Other Details

South America Mission (SAM) is a nonprofit religious organization dedicated to proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God throughout Latin America by focusing on discipleship, church multiplication, leadership training, and community impact.


Starting in August 2024, South America Mission invites you to dive into an immersive experience where faith meets real-world impact. Our Residency — an intensive, year-long ministry preparation experience – is more than a program. It’s an opportunity to learn, gain practical ministry experience, and explore your calling in a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about living out their faith authentically. With a focus on practical application, mentorship, and spiritual development, this residency equips you to have an impact in missions, in ministry, or in the marketplace.

What you bring: 

  • Embrace a teachable and flexible mindset.
  • Thrive as self-starters and team players.
  • Bring ministry and/or mission experience (volunteer or job-related).
  • Preferably hold a college degree (Seminary is a plus).
  • Bonus points for some Spanish or Portuguese skills. 

What you can expect to experience through this residency:

  • Serve on a team of residents working as a vital part of the SAM home office.
  • Join a short-term mission trip working alongside our SAM missionaries and ministries in South America.
  • Engage church partners to deepen their involvement in the Great Commission.
  • Mobilize students and recent grads to engage in meaningful service.
  • Immerse yourself in studying God’s Word and building connections with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds.
  • Intentional mentoring by mission and ministry leaders.
