Ministry Details

Come ready for anything! It starts with an induction into life in the UK and training sessions on public speaking and how to present creatively, using multimedia presentations where appropriate. You'll share in church services, conferences, and university meetings, and run book tables. You will be expected to take an active part in OM UK team life at The Quinta.  This could look like book-keeping, driving, team leading and administration tasks. Working hours will be flexible. We will aim to give you 2 days off per week, but sometimes it may be 1.5 or 1 day. The 3 months will wrap up with team debrief and reflection back at The Quinta.

Participant Profile

You've been with OM for at least 6 months and you're a team-player! You have a passion for God and global mission, and you love sharing about opportunities to be involved in what God is doing around the world through OM.  You want to encourage believers to step out, whether for the very first time or taking a second or third step. You have a good command of the English language.

Accommodation

You will be based at OM's Head Office at The Quinta – in Shropshire but on the Welsh border. You will stay in a guest flat surrounded by beautiful countryside, a great team and sometimes some sheep too!  There is easy access to road and rail links. The role involves a lot of travelling around the UK, and when travelling you'll most likely be staying in people's homes.

Food

While at the Quinta food is provided for you to make your own meals. When travelling there is an allowance for necessary meals and snacks.

If you have any dietary requirements, please let us know in advance.
