Missions Opportunities

  • Opportunities
  • Trips
  • Short-term
  • Mid-term
  • Long-term

We are asking God for a gospel movement among every least-reached people group in our generation.

One important way we do this is by equipping missionary servant leaders, like you, to create movements that impact individuals, communities and regions in four different ways:

  • Church-based missions trips, 1-2 weeks
  • Short-term deployment, 1-12 months
  • Mid-term deployment, 1-3 years
  • Long-term deployment, 4+ years

All four of these mission opportunities to serve exist alongside Converge missionaries, who are currently on the field in over 30 locations around the globe. We use strategies aimed at starting and strengthening new churches to help people meet, know and follow Jesus, such as:

  • Evangelism
  • Discipleship
  • Reaching migrating people in other nations and in the U.S.
  • Teaching English to nonbelievers
  • Women's ministries
  • Youth camps, children's ministries
  • Medical ministries
  • Deaf ministries

Help us take the gospel to the ends of the earth. To get started, fill out the form below.
