LifeYear is a missions immersion program designed to help those with a strong desire to minister in another nation, discover God’s specific ministry assignment for their life, or to pursue international missions long-term.

A LifeYear missionary spends about a year living in another country and culture while serving in an Every Nation church. Your primary job will be to serve the needs of your receiving church/ministry and to stay well-connected with your sending church. While you’re there, you will have a pre-established ministry outreach focus. You will also have opportunities to serve in other capacities and areas of ministry. The goal LifeYear is to help you discover and develop God’s calling for your life while supporting the growth and development of the church in your assigned country.
