Ministry details

The School of Evangelism is a 3 month apprenticeship style training programme aimed at making disciples. God has brought the world to our doorstep and many in our local communities have no significant contact with the gospel. The School of Evangelism has a clear focus on engaging with these groups, which is also part of OM’s wider vision to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached. We will provide you with excellent classroom study combined with outreach to a wide range of people within our urban communities, including the marginalised, refugees, ethnic minorities, atheists and nominal Christians. You will be mentored as part of a multinational team serving alongside experienced evangelists and disciple-makers.
