You’ll have a hands-on missions experience serving real needs through the ministry site of your choice. Each day you’ll head out first thing in the morning to meet up with your site leader on the field. Every day, and every site is a unique experience. You’ll have siesta in the middle of the day, then join the rest of your team for dinner and an evening activity.

You’ll be serving alongside full-time missionaries at occupational ministry sites to meet the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the local community. Site leaders are experts in their field, and they also have a heart for sharing their passion with YOU, the student. You’ll join 2-4 other students at the ministry site that is the best fit for you. We can’t always give you your first choice, but we do promise to make sure we find a great fit for everyone.

At all SI ministry locations you’ll spend your days at ministry sites, and have free time together with the rest of your team. In the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua you’ll stay at a ministry base. There will be guys and girls cabins and lots of great shared spaces on base for meals and team time. In Costa Rica and Guatemala, you’ll also have plenty of shared time with your team, but enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stay with a host family along with 1-2 other students.

We take food preparation extremely serious. We take every possible precaution to ensure that food is sourced and prepared safely. You’ll eat delicious local recipes that are the perfect end to each ministry day.

Yes. Safety is our #1 concern. We have extensive protocols that we’ve developed over 25 years and trained staff to handle all types of problems. We know we do ministry in challenging communities, but we prepare and take wise precautions to minimize or eliminate risks.

  • My experience in Guatemala was amazing. It was such a blessing to interact with a family and learn about Guatemalan culture. I love the work we did and seeing how it fit into the bigger picture of what God is doing in Guatemala.

    Andrew Grigg James Madison University, VA
  • After being here in the DR, God has been showing me through the SI staff what true ministry is all about. Ministry is about relationships, not just tasks. And even more than that—about being open to God using you in whatever way possible.
