Short Term Experience

Start your MAF adventure with a short-term experience!

A short-term experience is like a test flight into the world of missionary work. It's your opportunity to be a part of the MAF team, serve in a developing nation and find out if God is calling you into long-term Christian mission work. Use your skills to enhance and support the ongoing work of MAF in one of our vital overseas programmes, and add some incredible experience and stories to your CV.

Some short-term experiences are paid roles, MAF also covers some living costs for all roles. Please see the role description or contact us to find out more.
