Operation Joshua (OJ)
The great commission provides enough room for every one to participate. Moses, Aaron and Hur raised the staff as Joshua fought the Amalekites. Operation Joshua (OJ) is a short-term missions program designed to enable committed Christians take advantage of their leave or holidays to visit our mission fields for periods of two weeks to six months.
OJ provides you an opportunity to:
- Acquire a personnel experience of the mission-field situation first hand.
- Use your skills and talent to further the work of missions.
- Experience an environment to help you confirm God’s calling to long-term missions.
- Build friendship with missionaries and among the Unreached peoples being visited.
- Help encourage the missionaries, share the burdens of their work and bring back first hand information to your local church.
CAPRO’s Short-Term Missions desk offers you the unique opportunity to get first hand information on how to minister life along with the missionaries among the Unreached peoples.
Duration: A week to six months.
Time: Several OJs are organized each year. Apply to get a list of dates of upcoming OJs. It is also possible to organize special OJs for individuals, groups and churches.
Cost: O.J. is self sponsored and the amount depends on the outreach spot chosen. Click to Register
Christian Volunteer Services (CVS)
With hundreds of thousands of people still unreached with the gospel, no Christian should ignore the call to get involved. The CVS provides you with the opportunity to spend one or two years of your life to advance the cause of missions. What a way to use your sabbatical! Or an amazing way to spend inter diploma or post NYSC year!
Many missionaries and other Christians suffer severe difficulties because of the lack of professional support. Through CVS you can provide services in the following areas:
Administration and secretarial duties, media and journalism, agriculture, graphic designing, web-designing, IT, education, health-care services, architecture, building, engineering, driving, clerical, catering, and research etc. Alongside their professional service volunteers will have lots of opportunities to preach the gospel.
Any willing born again Christian who has a skill to share may participate. To help you minister effectively all participants are exposed to a specialized two-week orientation course at the beginning of the program.
The Cost: CAPRO provides some monthly personal maintenance allowance (and accommodation is some case) during the service year. Click to Register
