About OMP


The objective of the OMP is to mobilize, train and send out teams of students into cross-cultural areas around the world where they can learn to serve the poor, share their faith and network with Christians and missionaries from a broad spectrum of other cultures and church traditions.

Program Description

The OMP program offers students course credits in missions and the option of two units of mentored ministry. WM720, offered over three weekends during the spring semester, is the prerequisite orientation class for all OMP participants (including non-student spouses who wish to go). This is followed by a contextualized, field-based learning experience of supervised cross-cultural ministry. It is required for all pursuing an M.A. in Missions and Evangelism, and it is also open to all members of the Seminary community. All participants must be endorsed and sent by a local church.

Class Credit for OMP:

  • WM720: Overseas Missions Practicum (may be audited)
  • Up to 2 units of Mentored Ministry
