014 Christmas Outreach (Taiwan)

The mission of the Community Transformation Ministry (CTM) is to bring the Good News to least-reached people. The least-reached people group in Taiwan is Hakka because the population of Hakka Christian is only 0.3%.

The mission team will go to a small Hakka town and partner with local churches to reach out Hakka through creative ministry during Christmas time.

This outreach has three core purposes:
1. To challenge participants in their personal growth and purpose in life by actively experiencing missions in Taiwan.
2. To broadly reach out to Hakka people and tell them about Jesus.
3. To encourage existing the Hakka Christians to get more involved in active ministry.

HOPE OF ISRAEL WINTER 1 MONTH #CANCELLED# (Israel)

You will be challenged to draw closer to God as you trust Him to show you how to share your faith with the various people groups that inhabit the Land of Israel, including Jewish people (the whole spectrum from secular to traditional to ultra-orthodox), Arabic-speaking peoples (both Muslims and nominal Christians), and others (among them visitors to Israel from all over the world). Emphasis is on team building and a variety of outreach activities as a group, working in conjunction with our OM Israel short and long-term staff. This is the month-long option of OM Israel's winter outreach program. The first two weeks will be combined with those choosing the two-week option. The second half of the month-long option will draw upon the evangelism experience gained during the initial stage, and outreach activities will decidedly become more challenging. Participants will be encouraged to establish friendships with individuals they contacted during the initial period.
