What We Do
We care for the uncared for. Sick people. Alcoholics. The exploited, abused, poor. Prosperous but lonely. Young and old. Religious and non-religious. Businessmen, students, factory workers and many others.
We work closely with churches at home and in close partnership with the Church in East Asia; doing so in teeming mega-cities, remote villages and among tribal peoples.
We share and show the love of Christ to East Asians in Asia and in other countries too, including Canada.
We encourage the church in Canada to have a heart for the whole world by sharing information and experiences.
We place people of all ages – young people who want to go to Asia for a short time - and professionals who will go out with OMF on a long term basis.
Pioneering - Reaching the Unreached
Where the church does not exist we work to see a multiplying church movement established. We do this with other Christians wherever possible. We use whatever methods are both effective and glorifying to God. We persevere in sharing until His church is established. Where there are restrictions or barriers to open mission work we serve through other approaches while our goal continues to be to establish Christ's church there.
Where the church is small and Christians are few we work to see that place, society or people saturated with the gospel and churches established in every community.
We aim to establish churches that are faithful to the Scriptures, are a genuine expression of local culture, are reaching out to their own people and other peoples, and are able to care for themselves while taking their place as part of the world-wide body of Christ. We respect, serve and partner with local churches and Christians where we work. Where there is already an established pattern of church order and government we do not interfere with it.
Perfecting and Discipling
We contribute to the growth and maturity of the body of Christ through publishing, student work and other ministries of discipling and training. Where the church is weak we seek to strengthen it through teaching and encouragement. Where the church has lost its zeal we seek to see it renewed. As an expression of our wholistic concern to share the whole gospel with the whole person, we engage in ministries to the needy, always relating these ministries to the church.
