Training and Retreats for Diaspora

It’s not as easy as one might assume to go home again. It can be especially difficult to know how to live as follower of Jesus in your home country.

OMF provides training, retreats and conferences for East Asian believers returning to their home countries.

If you are a believer preparing to return to East Asia or work with believers who may return soon, please contact us for more information about possible retreats and conferences near you.

Training for Churches & Organisations

Reaching Your East Asian Neighbor equips people to befriend internationals and build bridges into the local international community.

Learn about cross-cultural friendship building, explore the strategic importance of ministry to internationals, and discover ways to support new believers to follow Christ even as they return to their home countries or move to other countries.
If you would like training to help your church or organization become more effective in understanding and reaching East Asians, please contact us!

“The training day was the best of its kind that I have ever been to. I have been attended a fair number, having been working for Global Cafe for about seven years in either a voluntary or paid capacity."

"The content was concise, extremely clear and pitched at just the right level. I could actually see the wood for the trees, which was a new and refreshing experience, as usually I find myself bogged down in the detail.” Attendee of a training day in Leeds."
