General Baptist International Missions allows you several opportunities to serve God around the globe. At GBIM we offer short term team opportunities with our Mission One program, summer internships for college students, short term mission opportunities as well as opportunities to teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).
MISSION ONE PROGRAM
Our Mission One program exists to provide support and aid to our missionaries and nationals as they work on our different fields. Our program provides opportunities for individuals to participate as members of mission teams, as interns, and as short-term missionaries.
We have many opportunities available, which are listed below. If you would like more information, please contact our Mission One Coordinator, Dr. Jim Pratt.
Our teams are as diverse as the people who participate on them. Some are highly professional, such as our medical teams which provide dental, optical, physical, auditory and medicinal helps. Other teams offer construction expertise, educational training, servant evangelism, and leadership development. To download a Mission One Team application please click on the following link.

Our internship program is available to upper level high school students and college age students. Our interns usually serve from two to eight weeks on one of our international fields. The internship responsibilities depend upon the location and the needs as presented by the missionaries and national workers. On many cases, college credit is available.

As the world shrinks via the internet opportunities abound for North Americans to become involved in the lives of nationals on our various mission fields. This is both welcome and worrisome – more worrisome if the mentor does not take the time to prepare himself/herself with a proper cross-cultural perspective. It is even more worrisome of field missionaries are not consulted or even considered. The missionary is the one who has studied the local culture and language and has made the sacrifice to leave home for new life around the globe. Their insight and wisdom will be helpful to anyone desiring to have a positive mentoring relationship with a national on any of our fields. We do not encourage or condone any mentoring relationship that ignores the value of our field missionaries.
