Other Ways to Serve Overseas

The Outreach Team is passionate about helping students fulfill God’s call on their lives in a variety of ways. While we would love for students to participate as a team member on a Global Outreach team we recognize that God may be leading people to serve overseas in a different capacity. Below you will find a list of organizations that are looking for student volunteers or short-term workers for the Gospel.

If you feel the Lord leading you to serve overseas we invite you to look through the opportunities listed below. You are welcome to contact any of them at any time for more information about their ministry, logistics or next steps for serving with them. You are also invited to come and speak with a member of the Global Outreach staff if you want more information on living overseas or how to discern if God is leading you toward international ministry.

To have your ministry added to this page please fill out this form or if you have further questions please send an email to global@jessup.edu.
