Join us in building connections around the world. Four streams of service connect people and communities of faith, working together in God's mission.

The People in Partnership program enables United Church people and global partners to encounter each other, accompany each other in God’s mission, and learn more about each other’s contexts. The program provides a framework for the exchange of people (from Canada to global partners, and from global partners to Canada).

For information on current opportunities, check out Other Opportunities on the Job and Volunteer Opportunities page, or contact
