You can be a part of what God is doing in France!
There will be workshops to train you in the methods to be used during the week and to give you some context for the local cultural and spiritual climate. During the outreach we will meet for daily prayer, worship, and devotional times. Ministry activities with church members will run from Monday to Saturday.
There will also be a day of rest and tourism.

Participant profile
:

If one word could describe your profile, it would be HUMBLE, see participants profile Philippians 2:5-8. Are ready to serve your Maker in whatever way He requires of you? We are looking for participants with a servant-heart, ready to be taught by and used by God during this project. You need to be prepared to work as a part of a team. Your team will likely be multi-cultural, so you should be ready to adapt, and accept differences in others.
Although not obligatory, knowledge of French would be an advantage, to help communication with the local church and contacts in the street.

Accommodation
:

During the conference accommodation will be at the conference centre, or nearby.
During the outreach you will be housed either at the church, or in church members’ homes. You may need to bring an inflatable mattress and bedding. We will confirm this in the last few weeks before the start.

Food
:

During Transform all meals will be provided, except for the evening meal on the 13th of July on outreach in the city.
During the outreach most meals will be in the church or in church members’ homes. You should be prepared to help with meal preparation and clean-up.

Travel
:

You need to book and pay for your own travel to the conference in Barcelona on the 10th of July, from Barcelona to Lorient on the 15th of July and from the outreach back home on the 23rd of July. We will help if necessary with finding the most economic travel option.

The conference will take place in the area of Barcelona. Detailed information about travel to the conference site will be given to you by your local OM office.
More info in 'notes'.

Health
:

Participants should be in reasonably good health, ready for an intense week. Any special needs (food allergies, special diet, a good bed due to back problems, etc.) must be communicated as early as possible so that organisers can prepare to receive that person! Each participant should arrange personal medical insurance to cover the period of the outreach.

Visa
:

Some participants may require a visa. Those participants will need to begin their application process with the OM office in their country at least one month in advance of the application deadline given here. Please contact the OM office in your country for more information.

Notes
:

The address of the church we will be meeting at will be communicated to you at a later point.

Travel options:
We will send you a “recommended travel” document as soon as the outreach destination has been finalised!
