Opportunity: Ministry Residency

Ministry Residency 2024-2025

Starting in August 2024, South America Mission invites you to dive into an immersive experience where faith meets real-world impact. Our Residency — an intensive, year-long ministry preparation experience – is more than a program. It’s an opportunity to learn, gain practical ministry experience, and explore your calling in a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about living out their faith authentically. With a focus on practical application, mentorship, and spiritual development, this residency equips you to have an impact in missions, in ministry, or in the marketplace.
