Job Description

The ministry of a mobiliser focuses on connecting and journeying with people who are considering serving God overseas, or supporting those who serve overseas. Most of these people are between the ages of 18 and 35, however we are also trying to connect with professionals, early retirees and people in business who are wondering how they can use their skills to serve God.

Our vision is to see more people engaging in reaching unreached peoples in East Asia. A mobiliser helps to achieve this by connecting with individuals and churches, to walk alongside them and help them take up opportunities to serve. This might happen through OMF events, by networking with others, or through mentoring. A mobiliser will not only encourage people to get involved in mission, but also help them to discern the type of ministry that is a best fit for them.

Our office is based in Sydney.

They will speak on behalf of OMF at locations such as churches or bible colleges, listening to people's stories, promoting opportunities, and following up inquirers with coaching/mentoring.

Qualifications

You must be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident.

The mission mobiliser must have a desire to partner with OMF; in line with OMF's Mission, Vision, Beliefs, and Values.

Experience serving on mission to East Asia is very valuable.

Further orientation will be provided by the State Ministry Leader and other members of the Home staff.

Living Situations

This is a position where you would need to raise your own financial support or work as a volunteer.
