Am I Ready to Go?

We've got five questions for you: 

  • Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?
  • Would your church recommend you as a missionary?
  • Do you live a mature, consistent, godly lifestyle?
  • Do you agree with SEND's Statement of Faith?
  • Are you willing to raise financial support?

If you can prayerfully answer “yes” to each of these questions, you meet the initial qualifications to become a SEND missionary!

Other requirements depend on the length of service:

Short-term (2 weeks-1 year)
  • At least one year out of high school (except in special cases).
  • Openness to God leading you into long-term missions.
Mid-term (1-3 years) or Long-term (3+ years)
  • Sense of God’s leading and of urgency to reach the lost.
  • Ability to interpret and apply Scripture and to present the gospel.
  • Capacity for relating well with others, particularly interculturally. This includes submissiveness to leadership, servanthood toward teammates, and willingness to work under the leadership of national believers.
  • Commitment to work toward paying off debt.
  • Experience with missions or church ministry.

SEND International is passionate about mobilizing God's people to share the gospel among unreached people groups, making disciples of all nations. We do everything we can to help our missionaries succeed, so we will work with you to make sure you have:

  1. The training or experience you need.
  2. Strategies for maintaining physical, spiritual, emotional, and relational health.
