Mission Volunteers

We’re kicking off a Mission Volunteer video series!

Released over the next few weeks, this series of 11 short video clips featuring program director Una Jones will cover program information and various training topics. We hope they empower, equip and resource individuals and couples interested in engaging in God’s mission through long term service.

Check back by Sept. 13 for the next set of videos in this series. This week, learn about the importance of Mission Theology, our application process and Mission Volunteer trainings. 

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.
