Church Movements Infographic

At OMF, we pray, partner, and work towards grace-fueled, authentic local, Biblical, multiplying, missional churches for all of East Asia’s peoples.

But what does that look like practically…?

01-Pray

Pray: When an unreached people is identified, we believe that the most powerful first step is to lift them up in prayer to God.

02-Learn

Learn: We value learning about their language, culture, history, their challenges, and what makes them unique in God’s eyes.

03-Engage

Engage: Then it’s about moving in to live in their communities, making friends with neighbours, sharing meals and experiences before we earn the right to share about Jesus.

04-Share

Share: About Jesus in a way that is meaningful and embraces all of life.

05-Church

Church: As people respond to the gospel and grow into communities of Christians, we encourage and support the growing church movement.

06-Mission

Mission: As the church shares the good news with their own people they also begin reaching out in mission to other peoples.
