The OP Uganda Mission (OPUM), the largest mission station in the OPC, offers many opportunities for short-term mission service, year-round!

There are many ways for a short-term visitor to serve on this field:

  • Medical clinic
  • Farm project
  • Education outreach program
  • Village evangelism
  • Construction and repair projects
  • Helping out in the homes of missionaries

OPUM maintains an excellent website at that includes an extensive and carefully detailed visitor’s handbook (Karamoja Handbookwhich is must-reading for anyone interested in serving in this remote region of the world.  In the Handbook, you’ll find information about the work of the mission, the application process (including visas, insurance and vaccinations), what to pack, rules for community living, local standards of conduct, and even critters and varmints!

If you are in good health and prepared to stay for at least 3 weeks of service, visit the OPUM website and learn more! Our missionaries in Uganda love the fellowship and help of short-term visitors! With advance knowledge of you and your skill set, they will determine how best to put your gifts to work to advance the goals of the mission.  While there, you will learn an immense amount about the Karamojong people and culture, as well as the labors of our missionaries there.

OPUM invites you to come serve, learn, and assist in the active ministry of word and deed carried out daily in the Karamoja region of Uganda.  Short-term visitors are welcome year-round!
