Journey Overview

The Integral Mission Training is a 5 month training programme in Chile designed to train disciples for a missional lifestyle. The IMT takes on a holistic approach combining classroom teaching with practical ministry and outreaches. Prioritising one-to-one discipleship and mentoring, allowing students to process what they're learning about God in a safe environment.

The IMT programme offers an exciting introduction to cross cultural mission while helping you to deepen your relationship with God and to grow in discipleship. The EMI programme is taught in both English and Spanish. It includes two outreaches and you'll be involved in other local ministries too. The mission field is awaiting! But would you be ready? If you were given the opportunity today to serve on any mission field, would you know where to start? If that mission field were an isolated, high-pressure environment, would your relationship with God survive and even thrive?

Studies show that many missionaries planning to go to the mission field long-term are only lasting about two years. Quality pre-field missionary training can help workers bear more fruit and last longer on the field. This is why OM in Chile's Integral Mission Training (IMT) provides a real mission experience for those interested in becoming long-term missionaries. Veteran IMT students testify the integral mission training combined with community living makes for a transformational experience!

Training will be in Spanish or English with translation available.

What To Expect

Through the Integral Mission Training, students are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and character necessary to be successful serving in missions. The lecture component of IMT engages the mind. Missionaries receive powerful teaching from motivating speakers and fellow missionaries; those best able to train, teaching from actual mission experience.

In the classroom, missionaries learn about hearing God’s voice, intercessory prayer, spiritual warfare, praise/worship, VCJF´s, language learning, team dynamics, knowing God’s will, cultural adaptation, storytelling/oral communication, world religions, community development and much more.

Students are also involved in practical ministry exposure, teaching missionaries to be good listeners, to hear questions and respond with wisdom. Missionaries will have a chance to make a difference in the surrounding society through participating in local evangelistic ministries and two outreaches, one within Chile and one in another Latin American country.
