Keeping mission vision alive and growing A quarterly publication of Mission Data International

Finding Mission Opportunities helps people quickly connect with short-term mission trips that fit their gifts, calling, and availability, listing hundreds of mission trip provided by many agencies. But you might be interested in some of the other services designed to help people find mission trips and service opportunities. If you coordinate trips you might want to partner with these ministries too. If you are looking for an opportunity, try your search with one or more of them.

  • Mission Finder lists hundreds of short term, medical, domestic, and international mission trips, categorized by location and type of ministry. Lots of links, short descriptions.
  • is similar to and It has long-term Christian mission opportunities as well as short-term ones.
  • Finishers Project is designed for adults of middle age and older (Baby Boomers). MissionExplore, organized around causes, is for younger adults. Another service from the same ministry is Mission:TEACH, which helps place teachers in international Christian schools.
  • BAMmatch connects business people with opportunities around the world where their skills are needed.
  • Christian Connections for International Health and are designed for medical personnel and those interested in medical work.
  • is not specifically focused on missions opportunities, but lists options for employment at ministry organizations, nonprofits, and Christian businesses.

If you want an opportunity offered by a mission organization in another country, try Mission Platform (Australia) and OSCAR (UK and Europe).

Don’t forget that some mission agencies list specific opportunities right on their websites. Others would be happy to tell you about specific ways to serve with them if you contact them by phone or email. Ask mission agencies about short-term and long-term opportunities. Don’t overlook what are sometimes called “mid-term” opportunities, those which last for from several months up to a year or two. Sometimes these are not advertised, but they may provide the best way to get to know an agency while being further equipped for a lifetime of ministry.
