Mission Volunteers are individuals or couples (ages 18 and up), who seek long-term partnerships with communities around the world. Mission Volunteer opportunities are diverse and range from working with refugees, children and youth, serving as a teacher, pastor, camp director or health care professional. The length of service ranges from two months to more than two years.

Mission Volunteers are people of faith with local and/or international mission experience. Applications are reviewed by 
committee, and chosen applications attend a virtual interview. Selected volunteers must commit to a three-day training before leaving for their placement site. Application cycle is ongoing, with an average of four trainings offered per year. Applications are due two months before trainings commence.
