Immerse Yourself in the Culture and JOY of Distant Lands

Offering Men and Women Opportunities to Engage in God’s Mission of Love Around the Globe

Called to the Mission of Love

God continues to invite us to participate in the mission of love, and being able to step out of our own culture and context can help us appreciate God’s love in a whole new way.

Crossing borders and encountering our brothers and sisters around the world is an opportunity for a mutual exchange of the JOY that comes from the Gospel.

We not only evangelize, but are evangelized!
