MDT UK - Missions Discipleship Training: United Kingdom

Are you ready to live your life for Jesus, discover God's purpose for your life and join an adventure that will impact the world around you?
Then MDT is for you!
Expand your faith, see God work and discover missions.
Missions Discipleship Training (MDT) is OM's foundational training course preparing you to step out into missions at home or overseas.
Based in/near two of Europe’s most culturally diverse cities, Birmingham and London, you will find the world on your doorstep.

  • Start Date: Mon 01 Jan 2018
  • Commitment Length: 6-12 months (Full Time)

MDT provides five months intensive training where you will be challenged to grow deeper in your relationship with the Lord.
You will have a personal mentor who will walk this journey with you.
Enjoy team life, interactive classroom training and urban ministry among the least reached living in the UK.
You may also help run OM's Global Village simulation experience, an interactive project which engages and challenges participants for local and global mission.

MDT training consists of several modules from increasing our knowledge of God the Father and His desire for the nations, a greater understanding of ourselves, to gaining a deeper understanding of other faiths and how to relate to people of those faiths.

Start with OM's GO Conference for new recruits followed by

  • cross cultural community living
  • intensive mission training/study (theology, missiology, world faiths, evangelism, and more)
  • adventure week (developing team-building and leadership skills)
  • practical ministry exposure (Global Village, two urban outreaches plus practical ministry alongside existing ministries in the UK)

You will need:

  • to be at least 18 years old
  • have a good level of spoken English (will be assessed)
  • a desire and openness to allow God to work in your life
  • a desire to learn and grow as a person
  • a willingness to work and live as part of a team
  • an openness to people of other faiths and cultures
  • no previous experience as full training will be given

We have two intakes a year:
Mid January and Mid August.
You can extend your time to a year or two by getting involved in other OM ministries in the UK or abroad.
We have close links with ministries around the world and we are happy to explore other options with you.

Please note: 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.
