transForm (long-term)

We believe that incarnation is God’s pattern for mission.


To accomplish our salvation, God became one of us in Jesus Christ, humbling himself even to the point of death. We follow Christ’s example by deeply identifying with the people to whom he sends us, learning and respecting their languages and cultures, serving amid the risks associated with their settings, expressing the grace and truth of the gospel in contextually appropriate ways, and celebrating the reality that God is with us. - VMMissions Core Value: Faithfulness

Therefore, we equip people to be incarnational wherever they go.

By serving long-term (2+ years) with our transForm program, it takes a lot of investment in time, training, study, and financial resources to embark on a long-term assignment. It takes a clear sense of call from the Lord and a deep love for people.

Long-term commitment allows the space and time to build friendships and trust with people in your host culture, and for intensive language study if needed. Living among the people you love and share the gospel with - over the course of years - is a powerful example of humility and solidarity with God's people and everyone God is calling to repentance and reconciliation.


VMMissions has a number of open service opportunities for 2+ year term commitments. Opportunities are available for individuals, couples, and families, overseas and domestically. Assignments generally include intensive cultural and language learning (if applicable) and training in holistic witness. Note: all listed service assignments are open for immediate consideration unless indicated.

For shorter-term assignments, tranSend offers 1-2 year internships, and team-based opportunities (one to three weeks) are available through E3 Collective.
