Training and Retreats for Diaspora

It’s not as easy as one might assume to go home again. It can be especially difficult to know how to live as follower of Jesus in your home country.

OMF provides training, retreats and conferences for East Asian believers returning to their home countries.

If you are a believer preparing to return to East Asia or work with believers who may return soon, please contact us for more information about possible retreats and conferences near you.

Training for Churches & Organisations

Witnessing to your neighbour from East Asia builds relationships and bridges to the local international community.
Learn how to build cross-cultural friendships, explore the strategic importance of ministering to internationals, and discover ways to help new believers follow Christ even as they return to their home country or move to other countries.
If you would like to take a training course to help your church or organisation become more effective in its witness to East Asians, please contact us!

Who is the training for?

- Churches
- Student Campus Ministries/Christian Unions
- Organisations


"The training day was the best of its kind that I have attended. I've attended quite a few of them, as I've been working for Global Cafe for about seven years, both as a volunteer and as an employee."
"The content was concise, extremely clear and right on target. I was able to enjoy seeing the big picture, which was a new and refreshing experience, as I usually get bogged down in the details."
