GO OVERSEAS

 

We want to see people from all walks of life, from all ethnic backgrounds and of all ages, given the opportunity to serve God overseas in every way possible, working together to see this world changed for Jesus.

Whether short term or long term, mission has the potential to have great impact not only in your life but also in the life of your church and ministry.

SHORT TERM PLACEMENTS
 
LONG TERM PLACEMENTS

Short-term volunteer placements can range from one week to up to one year. They can be for individuals or groups wishing to assist a specific missionary and to experience international missions for themselves. Short-term mission placements must be fully funded by the individual. We will endeavour to provide an achievable budget and are happy to suggest fundraising ideas to make the mission trip possible. In most cases our current missionaries’ passion for international mission evolved from participating in a short-term placement.

Below you will find information on the different options available and what they involve. Please contact Mandy Campbell if you have any further questions. The cost of the placement will depend on location and will generally include: Travel Insurance, Criminal Records Check, Food, Accommodation, Transport (when in the country) and Training. It does not include Visa, Leisure and Tourist activities and spending money.

Long-term Placements

Do you feel God may be calling you to long-term mission? You may have already served overseas and are trying to work out the next steps. Maybe you feel God is focussing you on a specific nation or people, or you just feel that he wants you to be obedient to his call to go overseas.

We would love to help you explore your calling and we offer training and support to those wanting to become Elim missionaries.

The first step towards long-term mission is our Missionary Academy - a part-time distance learning programme, including residentials and overseas opportunities, designed to fully prepare and equip you.

"It is so hard to do the trip justice. I have focused so much on me, what the impact on my life was, what my experience was. When in fact, its not about me at all, It's all about the people. I'm just one person but they are many. I have loved being part of a team who have impacted many people’s lives. I feel so privileged and I thank God that I was given the opportunity to be part of something so amazing."
