Take a Christian Gap Year with IMMERSION

A Gap Year mission trip with IMMERSION is an incredibly unique opportunity! Live with host families and serve in practical ways while learning to live the local way, respecting the dignity and humanity of the people you meet, and discovering who God created you to be.

Gap year participants join 2 distinct IMMERSION teams—a 3-month team in the Fall and a 6-month team starting in January—with a break for the holidays in between. Joining two terms like this allows you to explore several different cultures while also spending a significant amount of time in each place.
