Take your foot off the brake.  Partner with Short-Term. Find candidates for your short-term needs.

How this Works

Get started by completing the Registration for Short-Term. Once approved, you’ll be able to complete your profile and post the short-term opportunities you’re searching to fill. Candidate profiles will be electronically matched with your organization’s profile and with your posted trips, assignments, and internships based on their skills and interests. Post as many opportunities as you want, whenever you want, and pursue the candidates that appear to be a good fit. You will have access to all the candidate profiles in our MissionNext Short-Term database, as well as new ones coming in each week.  Our Qualified Candidate Scale (QCS) will indicate how prepared they are to start serving.

Just as our Journey Guides offer free coaching to the candidates to help them prepare for service, we offer your staff all the support you need in the form of initial training and ongoing assistance, as needed, to help you make the most of your partnership with MissionNext.

Discover the possibilities and connections God has in store for your organization!
