Serve Asia (3 weeks to 11 months):
OMF’s short-term programme, called ‘Serve Asia’ is a challenging programme for anyone who is seeking God’s will for his or her future. Serve Asia workers have opportunities with local people, serve in churches, observe and learn some of the skills of church planting or teaching English as a foreign language, learn the country’s language, assist missionary families, share Christ, and use their musical talents and other skills.
It is our desire that each Serve Asia participant is part of an intentional discipleship process as they serve with OMF International. We walk with our participants through screening, training, service time, debriefing, follow-up and integrating this experience into their lives. We hope to see Serve Asia workers grow in relationship with Christ as well as with teammates, hosts and national friends. Along the way they will gain an understanding of East Asia’s peoples and become involved in God’s pursuit of his glory among all peoples.
