Role of National Director OMF Nederland

‘Alles begint met aanbidding’ (‘Everything begins with worship’) is OMF Nederland’s summary of their focus and identity. Our vision is, by God’s grace, to see a movement of East Asians and Dutch Christians joining together, worshipping together, and growing in their knowledge of God in order to serve Him and make Him known.

OMF is an international and interdenominational mission founded as China Inland Mission by James Hudson Taylor in 1865. OMF Nederland makes known the spiritual needs of East Asians. We encourage, stimulate, and coach Christians who know God’s call on their lives to His service, to bring them to the place He has prepared for them.

Place within the organization

OMF Nederland (NL) is a part of OMF International. Our mission is, to the glory of God, to implement, within the Dutch context, OMF’s mission to share the good news of Jesus

Christ in all its fullness with East Asia’s peoples. We expect the director to be fully aligned to this mission.

The director has the responsibility for the organisation, delegated by the board. The director is accountable to the OMF International Director for Europe and Africa and to the OMF Nederland Board, whilst working with a high degree of autonomy. In The Netherlands the director works together with a passionate team of coordinators and staff workers.

Working as a national director of OMF Netherlands has several blessed privileges. You hear firsthand what God is doing in Asia and among East Asia’s peopleto awe of God. Working as a fellowship means to serve the same Master and can join together in prayer and learning. No working day is the same, you get the chance to lead in strategic thinking and at the same time be involved in practical operational challenges.

Current main challenges

In the first place OMF NL requires a leader who stands firm on the Word of God and is convinced of the counter cultural nature, and unchanging urgency of, the missional mandate for God’s people. One of the main challenges of OMF NL is making missions relevant in a post-Christian society and developing the organisation. Due to organizational growth and an encouraging number of people sent to ministry with East Asians we often work beyond our resources. Therefore, we need a strong operational leader with organizational insight.

Core responsibilities

The core responsibilities of the OMF NL National Director are in the areas of: Spiritual Leadership, Visionary Leadership, Operational Leadership, Missional Ambassador.

The role of the OMF NL ND is extensive and demanding. They will not only lead OMF NL but work as part of OMF International and also oversee OMF Belgium. It is not expected that the future ND will already be proficient in all of the core responsibilities but will have a posture of growth and skill development. Considering the size of the task the role encourages delegation to or collaboration with others within the OMF NL leadership team. The OMF leaders (International Director for Europe and Africa and the OMF NL Board) are committed to support and facilitate the ND to grow towards the fulfilment of these tasks.
