What's the process?

How many references do I need and who should they be? 

You will need contact details for two references for your application. One should be a parent/guardian and the other someone who knows you well such as your youth group leader or another adult in the church.  This helps us to get a better idea of who you are. We will contact them directly and once we have heard back from them, we will make a decision on your application for the summer. 

How long will it take to complete the application form? 

The application will take you 5 - 10 minutes to complete. 

What happens after I complete the application form?

After applying, expect to receive a confirmation email from our Mission Adventures team who will then guide you along the process. We will contact your referees for you. Once we have received your references, we will make a decision about you joining Mission Adventures for the summer. Once you have been accepted, we will be in contact with you about getting ready for your adventure, buying flights to your outreach nation and a few other bits and pieces. 

Who should I contact if I have questions?

If you have any questions at all about Mission Adventures or the application process, please do not hesitate to contact us at We try to answer all emails within 48 hours (excluding weekends) so it won't be long until you've heard back from us!   

Is there anything else I need to know?

For the application, there are several pieces of information it would be helpful for you to have on hand at the time such as your passport and contact details for your referees. There is a section in the middle of the application that asks you to reflect on your faith and your reason for applying for Mission Adventures so it may be helpful to be thinking about that even now!   
We try our best to ensure that everyone can go to their first choice of outreach location. Sometimes, however, this isn't possible due to lack of interest in the location by other Mission Adventure participants or due to reasons relating to our hosts within the nation. We will confirm with you the location of your outreach as soon as possible.
