'Long-term' mission could be anything from two years or more.
At GC Jobs and Mission we’re passionate about reaching the world for Jesus - and encouraging and releasing people into longer-term mission across the globe is a key part of our vision.
If you are considering getting involved, you need to think through what you have to offer, why you want to go, where you could go (or stay), and you need to be aware of some of the possible pitfalls. Most churches and mission agencies will also want to know something about your sense of 'call'.
Long-term mission is a time investment and is not something to go into lightly.
A longer-term commitment allows time for language learning, training, cultural adjustments, and the time to build up relationships in a much more meaningful way. To be most effective, you need to invest a significant amount of time to learn about a different culture and to become part of a new community.
