Join the IMMERSION Gap Year Program

Discover your faith and who God created you to be on a 9-month IMMERSION Gap Year mission trip. Journey with your team across the globe. Experience new cultures. Encounter people and situations that will open up your world, and be changed for the better. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to learn, grow, and serve others in ways you never imagined.

As an IMMERSION Gap Year participant, you'll join 2 distinct IMMERSION terms—a 3-month mission trip in the Fall and a 6-month mission trip starting in January—with a 2-month break to travel home for the holiday season. Combining these unique terms allows you to explore several different cultures while also staying long enough for each community to feel like home.
