Streams in the desert
For over 25 years, OM teams and individuals have been praying for and serving among the people of North Africa to see Muslims encounter and experience God’s life changing love through Jesus Christ. Focusing primarily on outreach, prayer and Scripture distribution, thousands have helped saturate this region with Biblical truth. Today, we are seeing the fruit of those pioneers as OM teams continue to serve in the region through church planting in unreached areas and Gospel sharing with friends and neighbors. Cultural immersion and language acquisition help OM workers build lasting bonds in the heart language. Teaching and numerous business opportunities provide practical avenues to serve the community and build bridges by meeting everyday needs. Regular team and prayer gatherings provide support and encouragement for OMers who continually interceed for God's spirit to pour out streams of living water in a dry land.
What we do, how we work
Outreach: Our primary goal of living and working in North Africa is to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached. Discovery Bible Studies, practical business and volunteer opportunities, language studies, and living with integrity and intentionality help OMers build lasting relationships and communicate the power and love of God.
Professional Opportunities: Language teachers, business professionals, writers and visual communicators, physical and occupational therapists, as well as those with social and community development experience have numerous opportunities in North Africa. OMers utilise their highly valued professional background and skills to serve the community.
Mentoring and Discipleship: Valuing the individual skills and giftings of individual members, the long-term OM teams in North Africa strive to support and equip OMers to grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. An extensive training program for new members offers practical information on settling into daily life, cultural adaptation, language learning, and outreach.
Learning Arabic: Learning the heart language is intrinsic to effective witness. A variety of language learning options are available within the region, ranging from formal classrooms to private tutors.
Short Term Exposure: Short-term programs ranging from one week to two years, offer participants opportunities to partner with existing OM teams and exposure to North African culture. Gospel literature distribution, prayer walking, evangelism and providing practical support to long-term teams, help participants discover how they can contribute to the work in North Africa.
