Worldwide: Serving Overseas While Home Based
Intern (1-5 months)
Do you have a desire, a passion, to serve the Lord in a cross-cultural environment overseas, over a longer time period, but don’t feel called to live full-time overseas? Do you want to have a greater impact for the Lord and in the lives of others in another part of the world, using your gifts, training, and life experience? If you are, then ACTION is looking for people like you, and has two great options for you to consider.
- 3 year commitment – serving overseas for a few weeks to a few months each year for 3 successive years, with the same missionary and/or ministry. Going to minister with the same missionary and/or ministry for even a few weeks each year, allows you to build on the previous trips and make a greater impact for the Lord and in the lives you interact with – deepening relationships, adding more effectiveness in lives and ministry activities, and making a greater impact on your own life.
- ACTION Associate – serving overseas on a regular, annual basis for more than 3 years. It is similar to being a full-time missionary living overseas, by being allowed to raise financial support for your trips on a year round basis, but with the option of living at home and having home-based employment.
Both options are designed for those who are retired, self-employed, or employed with several weeks of annual vacation time. It allows flexibility for scheduling trip times and lengths, yet gives you the joy of impacting people for the Lord in another part of the world.
Serving in over 25 different countries, with over 260 missionaries and hundreds of ministries to serve the poor and marginalized of society worldwide, ACTION has a lot to offer for you to consider. If this is something you would be interested in pursuing, please contact us by using the “Email Us” or “Get Involved” links above, and we would be happy to discuss possibilities with you.
