WAYS TO GO
1. SHORT-TERM (Serve Asia)
What is Serve Asia?
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.
Our Vision: We aim to see present and long-term kingdom impact in and through short-term workers and their sending communities, contributing to indigenous biblical church movements among East Asia’s people groups, resulting in the global worship of Jesus Christ to the glory of God.
Who can participate?
All Serve Asia participants must be Faithful, Available, Intentional, Teachable and have a Heart for God (FAITH). Adult participants from 18 years old and above are welcome to apply.
National Teams: These teams include four to eight people from all over the Philippines who train and serve together.
Church Partnership Teams: These teams include four to eight people from your church or fellowship group partnering with our long-term ministry in Asia through a short-term trip.
Individual Placements: This placement is for an individual, married couple or family considering serving long-term, offering a skill to use on the field or seeking to fulfill an internship.
We have short-term programs to other East Asia countries.
2. MID to LONG TERM
Called to go to Asia for more than a year?
Mid-Term (1-3 Years)
Spend one to three years of your life serving in cross-cultural ministry. Sometimes called “mid-termers,” Explorers get a taste of what it is like on the missions field. From learning language and culture to living life among the people to whom God has called you, see what a life radically devoted to making Jesus’ name known is all about. Who knows, three years could turn into a lifetime of service.
Long-Term (3+ Years)
Commit your life serving among an unreached people group in East Asia. Plant churches, train leaders, lead Bible studies or work among children, youth and students to bring the gospel to the rich and poor, deprived and privileged. Use your professional skills to reach peoples otherwise unreachable. Engage in community development, bringing justice to the poor and marginalized. Change whole communities through a lifelong pursuit of demonstrating Christ through word and deed.
