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

Applications to the Mission Volunteer program can be submitted at any point during the year. Applications are reviewed by a panel and chosen applicants attend a virtual interview. Selected volunteers must commit to a three-day training before leaving for their placement site. Applications are due two months before trainings commence.
