A simple path to the field

Steps To The Field

If you are interested in serving as a missionary with Commission To Every Nation, we welcome your inquiry.
Our desire is to make it simple and straightforward for you to get to the mission field.

Invitation from an established ministry

If you are a new missionary we want to make sure you have someone who will help you
with the transition and oversee your adjustment as well as provide a place for you to serve.
If you have already been serving please tell us about the ministry you have been involved with.


Gather together the information necessary and complete the online application.
We will process your application and contact you as soon as possible.
Please contact us if you have any questions.


All missionaries attend an orientation where we will help you get a great start with Commission To Every Nation and in missions. We will work with you to set a date for you to attend one of our orientations held at the home office in Kerrville, Texas.

We help make the process as simple as possible.

Once your application is complete one of our pastoral care couples will walk you through the entire process. They will be available to answer questions, consult with you about concerns and schedule you for an upcoming orientation.

Established Missionaries

Occasionally missionaries already serving on the field need to find a new mission with which to affiliate. We welcome your inquiry if, as much as it depends upon you, you are leaving your current mission with a good relationship.

  • If you are moving to a new ministry we will need a letter of invitation from the new ministry you will be working with.
  • If you have an established ministry we will need information about that ministry.

New Missionaries

If you are interested in going into missions service, Commission To Every Nation requires two things:

  • A recommendation from your pastor or Church mission staff.
  • An invitation from an established ministry on the field that you will be working with.

We prefer at least a 2 year commitment.
