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.
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.
“Engage taught me what dying to self really means. It’s truly amazing the transformation that takes place in one’s life when they finally learn to take their eyes off themselves and onto God.”

“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.”
Daniel – Engage Southern Asia
“Engage was one of the best things I have ever done in my life. It has changed my life, and God has fulfilled and exceeded every expectation I had for this year.”
