How will IMMERSION change you?

“On my IMMERSION trip, I really discovered Jesus. I was surrounded by his presence every day and fell in love with who He is. I became passionate about living out my life as a Jesus follower being His hands and feet here on earth.”

A.J. Cocetti 3-Month Namibia
“Experience Mission's approach to missions is very relational and biblically-focused. They provide training in a relevant and God-centered way that not only prepares you for your time serving with them, but also the rest of your life.”

Shauna Falconer Gap Year South Africa / Caribbean

Why IMMERSION?

IMMERSION is for young adults (18-30) looking to be personally challenged in their life and faith—for those in search of the experiences, answers, and life direction that can only be found outside of your comfort zone.

Traveling across the globe, experiencing different cultures, and serving others for 1-9 months can be life-changing, but it can also feel like a big leap of faith. No matter where you're coming from or why you choose to go, everyone wants their IMMERSION experience to matter.

Maybe you’re wondering…
Will IMMERSION be worth the time, money, and effort to go?
Will “pressing pause” on normal life be good in the long run?
Will I be challenged to grow in the ways I'm hoping?

We believe the answer to all these questions is a resounding “YES!” Over the last 8 years, hundreds of young adults have traveled with Experience Mission on IMMERSION programs around the world and returned with completely new perspectives on life and what comes next.

IMMERSION helps you make a difference in the world, mature and grow in your faith in God, and begin to discover who you were created to be. Will you live boldly and say YES?
