Few things in life will challenge, inspire and change you like an overseas, cross-cultural mission trip. There is nothing like playing with an orphan or working side-by-side with a new African friend to help you expand your view of the world and your own life. You get to make a real difference in the world. A trip to Restoration Gateway, Uganda is the perfect opportunity for a life-changing experience as you meet and minister to people who have felt the horrors of the LRA or the AIDS epidemic.

You can visit Restoration Gateway through Short-Term Trips or Internships

Internships are extended stays of 6 weeks - 12 months, in which a person may join our missionary staff. Interns’ activities and responsibilities vary depending on the needs at the time. They are always a part of the church work that we do weekly and particular skill sets or training may influence the area of service. This is an especially good opportunity for people who have a heart for mission work, but are unsure if it is a lifelong calling, or for new graduates. Interns live and work among the long-term team and orphans and gain valuable life changing cross-cultural experience.
