Neil Cummings

For over 20 years, Neil has been involved full time in sending workers out into world missions. For missionaries to be effective overseas, they need people to provide support services; before they leave, while away and during home assignment. By giving training and equipping for cross cultural ministry and by providing practical support to OM workers in the field, Neil is playing a vital role in facilitating long term ministry, to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers amongst the least reached.

Neil has a Masters of Commerce in Human Resource Management. He is passionate about continuously improving OM Australia’s ability to send and serve missionaries around the world. As a missionary kid himself, he has a strong empathy for the struggles and challenges of singles, couples and families serving overseas and seeks to help workers and their families through the transitions of life and ministry.

In 2020, Neil became the National Director for OM Australia.
