“I want to explore missions while I am in school.
Duration
2 Weeks to 6 Months

College is a time in your life when there are more crossroads than there are straightaways, and that is why our student program strives to provide as much information, guidance, and experience as possible to those considering a career in missions. We want to help you experience new cultures, develop impactful relationships, and learn what it means to be a part of a real missionary team that is making an eternal difference.

Unlike short missions trips that only offer a glimpse into the life of a missionary, ABWE puts a strong emphasis on internships where you get to come alongside experienced long-term missionaries and experience what full-time missions is really like. We offer several established internship options (listed below) where you can easily plug into dynamic ministries, but as we know that missions isn’t one-size-fits-all, we also offer customizable internships so that you can also experience a specific region or ministry that God has placed on your heart. Our internships last anywhere from one to six months, and in many cases can be applied toward academic credit.

In addition to our internships, we also offer student mission trips a few times a year to give you a first-hand introduction to missions with ABWE. Led by our staff, these one-to-two week trips provide mission-minded students an opportunity to learn and serve together in a cross-cultural setting, and our hope is that God uses this time to open your heart missions — whether on a foreign field or in your neighborhood.

Wherever you are right now, whatever your experience or education level, we provide the training and resources you need to succeed. We’d love to speak with you about how our beliefs and vision align with your passion and how we can work together to reach the world for Christ.

We’d love to get to know you and discuss how God is calling you.
