Envision Placements

If you are 18 or over and would like to spend some time working in cross-cultural mission, why not try an Envision Placement?

This can be for anything from three weeks to a year. You could be a young person taking a gap year, someone between jobs or taking early retirement, or someone who wants to test their calling to long-term mission service by a short-term visit.

Each placement is tailor-made to suit you and the missionary that you work with, and can be arranged alongside our missionaries in several different parts of the world, at any time of year. Contact us for more details.

Ideas for Envision Placements include:

  • In the Philippines, with Christian Compassion Ministries. A lot of your time will be spent supporting the office staff with admin, but you’ll also work in the CCM children’s homes, as well as reaching out to families in the squatter areas, and getting involved in the Drop-in Centre for the homeless.
  • In Welkom, South Africa, with Morning Star Children’s Centre, and Welkom Baptist Church. You’ll be working with young children who have HIV/AIDS, helping in their classes. You might get involved in a women’s livelihood sewing project or doing practical maintenance, and visiting the local township. You’ll also be working with Welkom Baptist Church doing evangelism and discipleship with teenagers.
  • In Johannesburg, South Africa, working with Kids Gospel Ministry in Tembisa Township. The main focus is school’s work as KGM works in about 20 schools, taking assemblies, lunch time Bible studies for teenagers, and after school Bible clubs for primary school children. Previous experience of youth and children’s work is very helpful.

“It was truly amazing to work alongside the Church in Legionowo and I was personally very struck by their great joy in the Lord, and how we were so united in Jesus even when we couldn’t speak the same language! I made such great friends in the church and on the team, and I actually can’t wait to go back!”
