Long-Term Missions

Application Process


The long-term service application process ensures that all Iris missionaries have a deep understanding of and commitment to Iris's vision and core values and has four phases:

1. Familiarize yourself with Iris
Become aware of Iris' history by reading "There Is Always Enough," by Rolland and Heidi Baker, and "Visions Beyond the Veil," by H. A. Baker, Rolland's grandfather. We also recommend viewing the videos "The Face of Revival, "Stopping for the One" and "Mama Heidi." Viewing photo galleries and reading newsletters on the Iris website are also highly recommended.

2. Complete the Harvest School of Missions
This three-month immersive missions training program in Pemba, Mozambique, is essential to integrate with the spiritual dynamics at Iris. More information on the Harvest School of Missions can be found on the Harvest School web page.

3. Engage in pre-application preparations
Seek the Lord for a definitive confirmation of your call to service with Iris Global. Seek the counsel of mature Christians who have experienced the difficulties of severe cultural changes that may be experienced on the mission field. Study the language of the area where you hope to enter long-term service. Take a short-term trip to an Iris base. Be responsible in faith for your financial support. Develop a team of intercessors who will support you in prayer.

4. Begin the application process
If you have completed steps one, two and three and would like to pursue a long-term position with Iris, contact the long-term committee.
