We are looking for someone to join the OM Africa Financial Development team. Do you have the skills to be a catalyst for generosity to see that happen? You will be a key part of the work. We are looking for someone who has the character to be self-motivated, trustworthy and who has a keen eye for opportunities. Your work will cover a number of fields across Africa as well as a wide-range of topics, from donor relations, compliance to business and cross-cultural teams.
You would work closely with the Financial Development Coordinator in the Africa Area, and will work closely with the communications coordinator to produce follow up reports, thank you letters and creative feedback to maintain accountability.
This role will also require you writing Key Ministry Plans (KMP), follow-up reports, developing key relationships and resourcing.
You will need to be flexible, willing to travel, have the ability to inspire, and a vision to see the work in Africa adequately resourced.
OM Africa is a growing part of OM and with many opportunities for ministry. The strategy in Financial development is to decrease the reliance on foreign funds for a wide range of reasons. A more localised, decentralised model for funding Vibrant Communities of Jesus Followers among the least reached will involve a lot of changes to current practice, so you will need to keep in touch with and help implement the latest thinking from within and outside of the organisation.
This person would be adaptable at first with plenty of scope to specialise in a particular area of financial development, but still participate with the team and ministries. This person would also be part of a global network of Financial Development specialists who work to maintain the highest standards of fund-raising.
- 21 years or older
- Experience in business, finance with good system skills
- A heart to see well planned, well run and well financed
- A passion to motivate and encourage people to record and report well on their ministries.
- Willingness to learn the internal OM systems and to deal with people from all manner of backgrounds and cultures

Cuando Juan se sintió impulsado a dejar sus estudios y dedicarse a la plantación de iglesias, Dios le dejó en claro que terminará esa obra, porque estaba por usar las habilidades de Juan para Sus propósitos.
“I joined a homegroup (Bible Study or life group) two years ago and as time passes, more and more of each member’s character is coming forward,” says Renette. “It dawned on me the other day that we honestly do not have anything in common. No one does the same job or has the same friends or enjoys the same hobbies. No one would have met if it wasn’t for the homegroup. The only thing in common is our love for Jesus.”
When Juan felt compelled to leave his studies and do church planting, God made it clear to him to finish because God was going to use Juan's skills for His purposes.
