Since the early beginnings of OM, we have been passionate about equipping people for missions. OM offers discipleship training placements which are diverse and vary in length from several months to 2 years.

The aim of each placement is to invest in you through quality training, mentoring and ministry experience, to expand your worldview and to prepare you for a missional life, making disciples of others, wherever God calls you. We focus on growing you in your journey as a follower of Christ and equipping you to be His Ambassador to the nations.

Mentoring in OM is hands-on, side-by-side, walking in faith to see each other develop and grow as God has gifted us. It's walking together, not just talking. Be prepared for an intensive but rewarding experience.

Here are some examples of discipleship training opportunities we have offered:

REACH programmes (formerly MDT)

REACH programmes offer an exciting introduction to cross cultural mission while helping you to deepen your relationship with God and grow in discipleship. Several OM teams offer a diverse programme and each will include mentoring, training, community life and outreach. You could be in the UK, Ireland, Europe, Moldova, Romania, Turkey, South Africa… To read more details and view the different REACH opportunities click here.
