Great! Most of our short term outreaches cater for groups, and we can also customise a mission just for your team.



Don't Worry! You will be placed with a local OM team for the outreach. Most orientation takes place when you arrive and you’ll be part of a multinational team.

What’s different about OM Outreaches?

For over 50 years OM has been at the forefront of short term mission programmes, allowing people of all ages and backgrounds to share God’s love.  Short term mission provides an opportunity for Christians of all ages to share with those who don’t know Jesus, all over the world, by telling them what He means to you or by showing His love through practical help.


We want to see short term trips have a long term impact on you and the people you go to.

We have opportunities throughout the year for individuals and groups to join with local OM teams and share in making the message of the love of Christ known by word or action.You’ll be part of an international team led by our long term workers in the country. It is a unique opportunity to enjoy fellowship with Christians from around the world, as a fresh expression of the global dimension of the Church.

What people are saying about their Short-term experience with OM

  • "The camp was really well run; the leaders were very welcoming and appreciative of our efforts; there was a strong emphasis on unity and teamwork from the start, which was important with such a large and diverse group of volunteers; the children very much enjoyed the activities - with the mix of different sports, crafts and music there was something for everyone - and it was very encouraging to hear stories of some children responding to what was taught from the Bible each day. We were all assigned a group of children to be with throughout the week during the non-sports times and it felt by the end of the week that I had been able to form a friendship with the group of boys I was with, despite the language barrier."

  • "We had incredible opportunities to serve people with like-minded volunteers who share the same passion. A woman shared her story with me at the community centre how she had to cross from Turkey to Greece in a boat...she showed me a video of the experience and I told her I felt helpless that I couldn't fix the problem...she replied (via google translate) saying you've done more than enough by providing a listening ear, and she gave me a big hug! Thank you OM- I thoroughly enjoyed my time...a wonderful humbling, eye-opening, rewarding, inspiring time."

  • "Going to Thailand was a really good choice. The programme was varied and we had 3 people from OM/church full time with the team. Preparations of the church for the team visit was excellent. I was amazed at the openness to share the Gospel in Thai schools. We shared the Gospel message to over 1000 pupils, in 8 schools, in 3 days. It was absolutely fantastic. God is continually doing His amazing work of changing people's lives and communities and to be a part of it is a total privilege."
