Ukraine Refugee ministry in Hungary

Der Einsatz findet auf Englisch statt, deshalb ist die Beschreibung auf Englisch. Bei Fragen melde dich ungeniert!


OM in Hungary is seeking to come alongside the displaced people from Ukraine. We are working in partnership with local churches and town/city authorities through children's, youth and adult programs. Helping each person to navigate the trauma and grieving of all they have experienced through appropriate programs and counseling.


OM Hungary after several survey trips is choosing not to work at the border stations as needs are being met there by many organisations adequately, but instead is assisting the longer-term ministry to people staying in Hungary for the foreseeable future. We are seeking people with specific training and gifting in trauma ministry and creative arts therapy. We are also in need of people speaking Ukrainian and/or Russian to help with translation.

We have a desire to set up arts and creative therapy sessions for different age groups, as well as help facilitate Russian and Ukrainian language fellowship meetings.

This is not a full day of ministry for every day as time for planning and prayer is also needed, as well as caring for yourselves.

The ministry will also include everyday chores and meal preparation at your accommodation.

You may also be organising ministry donations, helping in practical ways with cleaning and laundry, being an encouragement and a good example to non-OM volunteers.


We invite participants who are:

• Flexible, adaptable, and focused on serving others, able to work well in a multinational team.

• Experienced ministry workers and self-starters as this ministry is in its development stage and we need ‘pioneer’ people with motivation and vision to get things started.

• Experience and/or training in trauma counseling, arts/trauma therapy, children's/family counseling.

• Responsible and able to able to work under the authority of the local OM team and alongside government officials.

• Able to communicate well in English. Ukrainian and/or Russian would be a great asset.

• Compassionate, able to listen well and willing to learn more about Psychological First Aid

• Willing to work within a cross-cultural team, determined to connect with people regardless of language barriers
