Volunteer in Africa

Join us. Come be a part of what God is doing in Africa. Love on His people with children swarming around you. Use your talents and abilities to bring His light to the nations. Raise the impact of your donations to the next level.
Be a part of our team. Invest in Africa’s future.

We love having volunteers! There is nothing quite like the beauty and personality of East Africa – you’re in for quite an experience! At CMA, we will work with you or your group to determine the purpose and plan for your trip. When you come to work with CMA, you’re doing more than giving hand-outs or building temporary structures. You’re participating in a movement that will continue long after you’ve returned home – a movement characterized by exponential growth of the Christian faith and tangible transformation of communities and people groups.




Put your financial contributions to work.


We encourage groups who have made significant financial commitments to CMA to bring a team to Africa and build relationships with our staff and the beneficiaries of their funding. We never want our donors to feel like they’re just sending money overseas. Your donations have a real impact on real people, and we invite you to connect with the very people you are helping. We invite you to get your hands dirty, following in the footsteps of Jesus as you humbly serve your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.


Missions, responsibly.


We approach our work with a goal to help people help themselves through the power of Christ, bringing communities out of dependency and into self-sufficiency. When planning your trip, we will help you to look at the big picture – avoiding the common mistake of ‘accomplishing’ things that end up hurting the local community after you’ve gone home, and doing what we can to ensure that your time in Africa will further work that will carry on for years to come. Making a trip to Africa can be quite costly, and we will help you carefully consider using your finances in a responsible and God-honoring way. We will help you determine the right size of group to bring and proper length for your trip, so that you can be confident that your missions trip has made a positive impact.
