For Advance, mission internships, Discipleship Teams, and GO! Summer

Read this page of instructions carefully and then complete the application form. (Link at the bottom of this page)

The following 4 steps are intended to help you understand and know what to expect of EMM's short-term application process. You and EMM are under no obligation working through these steps, and either party may withdraw at any point.

1. Application
Complete an application form for short-term placement. If you do not hear back from us within two weeks, please contact us to ensure that we have received your application. Applicants preparing for an assignment for longer than two months are required to form a Missionary Support Team (MST). You will receive information about forming an MST after you return a completed application to EMM.

2. Getting acquainted
Upon receiving your application form, we will email your reference forms. Please alert your references that they will be receiving an emailed form to complete and return within 2 weeks (unless we request they return it sooner by marking it URGENT). Once we receive your references, we will then contact you and arrange for an interview. If distance is a factor, we may arrange a phone interview. We may also contact your pastor by phone as part of the discerning process.

3. Approval for service
The Personnel Placement Coach will share your information with the Mission Team and together they will decide on your approval for short-term missions.

4. Official invitation
We will extend an invitation upon approval, hopefully within two weeks of the interview. (Due to travel schedules, we may not always be able to meet this goal.) Upon acceptance of the invitation, you will receive an approval packet via email.
