What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

The Florence STEP (Short Term Exposure Program) is a unique opportunity for individuals to serve God in Florence, SC, USA at the OM Ships International campus.  It is ideal for those with little, or no, missions experience and those looking to improve their English.  Our desire is that participants learn and grow in their Christian walk and have their eyes and hearts opened to what God is doing through OM Ships.  It is also an opportunity to seek the Lord for their next steps.  We hope that each participant will leave with a better understanding of ministry and the part they have to play.

During this 2-3 month program participants will:
• Serve in our Ministry Center sorting & packing books.  Other service opportunities are available on an individual basis depending on the person’s expertise.
• Participate in the OM Ships Florence team life and interact with our international OM missionary staff
• Experience the American culture and have the opportunity to visit one or two nearby cities (Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Charlotte)
• Improve their English (if appropriate)
• Visit local churches and/or participate in a local church

Participants will serve daily at the OM Ships Ministry Center.  The team receive, sort, pack and ship Bibles and other Christian literature that will be sold in the Logos Hope Book fair, via the internet or to book stores around the world. 

Participants will be involved in practical service from Mondays – Fridays from 8:30am – 5pm.  They will also be fully involved in OM team life including weekly team devotions, prayer meetings and prayer times, monthly birthday celebrations and other occasional team events.

Participants have opportunities for growth through shared cross-cultural living arrangements.  Participants should expect to share a house, bedroom (not a bed) and bathroom with others of the same gender.  Both houses are fully equipped with kitchen, laundry and internet facilities.  Evenings and weekends are usually free but there are many opportunities for church involvement and social activities within the OM team and local community.

Participants should come with a love for Jesus and a desire to serve Him in a practical way.  They need to be sufficiently fit to be on their feet all day every day and, preferably, able to lift boxes of books.  They should  be able to take care of themselves without supervision.

Couples are welcome if both spouses are planning to engage with the ministry.  We are unable to have families unless the children are either home-schooled or on vacation.  There would need to be a willingness for the whole family to engage with the ministry to some extent.

 


 

Participants should be in reasonably good health and should notify us of any dietary or medical conditions during the application process so that we can make necessary arrangements.

Please inquire for more information on this outreach.

Please keep in mind that due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, any opportunities with OM could potentially be altered for 2021.  Our placement team will keep you updated with all relevant information relating to changes in opportunities because of COVID-19.

Mission Trip Offered By Operation Mobilization

We are watchful of what’s happening around the world. Operation Mobilization USA will continue to prepare you for the field, mindful that this season will pass. We will take you as far in the process as possible, recognizing that there may be roadblocks due to COVID19. We are still 100% engaged in our mission and feel strongly that we have been called to situations like these. We are moving forward prayerfully and with discernment. We are responding to the advice of government and healthcare officials and taking precautions to care for our workers and those we serve. If we hear from our international teams that any opportunities should be postponed or cancelled, we will promptly let you know.

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 worlds 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?
