With an aging society, workforce shortages, and disparity in access and affordability to needed resources...the demand for well-rounded, experienced, servant-oriented leaders is at an all-time high. More than ever, skilled professionals with compassion and support are needed to foster community in an increasingly complex and diverse world. 

Every internship program is a blend of virtual project development in the students area of interest through small cohort team collaboration that culminates in an experiential, short term, volunteer-based mission in collaboration with other national and international nonprofit agencies and organizations to support the ongoing support and development of under-resourced communities around the world.  We are a 501c3 public charity and depend on philanthropic support for our programs, as there is no cost to students participating in this humanitarian relief effort.

Our Mission: "Our ministry provides global internship programs to individuals who desire to advance their learning while serving to support the wellbeing of those most in need."

Our Vision: "To advance learning and service to build global community"

Our Values: "Our values are based on Matthew 22:36-39 which reads, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself."

Be honest - Ephesians 4:15 "Speak the truth in love" 

Be humble - Philippians 2:3 "Do nothing from rivalry or conceit but in humility count others more significant than yourselves" 

Be thankful - 1 Thessalonians 5:18 "Give thanks in all circumstances" 

Be gracious - Ephesians 4:32 "Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you" 

Be compassionate - Colossians 3:12 "So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of  compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience"



The Curriculum is uniquely service-and-mission oriented.  The intern's project development is facilitated virtually through a blend of online and experiential-based coursework, offered asynchronously.

Experiential learning has significant teaching advantages, namely that it entails a hands-on approach to learning that moves away from the teacher imparting and transferring their knowledge. It makes learning an experience that moves beyond the traditional classroom and provides a more involved way of learning engagement.

All internships begin online, asynchronously, and facilitated by our experienced faculty and staff.  There will be scheduled office hours (live and offline) at various times throughout the week to accommodate different time zones and student schedules.   Student interns collaboratively work with our faculty to develop their project, mutually determine outcomes for success, and begin planning for the travel portion of the internship from the first day.  Once the student successfully completes the internship project, service hours, and program outcomes, the hours are documented and may be applied to their home institution through coordination offered by Mission University once the student completes the appropriate form and completes the project and implementation.

Internship Program Outcomes:

Upon completion of the internship abroad course of study, the graduate will possess knowledge, skills, and dispositions to:

Our Logo

The Cross represents love, humility, and obedience and we give the same love to others that Christ freely gave to us first.  The message of the Cross remains a gift of love.  

The Shield is a classic symbol in higher education, representing knowledge as well as shelter and security.  

The color blue was assigned for holy garments and accredited with being the color of God’s healing and grace. 


The color white was used often to depict holiness, redemption, and purity, and is the universal color of the church.

Cavaliers were the virtuous warriors who acted as champions of righteousness and justice, and quite often they were noble-born individuals who lived their lives in service.


These individuals personified the virtues of camaraderie and exuberance and armed themselves with the acclaim and faith of the people in their communities.  They upheld that trust in all their deeds and through the goodwill they fostered, offered aid to others whenever possible; kept true to their word, and and above all else, defended their communities.
