There are three steps to becoming a long term global worker sent by Redemption Hill:
Step 1: Get connected. Join a community group and if you’re not a member of Redemption Hill, become one.
Step 2: Pursue assessment. Here is the assessment criteria:
- Call—Do you have a clear and specific calling to reach an unreached people group?
- Character—Is your life an example to other Christians? Here is a detailed list of qualifications that will be used in the assessment process. [Link to Qualification—see below]
- Competence—Do you possess the Biblical knowledge necessary for your missionary pursuit?
- Customs—Do you engage regularly in spiritual disciplines that sustain your soul in trying times?
- Capability—Do you possess skills that may be required to fulfill your missionary calling (i.e. medical training, business acumen, etc.)?
You will be responsible for forming an assessment team that will assist in confirming your qualification for long term global work. The team should include:
- A close friend who is a member of Redemption Hill (i.e., someone in your 3D group
- Your community leader
- Your regional elder
Step 3: With the help of Redemption Hill leadership, determine a solid ministry platform and secure the necessary support mechanisms for a life of cross-cultural ministry.

There are two types of short term endeavors that Redemption Hill members can be involved in:
Endeavors in an “Unreached” Context (where there is no existing church)
- Redemption Hill prioritizes short term endeavors to people groups that are unreached and unengaged. If you would like to know more about what an “unreached” or unengaged people group is, click here.
- The primary objective in an unreached context is to establish the church.
The primary means to achieve the objective is sending long-term church planting teams to unreached people groups with short term workers assisting long-term teams as needed.
Endeavors in a “Reached” Context (where there is at least some presence of the church among the people group(s) being ministered to)
- We believe that short-term trips to people groups that are reached by the Gospel often equip people to take the Gospel to people groups with no Gospel witness.
- Redemption Hill encourages and, as appropriate, supports various international endeavors that focus on people groups that have been reached by the Gospel; however, we seek to shift the primary international focus to an increased, strategic engagement of unreached and unengaged people groups. For more about unreached and unengaged people groups, click here.
- The primary objective in a reached context is to strengthen the existing church.
- The primary means to achieve the objective is sending short-term mission teams to serve the church that exists among the particular people group(s).
