OMF is serving the church, sharing the gospel. OMF partners with 2,500+ workers from over 40 nations to serve more than 100 East Asian people groups.
From Hudson Taylor and the C.I.M to our current ministry as OMF, see how God has been at work globally to bring East Asia’s people into his kingdom.
Sending is a team activity. We partner with churches, local organisations and other mission agencies to place people to serve.
We support the growth of the East Asian church, serve its communities and take the good news of Jesus to people that have not heard it.
