Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities

The following are current volunteer assignments. Creating a volunteer opportunity is a process, which may take up to 6 months. In that process, Global Ministries attempts to match an individual’s skills and interests with a need or opportunity that one of our international partners may have at the moment. Please plan accordingly for this time of dialogue and discernment as you consider your available dates.

International partner churches/agencies and Global Ministries are not always able to financially assist volunteers in overseas service. Overseas volunteers are usually expected to fund their work and living expenses. The host institution may sometimes provide housing or meals, but this is not always possible.

For more information about volunteer experiences, please email James Semmelroth Darnell at jsdarnell@dom.disciples.org
