Become a PCA Missionary Intern

Interested in being a full-time missionary but worried about committing for a full year.  At PCA we offer missionary internships of 3 and 6 month durations.  As a missionary intern, you will be able to have the full experience of being a foreign missionary without having to commit to an extended period of time. 

As an intern, you will stay with and be mentored by an existing full-time missionary serving at PCA.  You will have the opportunity to learn and experience what it is to be a missionary for Christ living abroad.  You will participate in working with children at Palacaguina Christian Academy school teaching English and building into the community.
