Do you have what we are looking for?  You will have an opportunity to allow God to use your talents and skill-set to be part of a bigger movement in having a Kingdom impact among the least reached.

OM is, at its heart, a movement of God, made up of people who are completely sold out to Jesus Christ and His commands.  Moved by the Holy Spirit, we cross boundaries, we push limits.  We want OM to remain a movement of God, utterly dependent upon Him.  We show our dependence through our commitment to His Word and by waiting upon Him in prayer.
