Mission mobilisers aim to meet with people who are interested in mission and journey alongside them as they continue to take their next steps. We are looking for mission mobilisers based in Wollongong, Newcastle, or other regional areas.
Date: September 01, 2019 to August 31, 2020
The ministry of a mobiliser focuses on people who are willing to consider 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.
Mobilisers are able to work from home, connecting with the OMF team in Sydney. We are looking for people based in Wollongong, Newcastle, or other regional areas.
Mission mobilisers assist in promoting the needs and opportunities of OMF by inspiring and encouraging those interested in mission, and providing them with relevant information and contacts.
They will work closely with the State Ministry Leader in order to assess opportunities to promote OMF's work and allocation of resources.
They will work alongside various home staff, missionaries on home assignment, and appointees.
They will be involved in preparing for and attending OMF events and events where OMF is represented, such as ReachOut and NTE.
They will be involved in new or existing prayer groups locally, especially for those in regional areas.
They will speak on behalf of OMF at locations such as churches or bible colleges, listening to people's stories, promoting opportunities, and referring contacts to follow up.
They will be part of the follow up process by partnering with people who have an interest in mission, such as through starting prayer groups.
This is a part-time volunteer role that is flexible depending on the availability and location of the volunteer.
The mission mobiliser must have a desire to partner with OMF in support of mission; in line with OMF's Mission, Vision, Beliefs, and Values.
A friendly and outgoing personality is essential, as well as the ability to listen and relate well. Good public speaking abilities are valuable as sharing will be a large part of the role.
Experience from serving on short term mission to East Asia is very valuable.
Further orientation will be provided by the State Ministry Leader and other members of the Home staff.
The person must be willing to travel to events with occasional overnight stays. Travel and accommodation costs for these events will be covered by OMF.
At this time we are looking for people who are able to commit to a minimum of 1 year.
