The conference includes an outreach in Athens where conference participants put into practice the training received.
The Transform Conference is a unique opportunity to meet and hear international speakers, and intercultural mission practitioners from the fields in the Mediterranean.
For the past 2 years OM Albania has been helping a small local church in the village of Gorre, Albania. Recently the church has renovated their building and can now house a team of up to 35 people. The pastor of this church has a passion/vision to reach all of the surrounding villages near Gorre. The villages are made up of primarily Greek Orthodox or Muslim families.
The surrounding area near the village of Gorre has a population of about 80,000 people and there is only 2 churches. The team will be split into groups and we plan on targeting the local villages near Gorre. The team will be working primarily with kids and youth. In the evening, we plan on having a time of reflections to hear what God has Done that day.
As we learn how to follow Jesus more closely individually and as a team in this Journey, we will do various trainings or teachings to help in the areas of spiritual and leadership development and will also be practical by ministering in a variety of ways in three different locations in the north of Albania (Koplik, Bajram Curri) and a location possible in Kosovo for about a week at each place. We want to be a part of relevantly impacting each of the areas we go to, strengthening and encouraging local church leaders by helping in the areas of ministry where needed. Even though we are in each area a short time, we believe this time can have eternal impact! We desire to hear God’s voice and to know His heart for us, Albania, and how we are to be a part of His Kingdom work even after this month together!
As the Turkey Summer Outreaches happen, join the front lines to cover each team with daily intercession and encouragement on site.

What do you need to survive for 2 weeks in an unreached land? A backpack, sturdy walking shoes, and a whole lot of faith. Fill your pack with just the necessities and lots of Bible to hitchhike with a buddy through Western Turkey. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you as you bring His Word to the least reached.
*Men only 18-68
Journey with your team around the least reached country in the world, Turkey, to be one of the first to to bring the Good News of Jesus to those living here. Listen to the Holy Spirit, and follow His lead as He arranges the people you will meet and where you will stay.

We are simply aiming TO BE for Roma people, to live with them, attend their church services, listen to their stories and music, what they’re passionate about and the disappointments they’ve had, play with the kids and youth, pray for old and sick people, live a simple lifestyle, be a friend to the Gypsies.
