Global Mobilization

Mobilizing is coming alongside people to help them move from where they are to where God wants them to be. When invited by local leaders, OC facilitates local bodies of believers to identify, train, and send global workers toward realizing a “from everywhere to everywhere” vision.

What Mobilization Looks Like:

  • We Equip Local Churches to Identify, Train & Send Mission Workers
  • KAIROS – A 9 Session Discipleship Training Program
  • Perspectives – A Comprehensive Study Course that is Rooted in the Scriptures

What is Your “Experience” Ministry Like?

Time Commitment: 1 Week – 3 Months

Our “Experience” ministry trips are focused on deepening your experience in three ways. We want you to start to understand a new culture and way of life. We provide opportunities for ministry alongside mission workers and locals in that country. We want you to get to know us as a service ministry; what we do, how we do it, and why. These trips are fast-paced and focused. The cost for our experience trips are around $35/day plus airfare and travel insurance.

How Long Are Your “Explore” Ministry Opportunities?

Explore (short-term) ministry commitments are more than six months and up to two years long.

What Can I Expect on an “Explore” Experience?

Time Commitment: 6 Months – 2 Years

An “Explore” ministry experience is designed to help you get a taste for what life as a long-term mission worker is like. Different from the Experience trip, Explore places you on one of our ministry teams, involved in active and ongoing ministry. Developing relationships with teammates and locals is a major focus alongside some language and culture learning. Explore workers can expect to raise money for a salary, benefits, and ministry costs.

What is the “Engage” ministry?

Time Commitment: 2+ Years

Engage workers can expect an extended application, interview, and training process.

  • Support-Raised Salary
