International Children's Institutes

Three to Five Week International CI Trips

Do you have a heart for ministering to children or serving the Lord in a foreign land? We are seeking young men and women who are passionate about discipling people of all nations to serve as Children's Institute teachers. This is an opportunity for you to be part of a team whose goal is to be used by the Lord Jesus to reach children with the Gospel.

What to Expect

Children's Institute training will take place during the trip. The practical hands-on experience of teaching children in a foreign country will develop teaching, communication, and intercultural skills.

Students will have the opportunity to learn about the culture, religion, language, and history of the country that they visit.
