Summer 2019

Spend 6 to 10 Weeks Making Your Summer Count

Engage Your World

Spend a semester immersed in missions at an Engage site around the world or in the U.S. while continuing your studies online through a college of your choice. This is a great way to learn language, culture and ministry.

Engage Your Year

Spend one to two years on the field with Engage and know what it means to live missionally. Serve in your field of interest while earning a degree. Many students sense the call of God on their life. We believe the best way to clarify that call is to go and do the work of that calling.

Engage Your Summer

The Summer Internship is perfect for students who are looking to make their summer count and get an introduction to what missions is all about.

2019 Summer Internships

Providing a path for students to discover and clarify their destiny in an outward focused environment while earning a college degree.
We believe that the best way to learn and grow, is to do! That’s why every Engage student is placed in an active ministry role where missions is not just talked about, it becomes an everyday reality. Engage students have the opportunity to be immersed in a wide variety of language, culture, and ministry opportunities in the United States and around the world.

We believe that every student ready and willing to serve should have access to a quality education. This way, as they choose to serve, students do not have to sacrifice their educational goals.

We are not just looking for workers, we are looking to invest in the life of each and every student. We believe that as we develop students into missionaries, the mission of God will be accomplished. That is why our staff and site directors are dedicated to personally sharpening the skills and capabilities of each student.

Engage site directors strive to provide safety and structure for all Engage students. We realize the importance of providing a safe environment for our students and we work hard to build programs and policies that stress safety and accountability.

Engage students study abroad with a purpose. It is a cross cultural adventure where students make an impact in the lives of others by sharing God’s message and love through different ministries. Experienced AG missionaries will work with and mentor students in finding their strengths and challenge them to step out of their comfort zone. Students will grow spiritually and closer to God as they step out in faith.

Not only will students grow in their walk but there are future benefits created by studying abroad. University of California, Merced posted findings from a survey they did on study abroad students. Below are some of the benefits from the “What Statistics Show About Study Abroad Students” article.

  • 84% of study abroad alumni felt their studies abroad helped them build valuable skills for the job market.
  • 80% of study abroad students reported that study abroad allowed them to better adapt to diverse work environments.
  • 59% of employers said study abroad would be valuable in an individual’s career later on with their organization.

Study on personality development found that students who studied abroad showed improvements in five core traits compared to their peers who did not study abroad: openness, conscientiousness, agreeableness, extraversion and emotional stability.

… The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.

“When I think of my life’s most amazing and unique experiences, serving with Engage is miles ahead of the rest. I would have never imagined that before graduating college, I’d be living in Southern Asia serving the poorest of the poor and sharing the love of Jesus.”
