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.

For over 50 years, Operation Mobilization (OM) has been bringing the message of hope through Jesus Christ to men, women, and children around the world. Though we have over 6,800 volunteers and staff serving within the OM family of ministries in 118 nations, we have one thing in common — we love Jesus and we want others to have the opportunity to hear about Him.
Through Bible studies, teaching students, building businesses, relief and development work, the creative arts and much, much more — by all means possible, we partner with the local church to tell people how our lives have been changed and how they too can meet Jesus!
We are a collective of 6,800 people who don’t fit a mold, who don’t sit still, and who love the adventure of serving Jesus. We live in the remote corners and the city-centers. We feed the hungry and heal the sick.
