About Us

OMS UK is looking for spiritual, adventurous, and prayerful individuals to creatively respond to God’s call and the needs of the world around us. Our mission is to introduce people to Jesus, and to help His church in over 50 countries do the same. From Londrina to Manila, Johannesburg to Moscow, OMS is making a difference.
Students and singles, couples and families, are choosing God’s call over ordinary living. Throughout the UK and across the globe God is calling ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

WHAT WE DO

OMS is a global mission working in over fifty countries on six continents. Through prayer and action we seek to fulfil the Great Commission in some of the most challenging areas of the world.

OMS exists to establish responsible, reproducing, Christ centred churches among the nations. We endeavour to achieve this through our dynamic four-fold focus: Evangelism, Church Planting, Training Leaders and Strategic Partnership through National Church Fellowships.

The OMS mission statement reads:

“By God’s grace, One Mission Society unites, inspires and equips Christians to make disciples of Jesus Christ, multiplying communities of believers around the world.”

One Mission Society is delighted to announce the appointment of
Mr Walter Mc Corkell as UK Executive Director.

Walter McCorkellWe see God’s hand upon this appointment and an answer to much prayer. It has also occurred very much in God’s timing, and for His purposes. Walter comes to OMS with a 30 year career history of service as a senior manager and operational scientist within the Northern Ireland Civil Service and his professional career has brought him into contact with many professional, business and influential individuals. As an expert witness, he has a long experience of public speaking, court work and multi-agency interaction. His professional career has taken him to some countries to help train Police and scientific personnel.

Walter is a serving Elder within the Presbyterian Church and he has been a Sunday School Teacher and Superintendent, Youth Club Leader and Mission Committee convenor within his home congregation of Strean Presbyterian Church, Newtownards, Northern Ireland. His experience extends to frequently taking church services and preaching God’s Word both at home and abroad.

Along with his wife Rosie, Walter recently spent four years in full time Missionary service in Mozambique with the Africa Inland Mission. During this time, they built their own house deep in the African bush, built a Bible School, and faithfully ministered to and discipled five mud-hut churches in the area associated with the Uniting Church of Christ, American Board, in Mozambique. Prior to this, Walter has served on voluntary mission teams to six countries on three continents. Walter and Rosie have three grown up daughters, two grandsons and one granddaughter. As part of their theological growth, both Walter and Rosie have undertaken courses at Belfast Bible College, and Walter has successfully achieved his Theology degree at Union College and Queens University Belfast.

Walter, in his role as Executive Director, will work from the OMS Belfast office and commute to the Headquarters in Manchester on a regular basis. Our prayer is that God will continue to bless this appointment, and that through it His Kingdom will be extended and grown, and the work of One Mission Society developed.
