GMM positions are included under the North American Division (NAD) call list and can be viewed at
NAD Opportunities.

For applicants from the North American Division, we invite you to apply through the
NAD Office of Volunteer Ministries (OVM).

For applicants from outside the NAD, we thank you for your patience and we will announce the application process for international applicants as soon as possible.

Begin this step by creating an account at NAD Office of Volunteer Ministries.
Please Note: Read each section carefully as there is a lot of paperwork to submit to the volunteer office.

When you have completed all of the steps (excluding the "Preparation for Mission" course), then send an email to your GMM contact, whether that be Nancy Edward or Gracelyn Lloyd.

Step 4: Complete 'Preparation for Mission' Course

The Approval Process

Once the above steps are complete, the below approval process can begin and will take 1-3 weeks to complete.

NAD Applicants:

The NAD votes to accept you as a volunteer and then sends it to us to do the same. If we accept you as our volunteer, then the NAD will officially approve of you volunteering for us.

Applicants outside of the NAD:

Your division votes to approve you as a volunteer from their division. Then your application goes to the General Conference (GC) then to us, then back to the GC. You will find out after this point if you have been approved to volunteer on one of our islands. Thank you for your patience.
