A mission abroad is an incredibly enriching experience in which you can learn more about God, other cultures and people, and about yourself.
Lea Andexlinger, Short-term Coordinator and Supervisor

We support you.

Introductory
Conversation.

Firstly, we invite you to get to know us. And we want to get to know you personally. Only then can we be sure you are in the right place. The first meeting will be online. We will then work together to find out what kind of short-term position suits you, or what else is important for your desired placement.

Once we have found a suitable placement for your calling, we will assign you a contact person of our team who will support you in all aspects of your preparation. This includes:

– Information about the placement in terms of tasks, costs, accommodation, etc.

– Information about funding your placement.

– Help with planning for vaccinations, visas, flights, insurance, etc.

– Administrative discussions and arrangements.

 

 

Preparation.

Crash
Course.

We offer a crash course to prepare you for your assignment. This preparatory course is an important element and prerequisite for your short-term assignment.

Topics we will cover include: Living in a foreign culture! What challenges might I face? How can I prepare well? How can I make my time abroad a rich experience? In addition to input from the preparation team, there will be plenty of time for personal dialogue!

Are you interested?

Then join the next course live in Wüstenrot from 6th to 9th June 2024.

Reserve your place at kurzzeit@kontaktmission.org.

We look forward to seeing you!

From the crash course I gained very practical knowledge about how to deal with cultural differences. I also found the experiences of previous short-term volunteers inspiring and consciously take an openness to talking about faith with me into my assignment in Mauritius and Tanzania.
Participant Finn Becker

Throughout your placement, you will be supported by your personal contact: They will keep in touch with you by email, talk to you and answer any questions you may have. And of course, we will pray for you as a team!
