Volunteering can be life-changing.

Volunteering to serve God overseas can be life-changing for you and the people you serve. Serving others in another country, and being a living example of God’s word, is faith in action which can produce incredible fruit for the gospel.

God uses people from a huge variety of backgrounds to humbly do his will overseas. Doctors, nurses, teachers, mechanics, accountants, research assistants, students, retired people and even young people wanting to fill a gap year – have been able to join pastors in serving God and his people in other nations.

You may be:

  • young and looking for a Gap Year opportunity
  • looking to volunteer during a holiday period
  • part of a friendship group wanting to engage with the wider church
  • retired and keen to unpack God’s prompts
  • someone who would like to help LCA International Mission at the local level
  • anyone – just ready to serve!

If so, please consider offering your time to serve in a wide range of exciting ministry areas with our overseas partner churches and here in Australia and New Zealand.
