Short Term Project

People International Australia is running a short term project to Central Asia and you are invited to join our team. During this trip the team will spend three weeks in Central Asia meeting local believers & long-term church workers. We plan to spend time with them encouraging and assisting them in their work. Additionally we will have the opportunity to explore some ancient biblical sites.

Next Trip: 2024

Internship Program

Starting in September 2023 we are offering a nine month internship program led by experienced Australian cross-cultural workers. This internship is designed for you to check out what long term ministry overseas would be like without making a long term commitment at the beginning.  Interns are involved in ministry with a team, language learning and learning sessions with long term workers.

Next Internship starts: September 2024

Serving Long Term

There are many opportunities to serve in Central Asia with People International.  Areas of service include medical, school teaching, theological education, agriculture, church planting, accounting and many others.  In all of these ministries we seek to put people into teams for mutual support and encouragement toward the goal of reaching Central Asians with the gospel.

Our ten years serving in Central Asia were some of the best years of our lives.  To be involved in sharing the gospel with people and to see God work in the lives of those who had so little opportunity to hear was a great privilege.  For our children, growing up amongst different cultures is something that that they wouldn’t trade for anything.
