5 Ways You Can Explore Missions with CMF

Maybe missions has been on your mind since that short-term trip you took in high school. Maybe it wasn’t on your radar until you heard a missionary speak at your church and you felt that tug on your heart. Whatever path you’re on, we’re here to walk alongside of you as you consider whether God is leading you to mission service. Our teams of missionaries serve in countries all over the world doing a wide variety of ministries. We’ve got campus ministers, accountants, teachers, preachers, engineers, and everyone in between. Maybe our next missionary is you!

Below are five different ways you can explore what life and ministry with CMF on the mission field could look like for you.

Check out our series on missions.

We get it. It’s a big decision. You feel a pull towards missions, but you’ve got lots of questions. That’s why we’ve created a 5-part video series to help you take the next right steps in your consideration of international mission work. From finding your personal niche in ministry, to raising support, to explaining your calling to family and friends, each video features a different CMF staff member who is a professional in this work. They will walk you through core topics when beginning your journey with intercultural ministry and provide valuable advice, as well as tangible action items for each step.

In addition to the videos, each topic includes a worksheet to help you process what you’re hearing along with resources to go even deeper. Visit this page to read more about this completely free, no strings attached series and watch an introductory video.
