Discover missions


If you would like to experience what life is like in a missional community, come and join our short-term volunteer programme called “Mission Builders”. As a Mission Builder, you will become a part of our community; attending worship and prayer times alongside our staff & trainees and receive weekly Bible teaching and pastoral care. You will also be working alongside our long-term missionaries in areas such as grounds keeping, food services or hospitality. Many people come year after year because they’ve found it a challenging and spiritually refreshing experience — and a great way to make new friends from around the world. Mission Builders can come from one to six months and must

  • be physically able to work 35 hours a week
  • be over 18
  • speak English on a conversation level

This program is for non-DTS-graduates only. If you have completed a DTS and would like to serve with us for a short time, please apply as short-term staff. If you have questions or want an application form, we would be happy to help you. Feel free to email us at personnel@ywamharpenden.org
