3: discover the details

You must be at least 18 years old when you start (you can apply at 17). There are no academic qualifications required. We looking for young adults who are committed Christians who regularly attend church and have a desire to share their faith.

The Pais Movement will train you for the apprenticeship you choose. We start with a 3-week intensive seminary-style conference before placing you as part of a team in your chosen nation.

You will serve in a church in order to empower others. Throughout the week you will either reach young people in community projects and schools, college students in university campuses or adults within the business world. It’s your choice, just choose the option that fits you best! Each apprenticeship comes with goals and standards and you will have various objectives that will help you grow in your character and spiritual development. By the end of an apprenticeship everyone is surprised to see how much God has done in them and through them.

Previous apprentices often share stories of how they have grown in the following areas: Leadership, Confidence, Discipleship, Theology, Mentoring, Presentation and Communication.

Pais apprentices receive continuous training throughout the year. Beginning with 3 weeks of foundational training, the apprenticeship then moves to a more practical hands-on phase.

They are mentored bi-weekly by their Team Leaders and work through a specialized learning process after each piece of ministry. They will take part in additional training conferences throughout the year.

As well as 200 hours of seminary-style training, apprentices will join with Pais teams throughout the world and watch weekly interactive training videos called ‘Livewire’.

We also offer an optional Diploma. Read more here: Qualification Options

The apprenticeship that Pais offers has three initial options as far as the length of time of a course. Further leadership and specific longterm staff positions are also available.

The traditional one-year option starts at the beginning of the academic year, either August or January depending on the nation.

The eighteen-month option is open to apprentices who want to join Pais mid-way through an academic year.

A third option is available to train for a career in ministry and includes assistance from Pais to find a long-term paid position. All options can be extended and are offered in most nations.

One amazing fact that sets our apprenticeship apart from any other similar opportunities, is that it’s FREE.

How is it free?

Our Pais mission year includes a full scholarship valued at $10,400, awarded free to all those joining Pais.
This amazing opportunity is made available by our strategic partnerships who are invested in the equipping of young Missionaries.

Your accommodation is provided for the year. This is typically with a family of the church you are serving with. You will have your own room and will be treated as a lodger although quite often you will rapidly become part of the family. As well as all of this, the conferences, mentoring, consultations and the 200+ hours of lectures and workshops are provided free.

You must provide your own spending money for personal items as well as any visa costs and flight tickets to and from the nation you are serving in.

Pais will provide transportation to and from our conferences during the year.
