Join the Team


Operation World is a ministry made up entirely of volunteers. Normally, everyone in the team is a part of a mission organization – usually WEC, but sometimes a team member is seconded to us from another organization. The core of the team is based in England.

We are a small team, usually ranging between 3-8 full time people with a few part time folks. There are a host of different tasks involved in both the ongoing ministry of OW and the preparation of specific prayer resources. Currently, our priority is the 8th edition of our flagship book, Operation World.


These include, but are not limited to:

  • country research and newsgathering/filtering 
  • database development
  • data gathering, entry, analysis, and visualization
  • database/information/contact management 
  • graphic and web design
  • copy editing and proof reading 
  • engaging with churches and Christians to promote our resources and to mobilize prayer and mission
  • the many parts of managing, administrating, and caring for a diverse team working on differing projects


We are always interested in adding people that God has called to serve in His harvest field!  This would include:

  • a sense of calling from God
  • going through appropriate screening and orientation with WEC or another organization 
  • having the approval and support of your home church in this endeavour
  • trusting God for your financial needs as a volunteer (OW does not pay salaries)

As a “missionary team”, our shared spiritual life together is also important for our growth and ministry. We are intercessors as well as researchers!
