Volunteer Service is an opportunity for people of all ages to help out in a variety of ways in our offices, at events, and on the mission field.  Volunteer service may be short or long term. Volunteers add great experience and expertise to our teams in Canada and around the globe.

Discovery Trips

Missionary Discovery Trips are 4 weeks to 6 months in length and offer the opportunity to meet real needs, and often fill in for missionaries on furlough. Trips vary depending on current needs.

Internship Opportunities
