What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Ukraine - fleeing 4.jpg

OM in Poland is providing aid and services meeting immediate needs of refugees crossing the border, offering psychosocial support and psychological first aid, supporting mothers and children fleeing Ukraine. Through simple acts of service we’re offering comfort, bringing hope and living out Christ’s love to those who need it the most.

Due to the fact that we’re working in a humanitarian disaster situation, the scope and location of ministry may need to be adjusted without prior notification.

NOTE: Female volunteers are preferred.  Ukrainian and Russian speakers, as well as Polish speakers are prioritized.  Experience in psychological first-aid/trauma care is also prioritized.   However, male volunteers can also be accepted, especially with language skills in Ukrainian, Russian and Polish as well as the ability to drive in an international setting, specifically for manual/stick-shift vehicles.

It is possible to serve for longer than 1-week.  The placement coach will confirm length of service as well as final outreach cost for service longer than 1-week.

Applicants MUST be flexible and willing to serve based on the Poland team’s needs.  Also applicants must be willing to go through our application process at an accelerated pace given the dates of service needed on the team in Poland.

Participants will assist mothers with babies and children at border crossings through an OM trailer with baby facilities, help them feed and entertain children, run kid’s programs at reception centers, carry luggage, distribute aid, serve drinks and snacks, and provide information to prevent human trafficking and other security threats. When time permits, they may spend time with refugees waiting for buses, in the trailer or reception centers, offering listening ears and sharing God’s love through words of encouragement and prayer.

The ministry will also include everyday chores and meal preparation at the team house, organizing the warehouse, and being an encouragement and a good example to non-OM volunteers working on the ground. Meals are an opportunity for fellowship and sharing.

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?
