Requirements

We need someone who would be willing to join in organizing regular sporting activities with the aim of building relationships through social sport.  This person would join a team who will be identifying true seekers and testing a strategy to bring these seekers from the playing field to following Jesus Christ.  Once this is accomplished this person would have the opportunity to disciple and train new believers to replicate this ministry in another part of the city.

We are looking for people with the following qualities: sports enthusiast, organizational skills, leadership, enthusiasm, self-motivation and the ability to influence and motivate others.​

Gifting in Evangelism and discipleship would be helpful (but is not strictly necessary). Any formal sports coaching/training qualifications or sports ministry training would be helpful (but not essential).

We offer ongoing training and development in sports ministry, evangelism and discipleship methods as well as support from an already-established sports-ministry team.

Start Date

Commitment Length

2-3 Years

All jobs/opportunities on this site are unsalaried. Most people joining OM have to raise financial support to cover their living expenses, usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters.
