God does amazing things when the passions and interests of an individual (or couple) align with the needs Encompass has around the world. It starts with an encounter of God’s love for the world through short-term ministry teams; next explore cross-cultural ministry through internships; and finally engage in long-term ministry on one of our disciple-making teams.
We will be your guide on a journey equipping you for the challenges of cross-cultural ministry and the life-transforming work God wants to do through you.
Short-Term Ministry Team Opportunities

If you’ve never had the opportunity to see how God is working through people to make disciples of all nations this is a great place to start. Going on an Encounter Short-Term Ministry Team will open your eyes to God’s heart for the nations, break your heart for those who have little or no opportunity to hear the gospel, and help you begin to dream about how you can become involved in cross-cultural ministry.
