IMB’s Hands On Missions Program – California Southern Baptist Convention

IMB’s Hands On Missions Program

The IMB’s Hands On Program is an amazing and affordable opportunity for young adults aged 18-29 to go overseas on a mission trip for a little over four months. Trips run twice a year, from January to May in the Spring and August to December in the Fall.

Because of the IMB’s commitment to see young people participate in the Great Commission, the Hands On program is partially subsidized to make it as affordable as possible. As long as you are an active member of a Southern Baptist Church, the entirety of the 4+ month program is $3,950. This includes all trip-related costs: airfare, housing, food, internet/phone, etc.

The only expenses not covered by this amount are personal items like toiletries.

Here are some basic facts about the program:

2023 Spring Session: January 16th- May 13th

2023 Fall Session: August 18th- December 11th

Total Cost for Participant: $3,950

Age Requirements: 18-29* (married couples within the age parameters without kids may participate in Hands On. They still pay individually)

Student Application deadline: October 15 (spring)
