Search Mission Opportunities

CMS values long-term mission. Through a process of careful selection, thorough training and language learning, we aim to locate missionaries in contexts where their gifts and skills can be used to bring glory to the Lord Jesus. If you are considering long-term mission with CMS, you are most likely several years away from being ready to fill a specific job description. This means that the opportunities listed on this page are (mostly) not for specific job roles. Rather they aim to give you a sense of the range and scope of possible future mission placements.

Note: Opportunities with CMS are open to Australian Citizens and Permanent Residents only.
