Mid-Term Missionary Work

If you want time to build deep relationships, learn a new culture and be mentored by seasoned missionaries — all while sharing the love of Christ — mid-term missions could be your perfect fit.

Spend two years caring for orphans, teaching nursing students, producing evangelistic media or even establishing a church plant. Or find your match among hundreds of other mid-term opportunities.

As a step beyond short-term missions, TEAM’s mid-term track creates a two-year season to deeply explore your role in missions and make profound investments in the lives around you. You’ll learn how to effectively engage with new languages and cultures, discover their unique traits and use that knowledge to serve others. By the end, you’ll have built a strong foundation for ministry in your home country or even in long-term missions.
