What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Prayer - outstretched

The team will lead local leaders in an ethnoarts workshop and equip them in the basic audiovisual skills needed for documenting new songs and dances. Then, the local leaders and OM Arts team will travel to a nearby village where the local leaders will facilitate an ethnoarts workshop. The OM Arts team will serve as mentors.

 

“Ethnodoxologistsstudy how peoples around the world worship God and encourage them to create in response to God’s work in their lives” (Robin Harris).
Attendees of thisethnoarts workshop are leaders and musicians in their churches. The team will facilitate an ethnoarts workshop to encourage Scripture songs and dances that are culturally relevant to the ethnic groups present. As part of this workshop, the team will record new songs and dances and mentor the participants in the skills needed to make simple recordings. 
Certain key participants from the first workshop received ethnodoxology training in previous years. The goal on this project is to have them, first, experience an ethnoarts workshop.

All applicants must be flexible and able to adapt. Relationships are critical in the host culture, requiring team members to engage relationally with little time alone during the trip. In addition, we are looking for those qualified for several specific roles:

  •  Leader-in-training: Applicant will be mentored under the team leader.
  • Ethnodoxologist: Applicant will facilitate and oversee the workshops. He or she should have academic training in ethnomusicology or ethnoarts, experience leading songwriting workshops, and be able to train others.
  • Audiovisual specialist: Applicant will need to bring his/her own equipment and have adequate skills to create demo-level recordings, able to adapt to any setting. Specialist will need to train local people in basic skills using equipment they already have in country, such as cell phones.
  • Intercessor: Applicant should have a passion for prayer.

All short-term project team participants will be expected to participate in pre-trip training/preparation.

Mission Trip Offered By Operation Mobilization

The lives of 3 Billion people alive today will end without them ever hearing the Gospel.
This is not by choice, but simply because they are too remote or denied access. Many also live in the world’s most underprivileged regions, meaning that physical and spiritual poverty are skyrocketing in tandem.

The missions models which served us well for decades can no longer keep pace and therefore we are actively innovating new methods that will change this reality. We SEND and equip believers to go places where Jesus is not yet known. We SERVE those in need with things like medical care, emergency relief, education and job skills. We SHARE by proclaiming the teachings of Jesus, providing discipleship training and supplying resources like bibles.

Our vision is to see a community of Jesus followers within reach of everyone, everywhere.

We know that this task is too huge to do alone, so we invite individuals, churches and other organizations who share our heart for those with little or no access to the Gospel to join us.

Is God calling you to join the movement?
