Our Process


Do you feel called to serve in
global ministry long-term?

Has your local church affirmed your gifting and readiness for this?
If so, we want to hear from you!

The Application & Onboarding Process

There are a few boxes to check before you’re ready to launch into your first international assignment. The entire process typically takes 12 to 18 months. Find out what to expect during that time frame.

Submit a Basic Application to let us know you’re interested in serving long-term with us.

Once we have your basic information, our team will contact you within three weeks to set up an initial interview so we can learn more about you.

After receiving the green light to move forward, complete and submit our Theological Questionnaire.

Once we’ve reviewed and approved your Theological Questionnaire, it’s time to submit the confidential In-depth Application.

We’ll contact you to schedule a face-to-face interview with the president of Reaching & Teaching.

Attend a Preview Weekend in Louisville, Kentucky to learn more about the heart of our ministry and where God is leading you to serve. This can be completed before or after applying.

Once our team approves your application and interview process, our Board of Directors will officially appoint you as a Reaching & Teaching global worker.

Attend a two-day bootcamp to learn how to build a robust team of support partners. We provide ongoing coaching and resources to ensure that you are well-supported before you ever go on assignment. All global workers are required to raise 100% of their support prior to leaving.

Complete the week-long, cross-cultural training and orientation program hosted by our team.

Once you’ve raised all of your financial support and have completed the previous steps, you are ready to launch!
