About Serve Asia
Serve Asia is OMF’s short-term missions discipleship program that equips individuals for cross-cultural missions, giving them an opportunity to support long-term workers and catch a vision for potential long-term ministry.
- Participate in an individual or team placement in Asia. Find out more about Serve Asia Opportunities here.
- Catch a vision for future long-term ministry.
- Support long-term workers on the field.
- Use your skillset and passion to serve God.
- Be part of a discipleship community where individuals both locally and abroad invest in your journey.
As part of the missions discipleship program, the Serve Asia team is not only invested in individuals while they are on the field, but also in training participants before they go and then debriefing them when they return to Canada. Our hope is that individuals cultivate a lifelong desire to serve God and share the good news wherever He leads them.
