Going Short Term

Going

Get first hand experience of mission and make a difference for God in East Asia.  Join a 1-6 week summer team working alongside our missionaries in East Asia, or head out on an individual placement for up to 11 months.

Why Go?

If you’re prepared to move out of your comfort zoneexpand your horizons and make a difference, we’ll find the right short-term programme for you, for the appropriate length of time.

All programmes provide teams and individuals with the opportunity to spend time in East Asia and to find out what it’s like to take the gospel to those who wouldn’t otherwise get to hear it.

How to Go

Short-Term Teams

Spend 2-6 life-changing weeks alongside OMF workers. Get involved in sports ministries, prayer and evangelism, English teaching, student work or children’s camps.

As part of a team you will: experience East Asia, share the gospel through friendships, meet Asian believers, make new Christian friends and assist OMF missionaries of various nationalities.

There are also opportunities to see what it’s like in countries that are currently closed to traditional church planting.

If you know a group of people from your church or CU who would like to serve with you, let us custom make a trip to a missionary you support, or to help meet another need that we have.

Vision Trips

A 1-3 week way to explore what God is doing in East Asia, having your eyes opened, faith encouraged and prayer life stretched. Teams can be church groups, CUs, etc.

Individual Placement

If you interested in mission to East Asia, are willing to try new things you can experience East Asia for up to  11 months on an OMF individual placement, serving alongside experienced long-term workers.

We will build a custom trip to match your skills and personality. Let us know your availability and what you’d like to be involved in and we’ll help work out a programme.

The Cost

Serve Asia trips normally cost £1250-£1600 depending on length of trip and destination.
