so that the base runs more smoothly!


Like to cook or serve meals? Serve in our kitchen during your time here. Exercise your creative skills, contribute to make great meals for many people, and help receive, incorporate, and organize the use of donations.

Are you interested in taking pictures, writing, creating video content or working with social media?

We want to inspire people for Missions,

And let people now about the opportunities they have with us and all the exciting things that are happening!

Practical Information


As you volunteer with us, in general, you need to pay for housing and food*.

*Unless something else has been communicated with you.

The monthly cost for this is approximately 300 €.

This includes four meals a day, and a nice room at our dorm :)


Our dorm is an old prison. But don't worry – it's been greatly renovated and is a nice place to stay! Depending on availability you can choose between a shared room, and a single room for a higher price. 

Work Permit?

People from outside EU/EEA need to apply for a workers-permit in order to work as a Mission Builder (costs about 600$).


More questions? This page has been made for our students,

but you might find an answer here

Practical work is just as spiritual as preaching the Gospel.

God is calling skilled workers to help build his kingdom, listening to him for strategies even in the practical and the mundane.
