Professional Development Trips Where the Mission Field Meets Your Field of Expertise

Serving abroad isn’t just for college students, it’s for working professionals too.

Professional Development Trips are arranged for professionals to provide training workshops in their field of expertise to indigenous staff in Zambia and India. These workshops seek to increase the training of the local staff and to give them tools to  build on the capacity of what they are already doing. Workshops can also be held for recipients of project services as is applicable.

If you are interested in leading a workshop and would like to see if it is a good fit, please send us an email at
