There are many opportunities for individuals, couples and families to come and get involved on a short-term placement with the different projects run by our teams in the UK and overseas. Placements can be arranged from two weeks up to five months in length.
As part of the application process for Short-Term Placements we require you to come to our Centre for the Nations in Llanelli to meet us and to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) background check. If you are looking to go on a placement for more than one month we require you to come and participate in a time of training and preparation (further information given below).
A short-term placement is a great opportunity for you:
- To take your first step into mission by experiencing a new place and serving alongside our teams as they work with local people.
- To experience life as a mission worker by getting involved with one of our teams’ projects on a day-to-day basis.
- To serve, enabling our teams the opportunity to develop or expand their projects so that more people can hear the Gospel.
- To test the calling you believe God is giving you for your life. For some, a short-term placement is a first step into serving in mission long-term. By stepping out you may hear from God with a new sense of clarity.
We can arrange short-term placements for those aged 18 years old and over. Thinking about going and serving during your university summer holiday, using your skills on a placement during your career break, or serving God in mission once you’ve retired? We’d love to hear from you.
