Ministry details

10th to 15th July 2017 – central conference in Cambrils, Spain
15th July 2017 – travel from Barcelona to outreach location (final destination will be confirmed later)
15th July 2017 to 23 July – outreach in the south of France!
Would you go a kilometre to give someone a gospel? What about 2km to give 2? We will be part of a team taking gospels and kids’ booklets to the very last houses in some of the remotest hamlets of the Cantal region in France – in 2015 we travelled 3000km and delivered 3000 gospel packs!
This will be an intense week of service and growth, with an emphasis placed on discipling future leaders and missionaries.

Participant profile
:

For participant profile see Philippians 2:5-8.

You need faith. You bring your spiritual gifts. We'll be using what God has given us, trusting that He will gather the perfect team! You will be required to complete an interview with the OM France outreach coordinator before you are accepted. You will also be expected to prepare yourself spiritually in advance, and commit to praying for the outreach and the region on a regular basis leading up to the outreach. You shouldn't even think about signing up for this outreach unless you are prepared to completely submit yourself to God. In fact, you should go away and pray NOW about whether this is the right thing for you.

We will only accept a limited number of participants, and each person attending will be offered the opportunity to be discipled during the year which follows.

Accommodation
:

During the conference we will be at the conference centre.

For the outreach we will probably be based out of a basic camp site in the heart of the countryside, though this is unsure. We will trust God to provide for our needs, so start praying now! It may be cold at night (5°C/40°F)! You will have to bring a sleeping bag/pillow/mattress/tent (update nearer the time). Bathroom facilities may be basic. Sounds extreme? Not compared to what Christ gave up for us.

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 this is unplanned! God may provide through the local church, or other means. It’s a step of faith! You will be challenged to provide for someone else's needs during the week.

Travel
:

You need to book and pay for your own travel to the conference in Barcelona on the 10th of July, from Barcelona to the outreach destination 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
:

You must be in reasonable health and ready for an intensive week of outreach. You are also required to have medical insurance for the duration of the outreach. Special diets may have to be compromised, so if this is a problem, you should consider one of our alternative outreaches.

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
:

It is also possible to sign up for the Retro Extreme non-Transform option, and take part in the outreach only.

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!
