From discernment to deployment, we offer comprehensive training for those feeling called to long-term missions work.

For those interested in evaluating where — or even if — God may be calling them to missionary service, our Missionary Development Program (MDP) is a flexible, self-paced tool to assist you in your calling. The program is divided into three modules, following these learning objectives:

  • Biblical Understanding & Disciple-Making
  • Cultural Awareness
  • Health, Development & Resilience
  • Denominational Understanding & Values

Module I: Discernment — In this module, you will focus on studying, assessing your gifting, and gaining practical ministry experience.

Module II: Deployment — In this module, you will explore the specific place of service where the Lord may be calling you and following through on all of the steps for deployment.

Module III: Continuous Learning — In this module, you will be a part of quarterly Zoom calls with others also in their first term of service.

For those seeking full-time missionary status through BIC U.S. World Missions, acceptance into the MDP is the first step.
