Expe­ri­ence life as a missionary

Your life will be forever changed by a missional internship.

Your summer intern experience will make you a sensitive advocate of missions and help you better understand the church as a people sent on a mission by God. We pray that the internship program is a catalyst for you to passionately proclaim and embody the good news of Jesus Christ in the world.

Preparation takes place the spring semester followed by 6-8 weeks on location between May and August. Dates vary by location. You will raise approximately $4,000 to cover all associated expenses. A $100 administration fee is due once accepted.

HIM Pro­gram

The Helpers in Missions (HIM) program is a ministry at the Memorial Road Church of Christ that provides young people with the opportunity of a lifetime to spread the Gospel with missionaries already on the field. University graduates serve in mission areas under the supervision of an experienced missionary for a two year commitment. HIM workers are placed with field missionaries who request helpers.
