Spend your college years investing in what truly matters.

The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few

You have a unique opportunity to leverage this season of life to fulfill the Great Commission across the world!

Link Teams

Summer (5-8 weeks)

Join a team of students to build relationships and share the Gospel among an Unreached People Group this summer. Through our in-depth training process, your team will be prepared to work together, minister cross-culturally and serve your host overseas. Teams typically consist of 4-8 students and overseas projects usually take place during June & July.

Global Internships

Summer/ Semester (2-6 months)

Internships provide opportunities for students to minister overseas using skills related to their field of study. Common internships include: engineering, business, medical, agriculture, IT/ web-design, and ESL. Interns serve alongside men and women who are passionate about using their vocational skills to help fulfill the Great Commission.

What does the typical OneLink project timeline look like?
  • Fall Semester – Application and references are due (November)
  • End of year – Teams selected (December/January)
  • March – Team Leader Training
  • May – Orientation Week
What is a OneLink team like?

Teams typically have 4-6 team members and range from 2-8 members. All teams participating in OneLink training have a designated team leader. The majority of teams are peer led. Team leaders are intentionally selected after their application is reviewed by the sending campus ministry or church and the OneLink staff. OneLink training is designed for teams to work alongside and be supervised by either a career missionary or a two-year missionary while overseas.

Your son or daughter’s team will work with an established overseas partner who shares vision and values with OneLink and the sending campus ministry/church. Most teams minister to students and their peers in the country they visit.

What will my son or daughter be doing overseas?

Generally, teams teach English, study language, or participate in a cultural exchange program. Their aim will be to build relationships with locals and share the good news of Jesus.

Is medical or health insurance provided?

OneLink does not directly provide medical, health, or travelers insurance. We strongly recommend students purchase an insurance policy. We recommend a policy with Gallagher Charitable International Insurance Services. This insurance includes coverage for life, health, accidents, lost luggage, etc. and is included in the total trip cost.

How much does it cost to go overseas with OneLink?

Most OneLink trips cost between $4,000 and $6,000, including airfare.

Will my son or daughter be safe?

OneLink International works in conjunction with the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention to keep everyone safe. We only partner with long-term missionaries who have established or are establishing work in an area. There are also policies the students are required to follow to help ensure their safety. There are always certain risks involved in international travel, but we have taken great strides to mitigate them. All team members are required to participate in a week-long orientation prior to their departure from the US. During this week they are given the information and training they will need to function safely in the location where they will be serving.

How will my son or daughter be expected to pay for this trip?

All team members who go overseas and participate in OneLink training raise their own prayer and financial support. Sending out support letters is the method most team members use, but other means of fundraising are used as well. Once students are accepted for a team, they will receive more details about fundraising.

Can my son or daughter call home?

Yes. We ask each team member to limit their communication to one twenty-minute call or video chat to an immediate family member, once every two weeks.

Phone calls and emails will be considered a privilege, not a right, and team leaders or field personnel may suspend these privileges if necessary. This is never a punishment of any kind but it may need to happen for a variety of other reasons. Your son or daughter’s Team Leader will call or email a contact person in the U.S. once they have arrived safely in-country and parents can communicate with that contact person. His or her team will be encouraged to send one team email each week. Note that during Orientation there is no free time for communication with family or friends. We ask students to leave phones in their vehicles due to the nature of Orientation Week.

Who do I call in case of an emergency at home?

The OneLink staff is available 24/7 at (316) 201-3231 while your son or daughter’s team is overseas or traveling to and from their destination. If you have an emergency while your son or daughter is at orientation you may call (316) 201-3231.
