STEP gets you past the adrenaline high of short-term missions to deeper cross-cultural exposure. Learn from international leaders, immerse in local language and culture and serve in practical ways.
Since 2003, STEP has designed team internships to give young people realistic, intensive and developmental cross-cultural ministry experience. Teams spend a few weeks training in Pennsylvania and complete six months of ministry in Spain or a Latin American country. Teams work in partnership with local churches.
Our STEP locations may vary from year to year. In 2015, the Board for World Missions approved a new policy stating that BICWM will not send anyone under the age of 21 to countries that have a U.S. State Department Travel Warning. We are committed to the safety and well-being of the STEP participants.
