Join the Movement
We are looking for people who resonate with our "missional incarnational" approach to sharing the love of Christ in the world. You will find all of us at CA to be very relational, so we want to move from the website and into conversation as soon as possible. If you would like to explore opportunities with us – short-term teams, internships, volunteering, bi-vocational or full-time church planting - please click on the "Get Started Now" button below to complete our Interest Form. We look forward to hearing your story, and searching for ways that we might extend God's Kingdom on earth together.
To begin connecting with CA:
1) Attend our Intro to CA Webinar
INTRO TO CA
During this 90 minute call, you will hear a bit about the history of CA, the current scope of CA's ministry, and a variety of ways that you might pray about getting involved with us. It is perfect for people who are exploring opportunities for missional engagement, or who want to inquire about connecting to this movement.
2) Fill out your Personal Profile
Ask us to email you a CA Personal Profile form. This profile gives us a very high level overview of your situation and helps us to better move forward with you. It is meant to be fairly simple and we intend for you to only take about 30 minutes to fill it out. Once we receive this, we will follow up with you to let you know where we go from here.
Please click here and ask for our CA personal profile form.
3) Attend our Engage Assessment weekends, run throughout the world, throughout the year.
Engage is our missionary assessment event for those seeking to join CA either as full-time or bi-vocational church planters. It truly is a fantastic time that culminates our application process and helps you assess what Christ is calling you to. Invitations to Engage are issued based upon your personal profile and each individual situation, so we would love to get your profile in soon. The next Engages are:
The Hague, Netherlands - Nov 16-20, 2016
2017 DATES COMING SOON!
Please click here and tell us of your interest in attending Engage.
It is impossible to spark a grassroots movement without lots of volunteers involved! Wherever you live, we can find a way to leverage your skills and gifts to push out this dynamic movement into the world. Please fill out the contact page by clicking on the Get Started Now button below.
Whether you are interested in a service project, a prayer-walking journey, or just want to see what God is doing in our world, we would like to get you involved. Trips range from one week to 3 months, in case you are interested in dedicating an entire summer. For a complete listing of our current trips, contact our Short Term Trips coordinator by clicking on the Get Started Now button below. Or clickHERE to see a list of our upcoming trips.
We are pleased to help you explore a missionary calling through our internship program. CA internships last from 3 months to 1 year, and take place within the context of one of our existing church plants. Working under our missionary leadership, you can get engaged in hands-on ministry, spiritual formation, and – more than anything else – blessing people in the name of Christ.

In our current economy, it often makes sense for you to bring your occupational skills to the mission field as a way of "tent making". This means that you would serve as a self-supporting missionary by getting a job that not only provides your needed income, but one that pushes you deeper into the community you hope to reach. Bi-Vocational missionaries may also raise some of their support in order to have more time to dedicate to ministry initiatives. Work permits vary according to your citizenship and the country in which you desire to serve, so get the ball rolling by clicking on the Get Started Now button below.
Our full-time missionaries serve within our church plants with exclusive focus on showing the love of Jesus to others. In this role you would raise all of your personal support, and spend all of your time involved in ministry initiatives. Christian Associates will provide you with the necessary training and tools to equip you for missionary service, and to coach you into effective participation on a church planting team.
