Live and serve in communities around the world for 1, 3, or 6 months
Serve alongside communities, build authentic relationships, and live the local way as part of IMMERSION, EM's cross-cultural mission program for young adults. Immersion challenges team members to put themselves second, to be vulnerable and uncomfortable for the sake of others. When we live on someone else's turf, the game changes. It's no longer about us or what we came to do. It's about how we can join in, listening to stories and serving in practical ways.
We uphold the dignity of others when we eat their food, walk their roads, sing in their language, and bathe in their river. When we live this way, it's as if we're saying, "we're all the same." This intentional living and being is what makes Immersion unique and life-changing for team members and communities alike. Places halfway around the world start to feel like home. Strangers become family. The message of Jesus becomes more than just words on a page—it comes alive.
Immersion is a cross-cultural experience which allows you to connect with the local people by living the local way. living the local way allows you to be able to share Christ through your relationships. This is an organic way to share the gospel. Through this experiences you will grow closer to God by relying on Him for direction. You will have the opportunity to gain a new perspective as you strive to see things as He sees them.
Teams gain new insight and understanding as they dovetail into the local way of life. You will share your experiences, gain understanding, and grow closer to those around you.
Immersion trips currently run in Southern Africa, the Caribbean, South East Asia, Europe, and The Holy Land. If you are interested in being a part of an Immersion team please fill out an interest form for more information.
