The purpose of Factor is to give people the opportunity to come and serve practically in Brussels, the capital of Europe. Participants will be serving in practical ways at OM Belgium’s hospitality centre while also diving into discipleship and mentorship relationships to grow deeper in their faith. During this 3 month programme, participants will rub shoulders with volunteers and missionaries from around the world who come from different walks of life and will experience what world missions is all about. Through Factor, participants will grow spiritually, emotionally and forever be impacted by God's love.

Factor is a three month volunteer discipleship experience in Belgium, the heart of Europe. This programme is a portal for exposure to world missions, the chance to make a difference through practical service, and to be personally discipled. Opportunities to travel to the Netherlands, France, Germany and Luxembourg are possible as part of the mentoring programme.

If you apply for option 2, you will have the opportunity to volunteer at TeenStreet 2019 in Germany and at the GO Conference in the Netherlands. Costs for these have been added in to the outreach cost. Please ask for more information on these conferences if you're interested in option 3.
