Missionaries

Midwest Mission has few staff, so the vast majority of our mission is carried out by missionaries. Midwest Mission needs & loves its missionaries. Any from the age of 11 and up are welcome to join the Mission!


There are many ways in which you can be a part of the Mission at Midwest Mission. You can serve: 

  • A day
  • A week
  • Or anything in between. 

While at Midwest Mission, missionaries: 

  • Pack kits
  • Sort items
  • Sew
  • Help with mailings
  • Build desks
  • Repair bicycles & sewing machines
  • Help load/unload supplies
  • Or whatever the current requested needs are at the time. 

There are opportunities for those at peak ability & for those individuals who may have limitations. No matter your abilities, there is an important job that needs you!  Midwest Mission has missionaries whom stay on and off campus and those who are local that come when they are available. If you would like to be a part of the Mission or you are interested in a TOUR call Ashley with Midwest Mission at 217.697.4681 to schedule today.
