Short term teams

Our short term teams are designed to allow you to work in partnership with long term missionaries, continuing and complementing their work. Or you will work with and support the local African church. You’ll get a real insight into missionary life. Your work won’t just be a one off project, but instead, a vital part of seeing the unreached turn to Christ. You can join a team on your own or go as group from your church.

Individual placements

If you want to get involved in a specific ministry, then our individual placements – which last up to one year – could be perfect for you. Maybe you’ve got a particular skill, like teaching or nursing, and feel that God is calling you to use that in Africa? You will be living alongside long term missionaries and be immersed into African life. Why not go, and be excited by all that God is doing in Africa?

Healthcare electives

If you have the opportunity to take a healthcare elective, we have a limited number of places each year where you can experience healthcare and mission working hand in hand. You will build relationships with local Christians, healthcare workers and patients, learning about their lives and their culture. You will also have the opportunity to attend a local church.

Bible college placements

If your Bible college course requires you to complete a placement, this is a great opportunity to combine your course requirements with on-the-ground exposure to life as a missionary.

Once we know the requirements of your course we can match you with a ministry where you will be mentored individually or where you will be part of a team. Typical individual placements include; outreach and discipleship in northern Kenya, youth discipleship in Rwanda and outreach among rural villages in northern Uganda.
