Entrance Steps to the Field
STEP ONE: Get Acquainted!
We want to get to know more about you and how God has been leading you towards missions. Email, phone calls, skype, face-to-face meetings, let’s talk! Take a moment to tell us more about yourself by filling out this Initial Contact form.
STEP TWO: WorldView
Enroll in our online WorldView course which is designed to help you learn more about OC International: Who are we? How does our philosophy and strategy play out in our ministries? How do we deal with things like money or the balance of ministry and family? This in-depth course will paint a clearer picture for you as you are deciding which agency is the best fit for you. During this course you will also have opportunity to dialogue more with our Director of Mobilization, Jeff Boesel. Together, you can decide if step 3 is next for you!
STEP THREE: Application
Request and complete the application. The application also includes a psychological evaluation handled by an outside company. It is also during this step that you can target a potential interview date. OC offers 4 interview cycles per year and they are done by invitation only. Once your application is completed, the interview committee will review your paperwork and decide on inviting you to a formal face-to-face interview!
STEP FOUR: Interviews and Orientation
The interview is a week-long event comprised of 4 parts. First, you will meet with a counselor to debrief the psychological assessments previously taken. Second, you will meet with OC’s interview committee for your interview. Third, a mutual decision will be made to determine if you will officially be accepted as an OC mission worker. Fourth, the days following acceptance are called OC Orientation. This is nuts and bolts training of how things operate for OC mission workers.
The journey to the field continues from there…
