Are you considering becoming a cross-cultural worker? Then iNet would love to walk along side you and your church as you discern and follow your calling.

Below you will find short-term and long-term opportunities iNet offers. Have a look and get in touch if you want to know more.
Start at Going Global
Going Global is for you if you are thinking, considering or curious about becoming a cross-cultural worker. There are no preconditions or expectations. This is simply a weekend for you to set aside time to hear God speak to you about missions, and how you could become involved. For more information click here.
Come on a short term trip
Where there is interest, iNet works alongside our churches to arrange short-term mission trips for all ages. If you are attending an iNet member church and want to visit some of our cross-cultural workers then get in touch and we might be able to arrange a trip so you can ‘test the water’ and hear better what God may be saying to you.
Ready to become a cross-cultural worker?
If you feel ready to go and want to be supported by iNet, we would love to talk to you and your church about it. Our application process is thorough and can often take up to a year. We have no limitation to sending destinations or projects, so please get in touch and share your ideas.
Come on a short term trip — Youth
Every few years we arrange short-term mission trips especially for teenagers. This is a unique opportunity for young people attending iNet member churches to get new perspectives on life and who God is. It is a life changing experience and we hope to see more young people attend. You will need to attend scheduled training and debrief sessions, fundraise for the trip, and share about your experiences at an iNet event when you return.
