Mentoring includes training and the transfer of skills and knowledge, but it’s so much more. It’s a witness to an open life worthy of imitation—perhaps an older, experienced person ‘holding the ladder’ for a younger colleague.
It may be someone with a particular gifting patiently helping others to believe that they can attempt and succeed at something new.
In OM, we esteem all backgrounds and cultures because we know we can learn from each other. Mentoring in OM isn’t just a trendy word; it’s hands-on, side-by-side, walking in faith to see each other develop and grow as God has gifted us. It’s walk, not talk.
The typical limitations of too few church leaders serving too many young believers means there’s an acute need for mentors in every OM ministry. We want mentors who are also students:
humble…patient…encouraging…believing…ready to open their Bibles and their lives.
We want people whose love for the people they serve is more widely known than their expertise. Most of all, we want godly mentors who will coach and develop more mentors who see it not as a ministry, but as the best way of life.
Come and teach us. Come and learn from us.
MENTORING AND DISCIPLESHIP VIDEOS:
Our team in Israel is looking for people with a passion to see new churches planted among the least-reached, churches that are making disciples who are in turn making other disciples. Experience in this area is valued, but not necessary to join.
As an accountant on the mission field with OM, you will use your financial management skills toward the purpose of seeing vibrant communities of Jesus followers established among the least reached.
Across OM, we have a strong need for individuals gifted in administration to aid ministry taking place on the mission field.
With a population of 83 million, of whom 99% are lost, how do you find the key people who will bring Jesus to their own family, friends and community.
