Become a Missionary Associate - Would you like to experience hands-on compassionate ministry working alongside a U.S. Missionary? Missionary Associates provide valuable assistance in many U.S. Missions ministries--MAs lead small groups, handle office work, assist with outreach programs, lead worship, do repair work around the ministry facility, and so much more! You can help part time or full time, for a year or for as long as God leads you. Some MAs are young people taking a year before or after college to seek God and use their gifts and talents; some are retirees who want to use their skills and experience to reach out to others; some want to experience missionary life before committing to a full-time appointment; others simply want to serve however they can in a ministry they believe in. Find out more by visiting the U.S. Missions website and checking the opportunities in the department you are interested in.
