Beyond the Classroom

Through onSite, you can complete 7 – 10 months of ministry and study while immersed in a different cultural context elsewhere in the world. During this hands‐on experience, you’ll meet with a mentor and gain insight into the world of intercultural ministry. As you reflect on your work in the field, you’ll deepen your classroom learning and improve your ministry practice.
