OMF is serving the church, sharing the gospel. OMF partners with 2,500+ workers from over 40 nations to serve more than 100 East Asian people groups.
From Hudson Taylor and the C.I.M to our current ministry as OMF, see how God has been at work globally to bring East Asia’s people into his kingdom.
Sending is a team activity. We partner with churches, local organisations and other mission agencies to place people to serve.
We support the growth of the East Asian church, serve its communities and take the good news of Jesus to people that have not heard it.
East Asian people are as diverse as the region's landscape. Each country is unique while possessing resilience and beauty. Learn more about East Asia now.
We'll journey in mission with you as you discover some of the ways you can be part of God's global mission to reach all nations with the gospel.
Your prayers for the world make a real difference. Prayer has and continues to be at the heart of our efforts to share the good news of Jesus.
Join OMF's upcoming events designed to educate, inspire, and help believers around the world find their place in missions.
Serve Asia is OMF’s short-term missions programme for those who want to serve East Asia’s peoples for up to 12 months.
Your prayers, financial support and friendship can provide essential help needed for OMF workers to flourish in cross-cultural work.
