Opportunities are posted by participating mission organisations and a seeker can search these using various filters including role (eg- 'Education & Training'), region (eg- 'Asia - South Eastern'), and time commitment(eg- '1-3 years')).
Christian employment (or Christian jobs) on Mission Seek are for committed Christians and typically (but not always) - pay a salary/wage directly from the employer; located in Australia; require fulfilment by a set date. Christian employment may also be as a support role in a mission organisation based here in Australia.
Mission trips are an exciting opportunity for people at all life stages to step out and experience mission. Time frames vary from 1 week up to 1 year. The choices are endless in terms of location and skills or gifts needed for your mission trip. You can do an individual short term trip or join a group.
Whether you are a young adult considering a Christian gap year, coming up to retirement and exploring new ways to contribute, looking for an opportunity to serve as a team from your church, a mission trip will open your horizons and provide first-hand experience of what God is doing in another part of the world.
Your short term mission experience can be the beginning of your long term missions journey. It can also change your outlook on life, provide an appreciation for God’s mission work, gain insight to help you better support mission, and enable you to do some practical volunteer service.
You don't need to travel overseas to be a part of global mission. Mission agencies are often looking for volunteers to support their work in Australia. The tight funding needs of many missions increases the importance of volunteer time.
Example volunteer roles include: - Prayer group coordinators; Mission Advocates; Pro bono consultancy; Fundraising for the mission; Donor support; Social media marketing; Helping the general operation of the office; Maintenance and upkeep of properties and gardens; Catering for events or for communities at mission properties
You may be able to be involved weekly from home, in the office, or this may involve living on site on a mission property for 3-12 months.
Throughout the year Missions Interlink and it's members host mission-related events. Events include - conferences, promotional, prayer meetings, equipping and preparing for mission.
A number of Missions Interlink members (as well as Missions Interlink itself) prepare short training courses to help you prepare for mission. Short courses typically range from one day to a few weeks
A number of Bible colleges and mission training organisations are members of Missions Interlink. Some of their education courses are listed here at Mission Seek.
A great way to prepare for mission is to join a internship program offerred by one of our member/associates.
