Recruitment Weekends

FOCUS hosts Recruitment Weekends as an important part of our hiring process. These Recruitment Weekends give applicants adequate time to meet FOCUS staff face to face, get questions answered, and meet other young adults who are applying to be missionaries. Most importantly, it allows us to get to know you and your experiences. 

To be eligible to attend a Recruitment Weekend you must first submit an online application. Once we receive and review your application, we will contact you to let you know if we are extending an invitation to attend a Recruitment Weekend (typically, but not always, the one geographically closest to you). Keep in mind the application deadlines noted below. Only applications submitted before the deadline for each weekend will be considered for invitation. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].
