Mission Volunteers

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.

For further details regarding the Mission Volunteer program refer to our video series below, a resource to empower and equip those called to serving in mission as long-term volunteers.
