What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Portugal - street evangelism

Creativity, passion, engagement with children and endurance will be key features of your time in Portugal! Come support local OM ministry workers in reaching out to children during the kids program at an annual food festival.

Through running the children’s program at a local festival, this team will be a support to the existing OM workers who regularly engage the community in children’s ministry and evangelism. The hope is that through this outreach seeds can be sown in young hearts, and whole families can be impacted.

What will you be doing?  Prop and set design, puppet ministry, group games, songs and so much more – all with a deeper message of Bible principles and morals. The first days will be focused on preparation, set up and design. The second portion will be spent working at the festival and, with the team, leading the children's care section. Expect long hours and lots of fun!

Kids in Portugal speak Portuguese! Some may have basic English skills, but expect there to be a language barrier and do not expect to always have a translator right there. Communicating through body language and smiles will be a big help. Also, Portugal is a night time culture. Expect to have late nights during the time when the festival is running.

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?
