Are you considering long-term mission service? IM global servants work cross-culturally alongside partner organizations around the world to advance the work that is already being done and to contribute their unique gifts to further God’s kingdom. They are adults of all ages with diverse backgrounds and interests, and they serve in a variety of different ministries.
Would you like to learn more about what it means to be an IM global servant? As the Holy Spirit begins to light up your path, you may also find it helpful to talk with your pastor and other mature believers about what God is showing you. Invite them to pray with you. Get involved in mission trips, attend conferences, and meet global servants.
You can also take a significant step by talking with the International Ministries Mission Mobilization team. We are ready to answer your questions and to walk alongside you in the discernment process.
International Ministries personnel serving outside the United States and Puerto Rico are referred to as “global servants” and all commit to IM’s vision of working cross-culturally to invite people to become disciples of Jesus Christ and to proclaim, through both word and deed, God’s reign of justice, peace, and abundant life for all creation. Some IM global servants are sent through joint or associate appointments in which they are related not only to IM, but also with another mission agency, Christian organization, or local church.
There are five stages to becoming a global servant with IM:
Administrative Assistant for World Relief Officer, Global Personnel, and Mission Mobilization

An Invitation from Jeni Pedzinski,
Director of Mission Mobilization
If you’re reading this message, you’re already open to the movement of God in your life and the possibility of an invitation to long-term global service. I’m delighted that you’re taking this first step, exploring what’s out there.
I’ve been where you are now, in the searching. I’ve traveled the meandering path of preparation. I’ve lived with the fire of desire to live and love with faithful abandon. I did all the things. And along the way, I came to understand that a calling is not so much about what you do…or where you do it…calling is about who you are, and who God has called you to be.
My invitation, as you hold the questions about your calling and the possibility of long-term global service, is to let us come alongside you. Tell us your story. Ask your questions. Investigate your longing. Tune in to the Spirit. Let’s walk and wonder and grow…together. And let’s see where God takes us!
