We have a range of opportunities for engaging in cross-cultural mission:

Long Term

Long term missionaries are initially appointed for a four year term. Orientation will include opportunities for theological and language learning, together with cultural adaptation and practical arrangements.

Short Term

Testing the waters? Pushing doors? Tired of standard clichés? We can arrange short-term trips tailored to your specific gifts and calling…

If you’re interested in a cross-cultural ministry trip from a few weeks up to two years, check out our current opportunities, get in contact, and we’ll see how we can help.  All applications are handled on an individual basis.

Or for a short term team trip join one of our summer teams or share your practical skills with Operation Centurion.

Summer Teams

Each year UFM sends a number of Summer Teams to go for 2-3 weeks ministry in some of the countries where we work.  In recent years teams have served in South Africa, Moldova, Brazil, France, Hungary, Mongolia, Spain and in the UK.

Practical Project Teams

“Operation Centurion” teams undertake practical projects in support of national churches and Christians. Small teams of those with practical skills, and others with enthusiasm, undertake specific projects. Teams have gone to Brazil, Ivory Coast and Mongolia to help construct important facilities to assist the national Christians in their ministries.

Medical Electives

Medical electives can be arranged in missionary hospitals and community health programmes. Currently we are able to consider applications to serve in Uganda and the Ivory Coast.

Pastoral Training

“Barnabas Ministry” provides opportunities for UK pastors to provide training for pastors in other countries who have not been able to undertake Bible College training. Barnabas Ministry courses have been arranged in Brazil, Ivory Coast, Mongolia, SE Asia and Sierra Leone.

Specific Opportunities

There are a number of opportunities to serve cross-culturally in support of a range of a missions directly or indirectly linked to UFM. These opportunities offer individuals the chance to employ specific skills for a time-limited period. Examples include administration, teaching, construction, team leadership and evangelism.
