Are you interested in missions? Have you thought about your place in the world?

‘Lähetä minut – Send Me’ is a weekend course for everyone who’s interested in missions. The course provides you with the opportunity to learn about the basic principles and practical aspects of missions. You’ll also meet OM Finland’s staff. You’ll have an excellent chance to learn and ask about different opportunities and the practical things of going into missions short term or for a longer period of time.

Send Me is held twice a year, every spring and autumn. Next course will be held on 1st-3rd October in Ikaalinen, at Koivikko retreat and conference centre.

Teaching language is Finnish but simultaneous interpretation into English can be provided in some of the weekends. Group discussions can be held in English. If you're interested in participating, ask about the availability of interpretation in your chosen weekend.

Contents of the weekend course:

During the course, we learn about the Biblical principles and other basic principles of missions. The course gives you a good opportunity to think about your own role as a ‘goer’ and as a supporter. In addition, you’ll learn about both the short-term and the long-term opportunities that OM has. You can talk to and connect with other people who are interested in missions, and also meet people who have been on the field. You’ll have an opportunity to put together your personal mission plan, which will play a central role during the weekend.

Goals for the weekend:

  • Clear understanding of your own calling.

  • Getting excited about and involved in missions.
